Strawberry Burrata Salad with a Poppyseed Dressing

Strawberry, pistachio, and burrata salad with a poppyseed dressing …super fresh, flavorful and satisfying!

I’m super excited to share this new salad recipe with you today. It’s perfect for summer, or anytime really. I recently discovered my love of burrata cheese after trying it in a salad at a local restaurant and have been putting it on everything ever since! It is so good. Why didn’t anyone tell me about it sooner? I’ve definitely been seeing this cheese as a new trend for salads and it really is amazing. It tastes great in salads, on top of pizzas and toast.

The inspiration to my Strawberry Burrata Salad... these delicious Curate bars!

 

MY OTHER RECIPES

I’ve partnered with Curate for this post and the Curate Irresistible Dark Chocolate (my favorite snack bars) inspired this recipe. The main ingredients in the bar that I wanted to incorporate in my recipe were the strawberries and pistachios. Such a delicious combination and the flavors blend so well. There really is so much flavor in this salad.

I introduced the Curate Snack Bars here and I’ve been obsessed with them ever since. The Irresistible Dark Chocolate includes: Dark chocolate, pistachios, and strawberries to make the perfect trio. The berries add a bright note to rich toasted oats, quinoa, and almond butter. They are available at retailers nationwide. Have you tried them yet?

These Curate bars are delicious and come in so many different flavors!

Okay, back to this delicious salad. I wanted to share this trick I recently discovered on the cooking channel for keeping your dressing smooth and creamy. All you need to do is place an ice cube in the salad dressing and whisk (or shake in a jar) for 30 seconds. Then remove the ice cube :)Strawberry Burrata Salad... making the Poppyseed Dressing

Strawberry Burrata Salad Ingredients

All you need for this burrata salad is a spring mix/and or kale, strawberries, avocados, pistachios and burrata cheese. Then layer it all in a large bowl, drizzle the poppyseed dressing over the top of the salad and toss it all together.

    Ohhh I love this! Mozzarella and strawberry go so well together, and I’m sure burrata will be just as delicious in this combo. Love the addition of the pistachios!
