I’m super excited to share this new burrata 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’s 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.

This recipe has quickly become one of my new favorites. It has such a delicious combination of ingredients and the flavors blend together so well. There really is so much flavor. It is so yummy and has been on rotation in my house a lot this summer!

Poppyseed dressing

This poppyseed dressing is the perfect compliment to the flavors in this recipe. Making a homemade version is so easy and tastes delicious. You can even make a creamy version with mayo instead of oil.


  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 Tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoons poppyseeds
  • 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • dash of salt

Instructions: Add all ingredients to a jar and shake to combine. You can also add the ingredients to a bowl and whisk until combined. Store any leftovers in the fridge for up to one week.

Pro tip: 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 dressing and whisk (or shake in a jar) for 30 seconds. Then remove the ice cube. Works like a charm!

  • If you can’t find burrata or would like to use a different cheese, you easily can. Mozzarella or feta would taste delicious also.
  • Add baked or grilled chicken for some extra protein. Steak would taste delicious too. :)
  • While I LOVE the flavor from the pistachios, you could swap for pecans or walnuts if you don’t have any on hand.
  • Feel free to use store bought poppyseed dressing for convenience.
  • Balsamic dressing or an easy vinaigrette also taste delicious.
