Roasted Beets & Burrata Salad: Kicked up Caprese Salad!

healthy easy burrata roasted beets salad

My husband and I had lunch at Il Barone in Irvine, CA  a few weeks ago and my favorite part of the meal was the beets & burrata salad.   It was my first time eating burrata and I was in love!   Burrata means “buttered” in Italian.  It’s mozzarella with a cream filling – it’s creamy and delicious!  I knew I had to recreate this salad at home….

(When you slice into the burrata – the center is soft and will fall out of the mozzarella “shell” if you’re not careful)

It’s all about the fresh flavors of the beets, cheese,  tomatoes and basil – you just need a sprinkle of salt & pepper and a light drizzle of good extra virgin olive oil & balsamic vinegar.

Enjoy this simple – yet amazing salad.  It’s light & refreshing.  The roasted beets are sweet and pairs well with the creamy burrata.   I have a very special place in my heart for this salad…

Here’s what it the salad looks like when the beets and tomatoes are diced:

    I found burrata at Costco, but I will keep an eye out at other grocery stores and keep you posted if I spot it else where. I’m glad you’re going to try it!

    A very good burrata cheese can be found at Trader Joes, and at a very good price. Von’s carries it also and Gelson’s, but at a much higher price point.
