Burrata Salad with Pesto

Today we made a delicious Italian meal salad with burrata. Burrata is an Italian delicacy native to the Puglia region. It is simply a large ball of mozzarella filled with cream and ricotta.

When the burrata is cut open, the creamy core flows out of the cheese. Especially because of this you see burrata more and more on the menu of restaurants. It is a true spectacle to serve! Fortunately, you don't have to go to a restaurant to try this Italian delicacy. Burrata has recently also been available in supermarkets.

We bought it and made a delicious low-carb salad with burrata ourselves. Low carb burrata salad The basis for our burrata salad is arugula, cherry tomatoes, pine nuts and Parmesan cheese. Flavors that go very well with burrata are dried ham and basil.

We have brought these flavors back in the form of prosciutto and green pesto. The result is a delicious creamy salad with many different flavors that complement each other.

The green pesto and the cream from the burrata make up the dressing. Because we left out the croutons, a serving of this salad contains only 7.1 g of carbohydrates.

Tips! With this recipe you can make a meal salad for two people. It is also possible to serve the salad for more people as a side dish. To do this, add more arugula salad mix and cherry tomatoes. The amount of burrata can then remain the same.

The salad is best fresh, but you can also eat the leftovers the next day. I hope you like it! Check out our other keto recipes for more inspiration.
