Make this apple burrata salad with your favorite variation of fresh sliced apples. Toss arugula, golden raisins, cherry tomatoes, red onions, and c،pped pistachios with a simple dressing and then finish off the the w،le salad with burrata cheese.
This apple burrata salad has been my go-to salad recipe. I even recently just made it with peaches and it was fantastic.
I love that it’s made with fresh, garden veggies and features apples and burrata cheese, two of my favorite foods. It makes for the perfect segue salad going from summer to fall.
The golden raisins and pistachios are the cherry on top in addition to the super simple wine white vinaigrette dressing!
What is in this apple burrata salad?
Apples: we are big fans of ،ney crisp apples in general, but they are especially delicious in this salad. They are crisp, juicy, and fruity. If you have a favorite apple go ahead and use it!
Burrata: you add the burrata salad to the top of this delicious salad. Burrata cheese comes in a few different sizes, 8-oz. large ، and 4-oz. small ،. We use 2 8-oz. ، but you can also use 4 4-oz. ،.
Golden raisins: golden raisins are bits of sweet delight. We love the sweet and tangy bite that they offer that is just a bit different than regular raisins.
Pistachios: salty and meaty pistachios make everything better.
Red onion: the only onion we recommend for this salad is a thinly sliced red onion. It is the right amount of sweetness, flavor, and crunch.
Arugula: this is a green salad and we use arugula as our greens. If you are not an arugula fan, you can use your favorite greens, too. A spring mix would be delightful.
Ingredients Swaps and Variations
This salad is extremely customizable. Swap the apple for any in season fruit such as peaches (my personal fav), pears, or cherries.
If you can’t find burrata cheese, you can try fresh mozzarella.
Really any green works in this salad. Try mixed greens, romaine, or baby kale.
Add a protein to make it a complete meal. It would be delicious with grilled chicken, cast iron steak, or air fryer pork tender،.
Don’t skip the apples resting. Part of the dressing is letting the apples rest so that some liquid is extracted from the apples. That excess liquid adds delicious juices adds to the dressing!
Don’t toss this salad until right before serving. All of the ingredients for this salad plus the arugula will make for a soggy salad if it is left out for too long. Be sure to toss this salad right before serving and not a moment sooner.
Get creative. Many of the ingredients for this salad can be subs،uted. If you don’t have pistachios, use walnuts or toasted pine nuts. If you aren’t a fan of arugula, use a spring mix.
What is burrata cheese?
Burrata is an Italian cheese made from mozzarella and cream. The outer part of the cheese is a solid mozzarella texture, while the inside is creamy and soft. This combination makes it perfect for this warm burrata and roasted tomatoes recipe.
What does burrata cheese go well with?
Burrata is a very versatile cheese that goes with a variety of fruits, greens, breads, and even all on its own.
We do not recommend storing this salad dressed. If you are preparing this salad for another day, we would recommend preparing all of the ingredients separate and tossing the salad right before serving.
You can serve this salad as a main meal or a side. My family recently had this with grilled steak and baked ،atoes and it was phenomenal. For dessert, try an in-season fruit crisp such as cherry crisp or triple berry crisp.
