Zandam Burrata and Strawberry Salad

June 26, 2021

Burrata is a modern Italian cheese made from Mozzarella and cream. It has a solid Mozzarella shell, filled with stracciatella (fresh Mozzarella shreds soaked in cream). This gives Zandam Burrata an unusual soft texture and it is perfect with the crisp sweetness of the strawberries and fragrant mint in this recipe.

Ingredients For The Pesto

2 cups (40g) mint leaves

1 clove garlic, minced

½ cup (120 ml) olive oil

For The Salad

2 cups (300g) strawberries, sliced

About 100g (one tub) of Zandam Burrata

A handful of fresh mint

Salt and freshly ground pepper

Method / The How:

Process the ingredients for the pesto in a food processor. If you don’t have one, finely chop everything and combine together.

Place the mint leaves and strawberry slices on your serving plate. Sprinkle with some salt and cracked black pepper.

Add the pesto and gently stir to coat the strawberries with the pesto.

Gently tear the Zandam Burrata open and place in the middle of the serving plate.

Serve and enjoy the taste of this award-winning cheese!
