This delicious salad, envisioned by chef David Burke, has become my favorite go-to dish this summer. With only five essential ingredients it's a cinch to make but looks like you've slaved all afternoon. Use the freshest local ingredients: asparagus, tomatoes, basil and add delicious proscuitto and creamy buratta cheese (mozzarella's hip little sister). Dress with a vinegrette and you have a stunning lunch or elegant starter for dinner-it's simple and so delicious!
Five Ingredient Buratta Salad
2 ounces fresh burrata mozzarella
1 ounce balsamic vinaigrette
2 ounces proscuitto, sliced paper thin
4 steamed,chilled asparagus spears
3 slices tomato
Season asparagus and tomato slices with salt and pepper and drizzle with vegetable oil. Grill asparagus for three minutes, turning once. Arrange the asparagus side-by-side and top with tomatoes, prosciutto, and burrata. Drizzle with balsamic vinaigrette and garnish with a basil leaf.
