Burrata, prosciutto, and fig salad.

How to make a Fig and Prosciutto Salad

What is burrata cheese?

It is an Italian cheese made from cow’s milk. The outer layer is mozzarella and the inner layer is stracciatella cheese with cream.

Think of it as a mozzarella ball with a creamy center.

Can I use a different type of cheese?

Of course!! I often make this salad with ricotta cheese or fresh mozzarella. You can also use crumbled feta, goat cheese, or blue cheese.

What about salad dressing?

The salad is great without any dressing :-) The creaminess of the burrata cheese helps keep the salad moist.

A drizzle of balsamic vinegar or a light vinaigrette goes great with the salad if you do want dressing!

Roasting the pine nuts:

  • Use the broil setting in your oven and keep a close eye on them! Pine nuts can burn easily if you step away for too long.

  • Broil them for 1 minute and then toss and broil for an additional 1 minute to get an even toast.

How to Make Roasted Figs

  • Heat oven to 350 F and line a baking pan with parchment paper

  • Cut the figs into 1/2 inch slices

  • Toss the figs in 1 tsp of olive oil

  • Evenly place figs on the lined baking pan

  • Bake for 7-10 minutes, until figs have become slightly caramelized
