You haven’t lived until you have tasted this cheese. Now combine it with the lovely beets and you have a salad fit for a king.


  • 4 red beets, roasted and peeled
  • 4 golden beets, roasted and peeled
  • 3 tbsp. olive oil
  • 2 tsp. lime juice
  • 1 tsp. honey
  • 1 tsp. minced fresh basil
  • pinch of salt and pepper
  • 2 cups mixed baby greens
  • 2 pouches of Burrata cheese
  • olive oil for garnish
  • basil flowers for garnish

Thinly slice the roasted beets using a fine paring knife or a mandolin.

On 4 pretty plates. arrange the sliced beets, alternating the colours in a circular manner. In a narrow bowl, whisk together vigorously the balsamic vinegar and lime juice until emulsified. Add the honey, basil, salt and pepper to taste.

Place the baby greens in a bowl, drizzle with some of the dressing and toss to coat.

Top each arrangement of the beets with a mound of greens. Slice each pouch of cheese in half and place one on each salad. Drizzle with additional dots of balsamic dressing and garnish with a basil flower (optional).

What did I say? That cheese is to die for. Yes, it is more expensive to buy but you should do this for a special occasion or, use as often as you wish.
