How to make the burrata salad with oranges and herbs
This vibrant salad, just like many others, needs compiling of the ingredients and dressing it up with the special orange-pistachio dressing.
How to prepare the dressing for the salad?
Start by grating the orange for some orange zest. Then mix the orange zest, mustard, and a bit of the vinegar until it all becomes one. Finally, stir in the remaining vinegar, olive oil, and honey and mix again. Drop in the olives and the salt. The dressing is ready.
Now getting back to the salad itself. Use a sharp knife to slice the orange finely. Remove the pips but do not discard the juice that will accumulate on your cutting board. Add that to the dressing. Also, finely slice the onion to preserve the same geometrical shapes for the salad.
Then, spread the salad leaves all over a platter or a large serving plate. Gently and evenly top the onion rings and the orange slices. Drizzle half of the dressing, mix with a salad spoon or use your hands. Watch the video below:
Finally, lay pieces of burrata all over the surface and drizzle the remaining dressing on top. Sprinkle chopped pistachios before serving the fragrant and vibrant burrata salad with oranges and herbs.
