Fresh Mozzarella & Prosciutto Salad

Fresh Mozzarella & Prosciutto Salad

The recipe I got inspiration from actually uses Burrata cheese but fresh Mozzarella is quite similar so works perfect. I couldn’t really find Burrata around me, I’m sure it’s available though. And as far as I know, Burrata is actually Mozzarella but with a creamy centre. Or I might be wrong. 🙂

So a few months ago I had this beautiful salad with Burrata cheese, fresh pesto and some other goodies and since then I’ve been recreating it at home. And we all love it, well I mean my husband and me. 🙂

How could I’ve missed adding prosciutto to my salads before? Makes such a difference. I know, it also adds calories, but it’s totally worth it. To make this absolute beauty I used rocket, prosciutto, fresh mozzarella and homemade pesto. I also finished the salad with a splash of one of my favorite hot sauces (Cholula). The acidity in the sauce was just what this salad needed. And no, it wasn’t spicy, I only added a few drops which were mixed with the pesto. 🙂

Also, when serving I suggest to throw some pine nuts – add crunchiness and nuttiness in a lovely way.

Although this looks all green and light, believe me, it’s quite filling. The last time I made this salad for dinner, more as a starter, but it really filled us up so we didn’t really have a main.
