Can’t stop won’t stop with the odes to Spring.
This gorgeous Strawberry Burrata Salad is absolutely everything I adore about this season. ♡
Tender, leafy, fresh spring greens…perfectly ripe, juicy strawberries…chilled, creamy burrata cheese…crisp red onions and crunchy nuts of your choice…all drizzled and tossed with the most irresistible basil vinaigrette?! We’re talking about an all-star lineup of seasonal spring favorites here. And after having made this salad a half dozen times this month — especially after discovering and getting a little too hooked on the fresh burrata stand at our neighborhood market — I can vouch that it perfectly hits the spot every time.
So if you’re interested in giving your strawberry salad a lift this year, bring home some fresh produce, blend up a quick batch of this 5-minute basil vinaigrette, and this gorgeous salad will be ready to serve in no time.
Strawberry Salad Ingredients:
To make this Strawberry Burrata Salad, we will need:
- Fresh Strawberries: sliced or quartered
- Burrata Cheese: the most heavenly soft buffalo milk cheese, made with mozzarella and cream
- if you can’t find burrata at your store, feel free to sub in a ball of fresh traditional mozzarella or feta cheese
- Red Onion: thinly sliced (or you could sub in shallots)
- Nuts: I used toasted sliced almonds, but any of your favorite kinds of chopped nuts will do
- Greens: I used a spring greens mix here, but any of your favorite greens will do
- Basil Vinaigrette: see below!

This 5-Minute Basil Vinaigrette is easy to whip up in the blender or food processors, and is made with lots of fresh basil, olive oil, garlic, red wine vinegar, salt and pepper. You can check out the full recipe for it here — it’s the best!
How To Make Strawberry Burrata Salad:
To make this Strawberry Burrata Salad, simply combine all of your ingredients in a large salad bowl, toss, and serve! You’re welcome to toss the salad ahead of time with the vinaigrette, or drizzle it on top of each serving once the salads have been plated. I also like to sprinkle on an extra few cracks of black pepper, for good measure. 🙂
