Summer Burrata Salad & Apple Cider Shallot Vinaigrette



We felt like it was time for a salad today. Foraging through the fridge (you never know what you’ll find after a busy weekend), we were delighted to find some bits and bobs that we could work with. Fresh summer fruit 🙌🏼and some arugula and burrata from a frenzied farmer’s market stop on Saturday morning. Which btw, doesn’t Saturday seem so very far away? We are loving our fresh mint in the garden too, and a sprinkle of that all over gave this salad a little extra pizazz to perk up our Monday.


We arranged our Summer Burrata Salad on a platter and dressed it with our favorite dressing of the moment — Apple Cider Vinegar & Shallot Vinaigrette which we found on @healthyseasonal. This vinaigrette will be your BFF this summer, as it goes with everything from salads to meat to pastas. We’ll even share the recipe with you — you know where to find us! xoxo D&K
