Just because the temps are dropping doesn’t mean salad season is coming to an end. In fact, I welcome fall which brings with it a desire for heartier, more satisfying salads.

In honor of the fall season, I decided to turn my go-to arugula salad into something a bit more special by topping it with roasted root vegetables and creamy burrata cheese. Whenever you roast vegetables in a hot oven the natural sugars caramelize resulting in a sweet, tender end result.

Burrata Cheese

While you’ve probably seen burrata on restaurant menus before, you may be curious about what exactly makes burrata, burrata. Similar to mozzarella, burrata is a semi-soft Italian cheese. What makes burrata extra special is that it’s formed into a pouch and then filled with soft, stringy curd and cream.

The sweet roasted vegetables, spicy arugula and crunchy, toasted almonds are the ideal complement to the buttery, creamy burrata cheese. Sprinkle with a little salt and basil and you’re done.

Your fork is waiting.
