How to make Arugula Artichoke & Burrata Salad?

For this salad, you will only need 2 ingredients for the dressing, plus 5 additional main ingredients to turn this salad into a sensational one!

Ingredients needed for this tasty salad:

  • ARUGULA – choose a package of already cleaned fresh arugula to make this a quick salad. If you cannot find it already clean, just rinse and spin out the excess water before placing it into the bowl.
  • ARTICHOKES HEARTS – choose a jar of marinated artichoke hearts. They are loaded with flavor and you will need a least 1 cup of marinated artichokes. Be sure to allow them to drain a little before topping the salad.
  • BURRATA CHEESE – you will need 1 container, which contains either one large or 2 smaller balls, (8 ounces).
  • KALAMATA OLIVES – choose pitted ones and about 1/4 cup is enough and not overpowering.
  • EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL – choose a good quality olive oil for the maximum flavor.
  • BALSAMIC VINEGAR – choose a good brand of balsamic for a sweet, savory flavor. Balsamic offers the perfect sweetness and balances the peppery arugula.
  • SEASONINGS – we used a good pinch of Himalayan salt, and some fresh cracked black pepper on top, at the end.
  • BASIL – freshly cut ribbons of fresh basil are added on top to add additional flavor to this salad and it works perfectly as a garnish on top.
  • BALSAMIC GLAZE – this sweet-tasting balsamic glaze is thick and adds the final touch! Drizzle over this entire salad before serving.
