Beet And Burrata Salad With Fried Bread



This Beet and Burrata Salad is everything you need. Juicy beets and oranges, a creamy and luscious burrata scoop, peppery arugula, a quick vinaigrette, and crispy fried bread. SO MUCH YES!


For the Dressing:
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • a few taps of garlic powder
  • a big handful of chopped chives
  • salt and pepper to taste

(OR, a bottle of your favorite champagne dressing, lemon dressing, or similar)

For the Salad:

  • one 8-ounce package cooked beets 
  • 2 oranges
  • a handful of arugula
  • 8 ounces burrata (two 4-ounce rounds)
  • 46 slices white Tuscan-style or sourdough bread 


  1. Shake dressing ingredients in a jar.
  2. Press excess juice out of the beets with a paper towel; cut them into chunks. Cut the peel off the orange; cut into chunks. Toss beets and oranges with dressing. Add arugula if you want.
  3. Heat a generous swizzle of olive oil over medium high heat. Add bread; fry on each side until golden brown and crispy.
  4. Divide into bowls, serving each bowl with a chunk of creamy burrata and a piece (or three) of grilled bread. OMG.
