This stunning Burrata Antipasto Salad with prosciutto, olives, lentils and tomatoes is the perfect appetiser, side salad or quick and easy mid week meal when you don’t want to spend to spend a lot of time in the kitchen. This colourful, Mediterranean inspired dish is ready in a flash, and it’s an absolute crowd-pleaser.
Tip: Take the Burrata out of the fridge 1-2 hours prior to serving to bring to room temperature. This will ensure the Stracciatella filling will ooze out when cut at the table.
