Quinoa Salad with Burrata

Quinoa Salad with Burrata


8 serves
40 minutes


A healthy, veg-heavy salad is a great option for a weeknight or a side salad at a gathering. Let’s take it up a notch by adding Burrata! The Burrata cream and fresh mozzarella shreds mix in beautifully with the grains, to give the salad a creamy “dressing.”

Cut the Burrata open at the table up the wow factor if you are having guests!

Note: The salad can be refrigerated and stored for a few days, as long as dressing and Burrata are only added just prior to serve.

150g x 2 Burrata

1 Rinse the quinoa and cook according to the packet instructions. Once cooked, fluff with a fork and allow to cool.

4 Mix all of the dressing ingredients together in a small bowl.
5 Remove the Burrata from the fridge 30 minutes prior to serve.
