We’re getting ready to jet off to Key West for a short trip and I’m trying to plan our Easter dinner for when we get back…without much time to prepare. I wanted to try something new.  I love burrata cheese…that mozzarella ball with a creamy center.  I’m accustomed to having it served as a Caprese salad with sliced heirloom tomatoes and basil.  I found this recipe with a different twist on Burrata from a lifestyle blogger, Athena Calderone of Eyeswoon. The asparagus and snap peas make for a great side or as a salad.

I think this is perfect as a entre salad or as a veggie side for your main dinner.  Enjoy!


Asparagus, Snap Peas, and Burrata Salad photo by Kathy Miller


  • 1 bunch of asparagus, sliced on an angle
  • 1 1/2 cup snap peas, sliced on an angle
  • salt
  • 1 lemon, rind peeled into strips, finely chopped
  • 1 bunch of scallions, thinly sliced
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • drizzle of olive oil
  • champagne vinegar
  • flaky salt
  • fresh ground pepper
  • fresh dill, torn ( or mint, parsley)
  • 8 ounces fresh burrata cheese


  1. Boil water with salt.  Prepare an ice bath with water and ice in a bowl; and a small colander fitted in the bowl.  Once the water is boiling add asparagus and snap peas and boil for 30 seconds.  Immediately ladle them out and into ice bath for about 30 seconds.
  2. Dry the asparagus and snap peas on paper towels.
  3. Pour into a bowl.
  4. Add the sliced onion.
  5. Add a drizzle of olive oil, the lemon juice, a splash of vinegar, some flaky sea salt, and toss.
  6. Add half the lemon slivers, fresh dill or other herbs roughly torn.  Toss and taste.
  7. Add more lemon zest if needed.
  8. To plate, tear apart the ball of burrata and place on a plate or platter.  Add the salad, some extra herbs, lemon zest, flaky salt and fresh black pepper.
  9. Drizzle with olive oil and serve.  Can add toasted crostini with salad.


If serving as a main course salad, each person would get one ball of burrata.  I suggest breaking each in half for a serving as a side salad.

Experiment with your favorite herbs…Also if serving as a side, I split the burrata in half, using 1 full ball per 2 people.

Enjoy! And hope you have a wonderful Easter.  We get back in time to see Parks, our grandson, participating in his second Easter Egg Hunt… The first one…last year…he had no clue what he was supposed to do…but he was cute!
