Summer – the season of delicious salads. For me, salad season is year round. I love salads. I love that they can complete a meal or BE a meal. I love the flexibility and endless possibilities they offer.

This asparagus ribbon salad is the crown jewel of all salads. She’s a classy gal. She’s not only beautiful but she has depth and character. She is certainly is a head-turner. A long list of ingredients isn’t needed when that list includes asparagus, beets and burrata.

If you’re not familiar with burrata, you need to head on over to your grocery list and add it on to the items you want to purchase. It’s solid fresh mozzarella on the outside, but when you break it open, you find a mixture of mozzarella and cream. This gives it a soft texture that’s perfect for this salad everything. The creamy center of the burrata mixes with the asparagus ribbons and the beets.

You hardly need dressing but I whipped up one of my favorites – a combination of vinegar, olive oil (of course), dijon and honey. It’s the perfect combo of sweet and tangy. If you don’t feel like messing with a vinaigrette (but it is really easy), this salad would be perfectly tasty with a splash of vinegar and oil and then a sprinkle of salt and pepper.

Ingredients:

  • 8 thick stalks of asparagus, rinsed
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon white balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon dijon mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon honey
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 small beet, roasted, peeled and sliced or cut into chunks

  2. In a small measuring cup, mix together olive oil, balsamic vinegar, mustard, and honey. Taste and add desired salt and pepper. Mix until combined and then pour over asparagus ribbons and toss to coat.
  3. Add beets and burrata to salad. If desired, drizzle with a little more olive oil and sprinkle with additional salt and pepper.
  4. Enjoy immediately.

Note: You can easily triple, quadruple, etc. this salad to accommodate for larger groups.
