Summer Burrata Board

Summer burrata board

To know me means that you know I have never met a charcuterie board I did not like. When we go out to dinner, that’s what I order so I can pick and have little bites of everything. I also love putting together boards when entertaining or just when I don’t feel like cooking and want to feel fancy. This summer burrata board is so refreshing. Scroll down to see how I put it together.

Summer Burrata Board

Light burrata pairs well with delicious summer flavors like fresh peaches, berries, mint or basil. I whipped up this board one Friday night for cocktail hour for Rick and I.

This summer burrata board make the perfect dish to bring to your summer parties whether as an appetizer or side dish. Let your guests make their own small plates or you can also choose to slice the fruit into  smaller pieces and cut the burrata into chunks so that people can assemble as a little salad. Drizzle with a little olive oil and balsamic glaze.

Things that I love to pair with burrata:

  • melon
  • berries
  • peaches or other stone fruit
  • salty proscuitto
  • tomatoes
  • mint, basil or arugula
  • crackers or crostini

And here it is as a salad. I topped with some chopped pecans for a little crunch.

It’s very similar to this peach arugula salad which is also a favorite of mine. Click here for recipe.

This serves really well with my rose elderflower spritz or lilac lemonade prosecco.

Reuben Salad

This Reuben Salad has all the classic flavors of the traditional sandwich minus the carbs and grease that you would normally get from the pub or diner. It’s super easy to prep for lunch or a light dinner and the kids ate it too! This is a great option if you’re following low carb or keto. Scroll down for my recipe for my Reuben Salad below.

Reuben Salad

Ingredients:

  • Rye bread torn into chunks
  • 1-2 Tbsp melted butter
  • 1-2 heads of romaine, torn
  • 1/2 lb of deli corned beef sliced into strips.
  • 1/2 lb of deli swiss cheese sliced into strips.
  • 1 cup of sauerkraut or cole slaw (I do cole slaw since I don’t like sauerkraut)
  • Russian dressing

Directions:

  1. First make your rye bread croutons. Line a baking sheet with foil. Place your rye bread chunks on the baking sheet and toss with melted butter. Put in the oven until golden brown.
  2. While the croutons are baking, prepare your salad. I have found that if you’re serving a group of people, you can make a board and place each ingredient in separate bowls so that people can make their own individual salads. Or just combine all ingredients in one large bowl and toss.
  3. Top with croutons right before serving.

If you’re looking for great salad bowls these are my favorite! They’re awesome for pasta too!
