Pomegranate, Fig, and Burrata Salad

julipmade84 This is the perfect summer to fall transition salad.  It combines some of my favorite summer elements (burrata and arugula) and some of my favorite pre-fall elements (figs and pomegranate).  It is relatively simple, but packs some flavor especially from the spiciness of the arugula.  
julipmade82 Ingredients:
  • arugula
  • 8 figs, sliced in quarters
  • burrata cheese, sliced
  • 1/2 pomegranate, seeded and reserve juice for dressing
  • olive oil, dash
  • red wine vinegar, dash
  • salt and pepper for tasting
  1. Lightly brown figs under the broiler for a few minutes.  You can serve them raw too, but I like the caramelizing effect this has.  
  2. Mix the figs, arugula, pomegranate seeds, and burrata in a large bowl.
  3. Splash a dash of olive oil, red wine vinegar, and the leftover pomegranate juice on top of the salad.
  4. Salt and pepper for taste and toss.
 What are you favorite summer to fall transition meals?

  1. One of my favorites is braised chicken. I love braising legs using the late season dry farmed tomatoes, lots of onions, red wine, then tossing in some olives at the end. It's so south of France in summer, but having something bubbling away on the oven feels distinctly Fall!

  2. Yum...love me some figs. So scrumptious!

  3. I always manage to come to your blog when I'm starved!! This looks yummy...I am a huge fan of burrata so this is a must try! xo

  4. This is perfection on a plate! You always make me so hungry :) xoxo

  5. i have got to hop on this fig train - i'm seeing them everywhere and they sound so delicious!

  6. Yumm! this looks fantastic...have alread had some nice fall figs (LOVE them!)

  10. We're having friends over next Thursday and I'm TOTALLY making this salad! :) Thanks for sharing the recipe... it's exactly what I was looking for

  11. this looks so amazing right now! i may just try to replicate it! :)

  12. So, burrata is one of my favorite cheeses. When I was living in Florence, I ate it by the fistful (hence the extreme weight gain while there). I haven't had it quite as good since I left, but you've left me with my mouth watering now. I MUST have this salad.
