Fresh fruit, radishes, ramps and burrata cheese add a flavorful punch to this plate of greens! Perfect for patriotic holiday celebrations and summer lunches!
I’ve been working on making salads more interesting lately. And a great way to find inspiration for topping options is a stroll through the Farmers Market.
I found some beautiful fresh burrata cheese at one of the local farm stands, and I just knew it needed to go on top of a big pile of greens for lunch.
I also picked up some ramps and radishes, which added a nice bit of onion-y, peppery flavor.
For sweetness, I sprinkled on some fresh blueberries and cherries, and a sprinkle of sunflower seeds for crunch.
This combination of flavors worked out beautifully. And the combination of colors really made this salad even more enjoyable. The red, white & blue combo would make this a perfect addition to a Memorial Day or 4th of July meal. Yum!
