Warm Asparagus and Burrata Cheese Salad

This elegant and healthy salad, enhanced with a warm vinaigrette, is the perfect accompaniment to a main dish or on its own as a lunch entrée. You can also serve with a crusty bread (and we won’t say no to dipping it in the dressing!).

Serves 4


½ cup Otamot Essential Sauce

2 tbsp red wine vinegar

2 tbsp shallot, minced

1 tsp thyme leaves

½ cup extra virgin olive oil

8 oz burrata cheese

25-30 fresh asparagus spears

Kosher salt


  1. Whisk Otamot Essential Sauce, vinegar and shallot in a small pot until combined.
  2. While whisking, slowly stream in olive oil until completely emulsified. Season with kosher salt to taste.
  3. Gently warm vinaigrette on the stove top over low heat.
  4. Add thyme leaves and whisk to incorporate. Keep warm.
  5. Meanwhile, gently steam the asparagus spears and heat the burrata cheese until slightly melted.
  6. Place the asparagus spears and burrata cheese on a platter and serve with the warm vinaigrette.
