Mozzarella, Asparagus & Prosciutto Salad

Nothing screams summer more then a fresh salad. The Asparagus adds a touch of elegant crunch plus the salty prosciutto and sweet mozzarella is a match made in the heavens of my palate.

Great to be served if you want to impress your guests!


  • 20 asparagus spears, woody ends cut off
  • 15 slices of prosciutto
  • 1 fresh burrata or buffalo mozzarella, about 200 gr
  • A handful of fresh rocket and mixed green

For the dressing:

  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • The juice of one lemon
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • A splash of balsamic vinegar, optional
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • In a frying pan bring to a boil about a cm of water and add the asparagus in a single layer for 3 minutes until tender. Remove from pan and put into ice water for a couple of minutes, drain and set aside.
  • Whisk all the dressing ingredients and set aside.
  • In a serving platter start by layering the greens and rocket, arrange the asparagus, place the burrata in the middle and arrange the prosciutto all around.
  • Drizzle with dressing and serve!

Buon Appetito!!
