I hope you enjoy this Burrata Sandwich as much as I do! Now let’s get cooking!

To Make This Delightful Burrata Sandwich, You Will Need:

(Full measurements listed below)

Bread: Italian bread or ciabatta. I use a $1 Italian loaf from my local Walmart bakery
Pesto mayo: I use the store-bought and mix them with lemon juice and salt.
Arugula and baby spinach: The baby spinach adds a peppery and slightly bitter taste to the sandwich, balancing out the sweetness of the tomato.
Heirloom tomato: choose the most fragrant tomatoes you can find; trust me, the flavor will be divine
Olive oil: look for an olive oil extra virgin if you can.
Prosciutto and salami: for an authentic Italian taste. But you can use any type of cured meat, such as ham or bacon.
Burrata cheese: be generous with the burrata – it’s the main player in the sandwich! In this recipe, I use 2 whole burrata
Fresh black pepper flaky sea salt: to enhance the flavor, of course!
Lemon juice: adds the zing for the pesto mayo.

How To Make Burrata Sandwich?

Make the pesto mayo by mixing mayo with pesto, then add lemon juice and a small pinch of salt to taste.

Slice the bread in half. You can also toast the bread lightly if desired.

On each side of the bread, spread a generous layer of the prepared pesto mayo.

Assemble your sandwich: a layer of baby spinach and arugula, then a layer of salami, and prosciutto. Next, the burrata cheese and tomato slices. Finally, top the sandwich with the remaining piece of bread.

Enjoy your freshly made Burrata Sandwich!
