Warm Pear & Burrata Salad

Warm Pear & Burrata Salad

We love a good salad for lunch, but we don’t always have time to prepare a salad that gets us excited. And ordering from a delivery app costs an arm and a leg, especially when you can make your own at home for a fraction of the cost. This Warm pear & burrata salad is restaurant quality and comes together in less than 10 minutes.

5 min
5 min
Pears Halves packed in water no sugar added


  • 1 Del Monte 398 ml canned pears
  • 30 ml (2 tbsp) butter
  • 15 ml (1 tbsp) lemon juice
  • 30 ml (2 tbsp) olive oil
  • 5 ml (1 tsp) honey
  • 500-750 ml (2-3 cups) baby arugula
  • ½ ball of Burrata
  • 2 handfuls of pecan halves
  • Salt & black pepper to taste


  1. Drain liquid from canned pears and use paper towel to absorb as much liquid from the pears as possible. Cut pears into cubes. 
  2. Add butter to a saucepan over medium heat. Allow butter to melt and start to brown. Add pears and saute for a couple minutes, ensuring they brown on all sides. 
  3. In the meantime, whisk together lemon juice, olive oil, honey, a pinch of salt and a bit of cracked black pepper at the bottom of a bowl until emulsified. Add arugula and mix, coating evenly. Transfer arugula to a salad plate. Top with Burrata. Top with roasted pears and drizzle with remaining brown butter. 
  4. Garnish with pecans and a sprinkle of Maldon salt. Enjoy!
