Isle of Wight Tomato & Burrata Salad, with Pistachio Pesto Dressing


Such a classic salad made using the fabulous IOW tomatoes and beautiful Burrata. I decided to make a pesto with pistachio nuts, which if you haven’t tried then you really should. It’s sweet and nutty and blends into the most vibrant colour. Amazing with pasta but also good loosened with extra virgin olive oil as a salad dressing. It will keep in the fridge for about 3 days, so it’s worth making a large batch.
