Three-Pea Salad with Burrata and Dukkah

Serves 4


    Three-Pea Salad with Burrata and Dukkah

    Peas are a beautiful, bright reminder of summer, so this salad is the perfect side dish for a summer barbecue, or a light, fresh lunch. Peas are naturally sweet, so they’re a favourite with kids. The nuttiness of the dukkah adds flavour to the simple and subtle dressing, while the burrata provides depth, creaminess, and an element of decadence suitable for a lazy summer day.


    Summertime switches

    Use a mixture of cherry and heirloom tomatoes combined with arugula for an equally delicious alternative to the summery peas and sprouts.
