At the soft center of burrata is stracciatella, a fresh cheese made from shreds of stretched curd, and cream. The cheese's richness complements the juicy tang of citrus and tarragon in this salad.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Using a sharp knife, slice both ends off oranges and remove the peels and white pith; discard. Cut the oranges into 1/4-inch-thick slices.

  • Whisk pomegranate juice, honey, lime juice, vinegar, shallot, tarragon, mustard, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Slowly whisk in oil. Reserve 3 tablespoons of the dressing. Toss lettuce with the remaining dressing in the bowl.

  • Arrange the lettuce and orange slices on a platter. Tear burrata and scatter over the top along with pomegranate arils. Drizzle with the reserved 3 tablespoons dressing and sprinkle with hazelnuts and tarragon leaves, if desired.


Cara Cara oranges have a minimal amount of pith that makes these medium-size navel oranges ideal to suprême or segment. They have a sweeter, more complex flavor than a standard navel and a more crimson color, closer to a red grapefruit or blood orange. Find them at your grocery store in early winter.
