Cooking with Vi

Arugula with Charred Tomato and Stracciatella


This is my blog with my favorite recipes.

I often cook this salad for guests and on holidays. The salad has a rich taste, and the composition of the salad can be changed a little. In the end, I will write about how you can diversify the taste of the salad.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 1/2 Red onion
  • 10 Charred tomatoes
  • 100g Arugula
  • 200g Stracciatella
  • 2 tablespoons Balsamic glaze
  • 4 teaspoons Olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon Wine vinegar
  • 20g Pine nuts
  • 2 tablespoons Lemon juice
  • Salt
  • Black pepper

How to make it

First, make dressing

In a small bowl, whisk together olive oil, lemon juice, wine vinegar, salt, and pepper to taste.

Then, prepare aragula and tomatoes

I am using pre-washed baby arugula. If you have unwashed arugula, it should be carefully washed with water and dried.

  1. Put the arugula on a large flat plate. Cut the tomatoes in half. Slice half of the red onion as thin as possible.
  2. Place a charred tomato on the arugula.
  3. Add the sliced red onion.
  4. Season with dressing.
  5. Spoon the stracciatella on the tomatoes.
  6. Sprinkle with pine nuts.
  7. Top with balsamic sauce.


  1. Pine nuts can be replaced with pumpkin seeds.
  2. Stracciatella cheese can also be substituted for burrata.
  3. Sometimes I mix arugula with spinach.
  4. Add thinly sliced pears or mangoes. It will add a sweet taste to the salad.
