Grilled Mango and Burrata Salad with Pistachios

Grilling season is here and we’re getting ready for the 4th of July.

What’s on my menu?

Grilled Mango, of course!

Grilling Mango is so easy – take a look at the video below to see how fast you can grill this sweet fruit. Once grilled, the mango is perfectly caramelized making it extra delicious to add to your dish.

I’m making a Grilled Mango and Burrata Salad with Pistachios for this holiday grilling weekend.

The sweet mango pairs so nicely with the creamy burrata and the crunch from the pistachios gives the salad such a fantastic texture. You will also get your greens in by adding some arugula and fresh mint. The tanginess from the balsamic glaze pairs so incredibly well with the sweet mango and delicate burrata. This is a hearty, well-balanced salad perfect as a side, appetizer, or first course.

Just check out the colors – yellow, green, white – it’s so beautiful, too.

Your guests, family, and friends will be wowed.

Recipe type: Salad
Cuisine: American
Serves: 4
Ingredients
  • 1 mango, peeled and sliced in big slices for easier grilling
  • 6 cups arugula
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil + extra for drizzling
  • 2 Tbsp balsamic glaze + extra for drizzling
  • 4 ounces burrata, sliced
  • 4 Tbsp mint, chopped
  • ¼ cup pistachios, shelled
  • Salt and pepper to taste
Instructions
  1. Preheat the grill or grill pan. After the mango is peeled, slice it as close to the pit as possible on the 2 main sides. Slice the other sides to get as much of the fruit. The bigger the slices, the easier it is for grilling.
  2. Over medium heat on the grill, place the cut-sides down and grill until charred for about 3 minutes. Flip it and grill the other side for 3 more minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes.
  3. Toss the arugula, olive oil, balsamic glaze, salt, and pepper together. Mix.
  4. Dice the mango into bite-sized pieces.
  5. Add the mango, burrata, mint, and pistachios over the arugula. Drizzle with olive oil and balsamic glaze. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  6. Serve.
  7. *Pro-Tip: If you don’t have a grill, this salad tastes just as amazing with fresh, uncooked mango! You can enjoy it either way.
