A simple, easy salad with big, bold flavors!
There is a local restaurant in Indianapolis by the name of Harry and Izzy’s. It’s a local favorite and it happens to serve one of our all-time favorite salads, Burrata and Brussels Sprouts Salad. It’s so good we had to see if we could devise a similar recipe so our non-Hoosier pals could experience it too. And let’s be honest… so we could enjoy it ourselves any time a craving hits!
Our Burrata Cheese and Brussels Sprouts Salad is a warm salad that is quite filling and can be served as lunch or dinner. Burrata is a buttery cheese made from a mix of mozzarella and cream. It has a thin shell that contains a soft, velvety center. You can find it in the specialty cheese section at your grocery store. This elegant cheese is the perfect complement to the mix of Brussels sprouts, radish slices, pepitas, onion jam, vinaigrette, and toasted baguette slices. The textures and flavors are restaurant-quality, yet this salad requires minimal ingredients and takes only a few minutes to assemble.
If you cook with Brussels sprouts often, you may be having doubts at just how quick this salad can come together. It’s true that Brussels sprouts take a bit of time and effort to prepare. And while they’re always worth the effort, it would be nice to skip the cleaning, trimming, and cutting. Well, now you can with Ocean Mist Farms Season & Steam SuperShred Superfood® packages!
We’re not over-exaggerating when we say that Ocean Mist Farms Season & Steam Brussels Sprouts bags are life-changing for busy moms and home cooks. They take what is typically a 30-minute process and turn it into a 3-minute snap! The Brussels sprouts are thoroughly washed and packaged in a recyclable steam bag. Tear open the bag, season to your liking, close the zip-top, and pop them in the microwave for 2-4 minutes. That’s all it takes to get deliciously steamed Brussels sprouts!
Season & Steam packages from Ocean Mist Farms are the only steam bags on the market that allow you to pre-season your vegetable, reseal, and steam in the same bag. We’re convinced this bag is made with a little bit of magic because it doesn’t simply microwave the Brussels sprouts, it gently steams them. You get the same delicious flavor and texture you would if you steamed them using a traditional steaming method. To a home cook, that’s as magical as it gets!
Now that steaming Brussels sprouts is officially a breeze, it means our Burrata Cheese and Brussels Sprouts Salad can be thrown together in a matter of minutes. And that means we can enjoy our favorite salad as often as we want!
Ocean Mist Farms Season & Steam bags come in several varieties including three Brussel sprouts items (SuperShreds SuperFood®, Quick Cook Sprouts®, and whole Brussels Sprouts), sweet baby broccoli, and artichokes. Give them a try and see for yourself just how easy and convenient they are. We bet you’ll become a super fan too!
