Top and tail the fennel bulb and finely slice using a mandolin or peeler. Rinse under running water.
Arrange the Parma ham slices over the salad. Drain the burrata and tear into chunky pieces over the salad.
Notes from the cook
- If you like mozzarella or ricotta you will love burrata, a rich delicacy from Puglia and possibly the best cheese you will ever taste!
Burrata is made from stretched mozzarella which is turned into a pocket and then filled with stracciatella (meaning ‘little rags’), a mixture of fresh cream and shredded mozzarella.
It has a very short shelf life, so if you can’t find fresh burrata use buffalo mozzarella instead.
- Serve this quick and easy salad as a lovely light lunch or starter.
