Italian burrata parma ham salad (with low FODMAP option)

I am still in an Italian food phase since my holiday in Italy. Today I have a recipe for you for an amazing Italian burrata parma ham salad.

I have already told you before how I love that Italians can make the most brilliant dishes with only a few (high quality) ingredients. This salad is an example of this.

I will mention immediately that burrata is not low FODMAP because it contains lactose. Burrata is a combination of mozzarella and cream and therefore it contains more lactose than mozzarella.

I take a lactase pill to be able to eat burrata, but to make this recipe low FODMAP you can also use a good buffalo mozzarella. Mozzarella is low FODMAP up to 60 g per portion.

If you have to eat entirely lactose-free you can also use a lactose-free mozzarella. In several European countries, they have lactose-free mozzarella from the brand MinusL.

Burrata has quite a strong flavour and therefore I found it important not to add too many other ingredients to this salad.

I combined the burrata with parma ham (in my eyes the best combination with burrata), tomato, olives and a simple dressing of balsamic crème (a thicker version of balsamic vinegar) and some olive oil.

With the right ingredients you don’t need much for a great dish. That also counts for this Italian burrata parma ham salad, also low FODMAP.


  • Rocket lettuce or mixed lettuce
  • 1 burrata (or 1 buffalo mozzarella), 120 g*
  • 100 g parma ham
  • 2 roma tomatoes
  • 50 g black olives
  • A splash of olive oil
  • Balsamic crème (or normal balsamic vinegar)
  • Pepper and salt


  1. Divide the rocket lettuce over two plates.
  2. Cut the burrata in two and put it in the middle of the plates.
  3. Cut the parma ham into pieces and the tomatoes into wedges.
  4. Divide the parma ham, tomato and the black olives over the salad.
  5. Sprinkle some olive oil and balsamic crème over the lettuce and flavour with pepper and salt.


*Burrata is not tested and probably contains quite a high amount of lactose. If you are intolerant to lactose, you can use mozzarella instead. This is a lot lower in lactose and low FODMAP.
