  • Slice the strawberries. The first step in making this strawberry caprese salad is to slice the strawberries into slices that are about half a centimeter thick.

How to store a strawberry caprese salad

How do you store this strawberry caprese salad? For best results, we recommend waiting to assemble this salad until you are ready to eat it. The moisture from the strawberries, burrata, and honey balsamic dressing may wilt the arugula if all of the ingredients are combined and stored together.

It is okay to assemble the salad a few hours before you plan to eat it, but we do not recommend storing the fully assembled salad for much longer than that. If you do plan to assemble the salad ahead of time, we recommend waiting until you are about to eat the salad to add the dressing.
