Sweet peaches and creamy burrata cheese combine in this peach burrata salad to make the perfect summer salad! You can never go wrong with stone fruits and fresh mozzarella. Fruit and cheese is the perfect combination. There are wine and cheese bites, and we have our charcuterie boards with jams and goat cheeses. Oh, the options are endless. Grilled peaches and fresh cheese are a combination like no other.
It’s the summer season, so bring out the outdoor grill!
Cookouts, reunions, and neighborhood gatherings are in full swing and when you have a recipe like this summery salad, you’ll bring the most popular dish to the yard. Served with some crusty bread (also grilled!), this grilled peach burrata salad is almost too perfect. I love grilling juicy peaches, pineapple, and of course meat dishes when the sun allows.
What is burrata cheese?
Creamy burrata cheese is similar to mozzarella, but with a more buttery flavor and consistency. It’s made from either cow or buffalo milk and splits perfectly when you cut it to reveal the perfectly soft center. Like mozzarella cheese, it is great for a caprese salad or any other main dish salad. It’s great on toast, so naturally I couldn’t resist adding grilled bread to serve with this salad. The creamy ball of deliciousness called burrata is definitely a favorite cheese of mine.
Oh, how I love stone fruit season! Peaches are the perfect sweet addition to all of these simple ingredients:
Deep summer sweetness is in every bite of firm peaches. You know that my kitchen is overflowing with peaches and this peach salad recipe is yet another way to use good peaches to make a good recipe. Whether you’re combining peaches with salty prosciutto, fresh mint, or brown sugar, there’s nothing like seasonal ingredients working all together on one plate, or in one bowl. You’ll need a big bowl to make this beautiful salad. If your family eats the whole salad in one sitting, I won’t blame y’all.
A simple salad is one that has a summer’s bounty of ingredients, like this one!
