Peach Burrata Salad

Peach Burrata Salad

I love a good salad. I think by now, you know this. If I had a choice between a top of the line salad and a top of the line chocolate cake, I would really, really struggle to decide which I would demolish first. I would struggle especially hard if this were the salad in question. Though I’m all about the seasonal eating, I’ll compromise here and use out-of-season peaches to compliment all of this green goodness. Pro-tip: using some high-quality balsamic is very, very worth it here. Your peaches will thank you. (I get mine from Old Town Oil. My mom swears by this kind from Williams-Sonoma.)

Look. I'm not a fruit in salad person. But something about the way the crisp peaches marry with the smooth burrata and then get cut by that arugula is just *Italian chef kisses fingers*.

Makes: 6 servings, as a side

Peach Burrata Salad

Prep time:

Cook time:

Ingredients:
  • 8 oz of arugula
  • 4 oz of baby watercress
  • 1 bulb worth of fennel leaves (dill also tastes great here!)
  • 1 bunch of basil
  • 5 large peaches, pitted and sliced thinly
  • 8 oz of burrata cheese
  • 1/4 cup of olive oil
  • 1/3 cup of balsamic vinegar (it's worth it to splurge on the good stuff)
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions:
  1. Find a nice big salad plate (this guy doesn't present as well in a bowl), and a medium bowl. Get yourself ready.
  2. In the medium bowl, toss the arugula, baby watercress, fennel leaves, and basil. Set aside.
  3. Alright, alright. Grab those peaches and arrange them on your salad platter. Now add the greens on top of the peaches, and then tear the burrata into chunks and space it out evenly on the platter.
  4. Step back to admire your handiwork, then drizzle the olive oil and vinegar over top.
  5. Add salt and pepper to taste, then toss lightly (that cheese is fragile!). Serve immediately, lest the vinegar ruin the greens.
