Peach Burrata Salad
PEACH BURRATA SALAD
I bet you’re thinking, “Why is she posting a peach salad in October?”
According to Alexa, peach season is from July to October so technically I have two weeks to squeeze this recipe in.
I was also just in Utah where people were bringing over baskets of peaches to us and they have them everywhere in our stores here.
Finally, this salad is so good I couldn’t wait until next summer to share it! There are plenty of winter fruit substitutions you can use if you can’t get your hands on peaches so you can make this all year long.
If peaches are out of season, here are some winter fruits you could substitute. However, tomatoes are sweet on their own so you could leave out the fruit.
Pears, oranges, apples, kiwis, pomegranates.
WHAT IS BURRATA CHEESE?
Burrata is a soft cow’s milk cheese that is made from mozzarella and cream. Unlike traditional mozzarella it has a soft creamy inside. Burrata means “buttery” in Italian and is best served at room temperature.
WHAT IS A BALSAMIC GLAZE?
Balsamic glaze is balsamic vinegar cooked down to a thick syrup and sometimes sweetened with sugar or syrup.
WHERE DO I BUY BURRATA?
Every grocery store sells Burrata in the refrigerated cheese section. The Burrata cheese is stored in water.
