Tomato Peach Burrata Salad Recipe

There's nothing better than a dish filled with colorful, fresh, seasonal vegetables. Oh wait — top that dish with cheese, and it immediately gets an upgrade. This delicious tomato peach burrata salad by Kristen Carli, recipe developer, private practice registered dietitian, and owner of Camelback Nutrition & Wellness takes those elements to another level. Sweet grape tomatoes paired with juicy peaches and crunchy corn are a perfect match for the rich and creamy texture of a giant ball of burrata. While there's definitely a gourmet feeling to this vibrant salad, the recipe is no nonsense and comes together in just eight minutes. 

If you don't have those exact vegetables at hand, Carli enthusiastically remarks that "all the summer veggies" are welcome in this salad. Depending on your appetite, you can serve it alone, with a chunk of crusty bread, or with meat or fish. Take advantage of fresh summer produce, and transform it into an easy dish brimming with flavor. Once you get a taste, you'll never be at loss for what to do with your haul from the farmer's market.

Gather the ingredients to prepare this delicious tomato peach burrata salad

This recipe is quick and easy to make. Start with some grape tomatoes, which have a firm exterior and a plump interior that makes them well suited for salads. Next, it's time to use up those juicy summer peaches. Though they're often eaten alone or enjoyed in sweet recipes, including them in a salad adds contrast and a sweet touch. Canned sweet corn is used for crunch and some extra sweetness. If you have plenty of corn on the cob, you can also slice the kernels off to use in the salad. 

The dressing is nice and simple since the fresh vegetables are already packed with flavor. Carli mixes olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt, and pepper to season the salad with a sweet tang. Finally, the centerpiece of this salad is a ball of burrata. If you're unfamiliar with burrata, you'll notice its resemblance to mozzarella, although they are made following different processes. In case you can't get your hands on burrata, Carli says, "I would use mozzarella balls." However, if you can find the real deal, you'll love the buttery rich texture contained within a ball of burrata. Remove it from the fridge right away so it has time to come to room temperature for maximum flavor.

Go ahead and bulk up this salad with extra herbs and vegetables if you want. Carli says, "I love basil, mint, cucumber, tomatoes, all the summer veggies!"

In a large bowl, add the tomatoes, peaches, and corn

Start off by cutting the grape tomatoes in half, dicing the peaches, and properly rinsing and draining the corn to retain its fresh flavor. Then, you're going to grab a large mixing bowl, and add in the halved grape tomatoes, the diced peaches, and the canned corn. If you're planning on including other vegetables in this fresh salad such as cucumbers of fresh herbs, go ahead and toss them in on top.

Stir the dressing into the salad ingredients

Next, it's time to prepare the dressing for your salad. If you prefer to make the dressing separately in a jar, go ahead and premix the ingredients. Otherwise, add the olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt, and pepper directly to the mixing bowl that has all the salad ingredients in it. Using a spatula or a wooden spoon, stir the contents of the salad thoroughly so that they combine evenly and absorb the dressing. Then, move on to the next step.

Top the salad with the ball of burrata

Now comes the most exciting part of the entire recipe (besides digging in). Finally, you're going to transfer the salad to a serving bowl. Top the fresh fruits and vegetables with a ball of burrata. For maximum effect, follow Carli's method, and cut a slit through the burrata to allow the creamy filling to spill out over the fresh fruit and veggies. If you're using mozzarella balls, you can distribute them over the top of the salad or mix them in to absorb some of the dressing. The presentation will look seriously picture-perfect.

Serve, and enjoy

A quick eight minutes later, and you're ready to serve up this tasty tomato peach burrata salad. You'll definitely enjoy this salad solo, thanks to the combination of fresh crunchy sweet fruit and vegetables paired with creamy burrata cheese. The delicious medley is also excellent as a topping for a crusty piece of bread.

This flavorful salad is the perfect side dish to a simply prepared protein. Carli remarks, "I love to serve this with roasted chicken or salmon." And if you end up with any extras, (However, chances are, you won't!) then Carli recommends storing the leftovers "in an airtight container in the fridge for up to one day."
