All the wonderfully fresh flavors of summer are right here on a platter with this Juicy Peach, Tomato and Burrata Salad.
When peaches and tomatoes are at the height of the season this simple dish makes the most of them. There’s a tasty champagne vinaigrette to drizzle over top… and don’t forget lots of fresh basil and toasted pine nuts to garnish. I used a couple handfuls of baby spinach as a base layer to showcase the beautiful peaches and tomatoes but you could leave it out or use some baby arugula if you like. This is a flexible salad… simply cut up as many peaches and tomatoes as you want and top with as much burrata as desired. Couldn’t be much easier than that!
