If you’re like me and are still reluctant to let go of summer, this Heirloom Tomato & Peach Burrata Salad is perfect to help you reminisce about the warm weather and delicious summer treats while easing into fall. With summer peaches and fall heirloom tomatoes, this dish is the best of both worlds! Snatch up the last peaches of the summer season at the store for this salad. This recipe contains the freshest ingredients paired with fresh herbs, bright and flavorful EVOO and creamy, oozy burrata. This filling side-dish makes for a colorful main attraction at the dinner table!
The grocery list.
- Heirloom tomatoes – Are you excited as I am about heirloom tomatoes finally being in season??
- Peaches – Peaches may be hard to find now that they’re not in season. Nectarines are a good replacement (though they’re also no longer in season, but either will work).
- Burrata – This cheese is messy but so worth it! It has an outside of solid mozzarella and is filled with soft stracciatella, which will mix in well with your salad.
- Olive oil – This salad is a medley of strong flavors, so it doesn’t need much in terms of a dressing. Olive oil and flaky salt is the only thing I topped it with.
- Fresh basil – Basil grows best in the summer, so if you grow your own, enjoy it while it lasts! Personally, I’ve been adding basil from my garden to absolutely everything lately because I know I’ll miss it this winter (though I’ll probably still be able to find fresh basil at the store).
- Flaky salt – Salt enhances the flavor of your dish. Flaky salt does the same and because of its texture it melts into the dish.
This recipe is super straightforward. Toss your diced heirloom tomatoes and peaches into a large serving bowl. I cut mine into medium-large sized pieces. Tear the burrata over the top of the mixture and place the pieces into the tomato and peach salad. Drizzle olive oil over the dish and top with fresh basil, torn up a bit. Sprinkle your Heirloom Tomato & Peach Burrata Salad with a pinch of flaky salt and serve. That’s it!
Different ways to enjoy this recipe.
Obviously, this dish tastes amazing on its own, but I have some recommendations on ways to enjoy it that I wanted to share.
Burrata and heirloom tomatoes are a legendary combo. Along with olive oil and salt, I sometimes like to drizzle a bit of balsamic vinegar over them, which would be a great addition to this salad. This salad already boasts a lot of big flavors, so olive oil and flaky salt are my first choice for dressing this salad. If you do decide to add balsamic vinegar, only drizzle a little because it’s very strong and you don’t want to overpower this other flavors in this Heirloom Tomato & Peach Burrata Salad.
You’ve probably had bruschetta, which usually involves burrata and tomato on toast. Slice up some baguette or your choice of crusty bread, top it with some olive oil and pop it in the oven or on the Traeger grill until it’s browned and crispy. When your bread is out of the oven sprinkle it with some flaky salt and have it with your salad, or if you’re a genius scoop some salad on top of your warm crispy bread and eat it like toast!
You’ll find that this salad produces a lot of delicious juices. Tomatoes and peaches are, after all, very juicy fruits. In order to prevent wasting that juicy goodness, use some fresh bread to soak them up!
The last suggestion I have for eating this salad is to find your favorite pita or tortilla chips and scoop it! This may be controversial and I have not yet tested this theory, but I think the sweet peaches and creamy burrata would taste amazing with the salty chips.
I don’t think there is any singular way to enjoy something, as long as you’re creative! If you discover more ways to enjoy this Heirloom Tomato & Peach Burrata Salad, let me know and I’ll try it!
