Tomato peach burrata salad

Summertime dinnertime – it doesn’t get better than sitting on the back deck with a delicious, light dinner, a glass of cold white wine and a good book. Tomato season is almost upon us, and I implore you to give this potentially wacky combination a try. Initially, the combo of tomato, peach and burrata seemed a little too far out (even though tomatoes are technically a fruit). But as much as I hate to say it, I was wrong. Except I don’t really hate it, because this is light, refreshing and the perfect “celebrate the best of summer” dinner. This serves one generously, probably two in reality (I had leftovers).

You’ll need:

  • 2-3 medium tomatoes, sliced
  • 2 large peaches, sliced
  • 1 ball burrata cheese, sliced
  • ½ cup fresh basil, torn or chiffonade
  • Good balsamic vinegar (flavored is fine)
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Get cooking (or not, in this case):

  1. Alternate the tomato and peach slices on a plate.
  2. Nestle in burrata (though it’s very wet, so slide may be a more appropriate term.)
  3. Toss the basil on top, drizzle with balsamic and season with salt and pepper to taste.
