Top fresh this fresh veggie and peach salad with creamy burrata for the perfect summer salad
When it comes to summer produce I think or corn, blueberries, tomatoes, zucchini and fresh, ripe, juicy peaches. Peaches are such a versatile ingredient and they work well in both sweet and savory dishes.
I love to have a ripe, juicy peach with creamy, cool burrata. This peach burrata salad is the perfect combination of all of my favorite parts of summer.
Peach + Burrata
The idea for this salad came from the peach and burrata salad at sweetgreen. I love that they give you a full ball of burrata on that salad and serve it with a big hunk of fresh bread. I like to serve this peach salad with my homemade no knead focaccia recipe.

what is burrata?
Burrata is a creamy Italian cheese that is similar to mozzarella. The exterior is smooth like a mozzarella ball, but when you get into it the interior is a mixture or unpulled mozzarella and cream that is rich and delicious
Yellow peaches or White Peaches
Yellow peaches have that classic peach flavor that is a mix of sweet and slightly tart while white peaches tend to be much sweeter and not tart at all. I prefer to use yellow peaches for this salad because I like that they are slightly tart.

This is salad is best enjoyed immediately because once the burrata balls are burst they should be eaten. If you want to prepare this salad ahead of time you can assemble all of the veggies up to 24 hours in advance and then place the burrata on top just before serving.
