Peach Burrata Salad Ingredients
When it comes to a great salad I think there are a few key factors: Texture, color, and flavor. The ingredients of this peach burrata salad offer all of those things. Crunchy almonds. Creamy burrata. Fresh and colorful blueberries and peaches. Yum!
These ingredients just pop with flavor! Enjoy all the tasty freshness and beautiful colors in your bowl!
- Greens: I love the flavor and texture of the mixed greens.
- Burrata: this is served fresh and at room temperature.
- Peaches: these are best if they are on the ripe side.
- Almonds: toasted and slivered almonds that are unsalted.
- Blueberries: fresh are best!
- Mint Leaves: tear these up into chunky pieces, you will love the flavor this adds.
Dressing for Peach Burrata Salad
- Olive Oil: extra virgin olive oil adds more flavoring
- Mint: chopped fine
- Salt and Pepper
- Balsamic Vinegar: drizzled over top
This is one of those recipes that the dressing is a huge part of the overall flavor. So while you can use a balsamic vinaigrette that is already made, I highly recommend taking a few minutes to mix up your own. Taste as you go and adjust the flavors as you wish.
What is burrata?
Burrata is a fresh Italian cow milk cheese made from mozzarella and cream. The outer shell is similar to a pillow that is firm mozzarella that contains cream and curds.
Basically it is the leftovers from making mozzarella, the cream and curds are wrapped in more cheese for the creamiest, tastiest concoction ever.
Burrata is served fresh and at room temperature. It is served with a sprinkle of salt and a drizzle of olive oil. Slicing burrata is like layers of creamy cheesy goodness. The fresher the burrata is, the softer is will be. Adding it to the salad is delicious!
How to cut peaches
You can’t go wrong with cutting peaches for this delicious salad. I know that everyone cuts their fruit a little differently. So I am going to share my method.
However, keep in mind, cut to your preference: How thick do you want each slice for your salad?
To Cut a Peach:
- Use a Knife: Find the natural indent of the peach.
- Halve: Start at the stem and cut the peach in half.
- Twist: Gently twist each side of the peach in opposite directions splitting the peach in two halves.
- Pit: Remove the pit
- Slice: continue to cut your peach into thin slices.
Substitutions and Variations
There are a few ways that you can make this salad. My original recipe is the one I love and prefer. And it covers all the bases for a great salad.
However, if you can’t find an ingredient, or want to mix things up, you can try a few different substitutions and variations that work best for you and your family.
- Peaches: Fresh and ripe are best but if you need to make it during the off season of peaches, canned peaches or frozen peaches will be a good substitute. Or try a different stone fruit.
- Fruit: Strawberries are fun to add to this or even raspberries or blackberries.
- Burrata: If you can’t find a burrata or don’t prefer it you can substitute it for fresh mozzarella. A creamy cheese is best, rather than a hard cheese.
- Greens: Spring mix is the type of lettuce bag I used. You are welcome to try spinach or romaine lettuce too. Both are great with this salad.
- Nuts: I am all about a little crunching with my salad. Cashews, pistachios, pecans or walnuts are really a hit. Just remember if you use a salted nut, adjust your dressing to account for the extra flavor.
