How to Make Peach and Burrata Salad
Let’s make this summer peach salad!
- Make dressing for peach salad. Add olive oil, white balsamic vinegar, dijon mustard, sea salt, and black pepper to small jar. Shake until emulsified.
- Slice peaches. Slice peaches right before you assemble the salad as they do brown. It’s totally safe, just not as vibrant and pretty.
PRO TIP: Squeeze some lemon juice over peach slices to prevent browning.
- Assemble lettuce peach salad. Layer baby arugula and baby romaine in a salad bowl or on plates. Drizzle with dressing and top with sliced peaches, burrata cheese, and chopped almonds.
- Finish salad. Add freshly cracked pepper and flaky sea salt to taste.
Frequently Asked Questions
Can you use a different cheese?
Yes, while it won’t be a peaches and burrata salad anymore, it would also be delicious with goat cheese or feta cheese.
Can you use a different nut?
Yes, you can absolutely use roasted pecans, walnuts, or pine nuts if that’s what you have and that’s what you prefer.
This fresh peach salad recipe is best served immediately. Because the baby arugula and baby romaine are so delicate, they will start to wilt when they are dressed.
Here are a few things you can prep ahead so this salad comes together really quickly:
- Make dressing and store in jar. If you make it a few days in advance, store it in the refrigerator and let it come to room temperature before serving.
- Chop almonds and store in an airtight container
- Slice peaches a few hours in advance and sprinkle with lemon juice to prevent browning
What to Serve with Summer Peach Salad
