Ingredients for Burrata Salad
This recipe only calls for 10 ingredients, and a few are pantry staples that you probably already have. For this salad, you will need: burrata cheese, arugula or your favorite mixed greens, thinly sliced prosciutto, fresh mint and basil leaves, peaches, vanilla extract, lemon juice, unsalted butter, and coconut sugar.
If you don’t have coconut sugar on hand, you can substitute it for brown sugar.
All of these ingredients should be easily found at your local grocery store. Make sure you have ripe peaches for this recipe, but not so ripe that they are mushy.
How to make Burrata Salad With Caramelized Peaches
First you’ll want to prepare the ingredients and make the caramelized peaches. Slice the peaches and combine them with sugar, lemon juice, 1/4 tsp of salt, and vanilla extract in a medium sized mixing bowl.
Then, melt the butter in a heavy bottomed pan like a cast iron. Add the peaches and cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally until they begin to turn golden brown.
While the peaches cook, begin assembling the salad. Arrange the arugula, burrata, prosciutto, basil leaves, and mint on a large plate or platter. Season it with salt and pepper, then drizzle with olive oil.
Once the peaches have finished cooking, allow them to cool for 5-10 minutes and then add them to the burrata salad.
You can eat this salad as is or with your favorite protein like blackened shrimp, chicken, or fish. I served mine with a pan seared or grilled chicken breast.
Some questions you might have about this burrata salad:
What’s the difference between fresh mozzarella and burrata? Fresh mozzarella is a fresh, semi-soft cheese made from cow’s milk or buffalo’s milk. It has a milky flavor and elastic texture. It’s also completely solid when you slice it. Burrata has an outer layer of mozzarella, with an inner layer of soft mozzarella scraps and fresh cream. When cut open, the inside sort of oozes out. Yummm.
Where can I find burrata cheese? Most grocery stores have burrata, and sometimes if you’re lucky you’ll find the black truffle burrata which is my absolute favorite! If you can’t find burrata cheese, you can substitute it for mozzarella cheese.
Or you can just whip up another batch of caramelized peaches and eat them with whipped cream for dessert….no one’s here to judge!
