This is a quick overview of the ingredients you’ll need for this Burrata Salad Recipe. Specific measurements and full recipe instructions are in the printable recipe card below.
- Fresh Tomatoes – you will need large tomatoes that are good slicing tomatoes will be the best for your base, try beefsteak tomatoes or heirloom tomatoes. And some cherry or grape tomatoes for topping.
- Fresh Peaches – you want ripe peaches that are juicy, but not too mushy.
- Burrata Cheese – this is a soft cheese that is similar to mozzarella cheesy, with a creamy center. You should be able to find it at the grocery store.
- Salt and Black Pepper – to taste
- Olive Oil – for drizzling
- Balsamic Glaze – You can buy a bottle at most grocery stores (I’ve found it at Trader Joe’s, Target, and Walmart) or make a homemade balsamic vinegar reduction.
- Fresh Basil – cut basil leaves into strips and add a generous helping, to your hearts content on top for a fresh herb flavor.
- Bread – grab a loaf of Baguette bread or other crusty bread, and slice it up. I like to toast mine in the oven, or on the grill.
How to make Peach and Burrata Salad?
- This is one of the easiest recipes out there. You will arrange the sliced tomatoes on a plate, or large platter.
- Then do a layer of sliced peaches and sprinkle halved cherry tomatoes on top.
- Add the burrata cheese ball to the middle of the salad. And sprinkle the top with salt and pepper.
- Drizzle the top of the salad with a little olive oil, and balsamic glaze. Then sprinkle with strips of fresh basil over the top. Serve with toasted bread and cut into the outer shell of the burrata ball and enjoy!
Tips and Tricks:
- Choose ripe tomatoes and sweet peaches, that are not too overly ripe and squishy.
- Open the package of burrata and carefully drain out the liquid from the container. Then let the burrata sit on a plate for about 10 minutes, then use it on your dish. It is best enjoyed at room temperature.
- For a little smokiness you can grill the peaches on an outdoor grill. Cut the peaches in halves, then brush the peaches with olive oil and grill them for about 4 minutes on each side. Let them cool slightly, then slice them for your burrata peach salad.
- Instead of peaches you can try substituting other stone fruits, like nectarines or plums.
- If you can’t find burrata or don’t want to use it, you can substitute with fresh mozzarella cheese. I like to slice it and arrange it randomly on top of the tomatoes and peaches.
- Instead of serving drizzle with oil, and balsamic glaze you could try making a simple balsamic vinaigrette dressing made with 3 TBS of oil, 1 TBS of balsamic vinegar, 1/2 TBS of honey, and salt and pepper to taste.
- For an extra crunch, add some toasted pine nuts, pistachios, or crunchy almonds on top.

If you would like to prepare it ahead of time you can prepare the separate parts, by slicing the tomatoes, and peaches and storing them separately in airtight containers in the fridge. You can even pre-measure out the other ingredients, although a lot of them are to taste.
Assemble the dish just before serving to maintain its freshness.
