Grilled peaches with burrata, prosciutto, pesto, pistachios, mint, & honey, also known as summer on a plate! Summer is in full swing and on days when it is too hot to cook but you are still craving something fresh and delicious, summer salads like this one are the way to go! Burrata cheese pairs wonderfully with sweet grilled peaches and prosciutto, making the most incredible summery combination of flavors.
Burrata is a soft cheese originating from a small town in Puglia called Andria. Fresh mozzarella outer shell is filled with creamy stracciatella-or mozzarella shreds with cream-which results in a silky, creamy, delicious fresh cheese. Because of its creamy texture and delicate taste, it is perfect for pairing with fresh fruits in addition to savory options.
This dish can be served as a salad with all of the ingredients mixed together, or on a serving platter or charcuterie board so diners can create their own perfect bite.
