Peach Basil Burrata Salad

I’m not quite sure I’ve ever been so obsessed with an appetizer before this Burrata Salad.

What is Burrata?

Burrata is a relatively new cheese on the scene (like it kind of took off in the last two years or so) and I am not mad about it. For those of you living under a rock, burrata cheese is fresh mozzarella filled with cream. It is glorious and creamy and addicting and I love it almost more than my kids. A lot of people go the caprese route when it comes to Burrata because it’s a classic, but after taking a quick stroll through a nearby farmer’s market this weekend and buying all the summer produce I could hold, the wheels in my mind started turning (as they tend to do) and this is what I came up with and ate for dinner on Sunday.

Fresh, and summery corn, basil, and peach salad generously spooned over a ball of burrata cheese. Actually two balls of burrata cheese (but I only ate one).

Peach and basil is a great combination, as is corn and basil, so I put two and two together and called it a day. Grab a few chips or crackers and that’s that.

This recipe is really quite straightforward: cut the corn off the cob, dice the peaches, chop the basil, make the salad and spoon it over the fresh cheese. Not rocket science.

But the most important thing to note about this recipe is to use the freshest, sweetest corn and peaches you can find. Since there are so few ingredients in this recipe, it is so important that what you use is good. Shouldn’t be too hard to find or too expensive either, since peaches and corn are in season and produce in season typically runs cheaper than the produce that isn’t.

The burrata cheese I used is from Trader Joe’s because all their cheese is moderately priced and I live close to several. In one of TJ’s containers, you get two medium sized balls instead of just one large one, which I like for an appetizer. But, I’m not *that* picky when push comes to shove. I’d eat it either way.

Anyways, save, pin, print and make this immediately. It is so so worth it! Recipe card at the bottom of the post.

Have a great day, friends!

    This sounds perfect for a summer treat. I didn’t see that you cook the corn. Am I correct in assuming that the corn is raw?

    I needed a quick appetizer to take to a gathering a couple of weeks ago and remembered this. I had pinned it. It was a huge hit!! Everyone asked for the recipe! It is so delicious and so quick to put together.

    This looks absolutely refreshing and delicious. I’m hoping to try this with all my fresh corn very soon. I just love your recipes, they’re always delicious.

    This looks like my version of heaven. Corn, peaches and my favorite Italian cheese, burrata all together? Yes this is my heaven. Would love to eat this during a girls weekend while drinking some lovely wine!
