Summer Burrata Salad

Give me ALL the burrata cheese. But really though, it’s SOOO good. During summer, I am a fan favorite of the light, no-cook and flavorful meals. Bring on this summer salad with burrata cheese, arugula, prosciutto, grilled local peaches and balsamic glaze. It’s such a great side dish or light main dish for all the cheese lovers out there.

Ingredients

2 small peaches

1 ball of burrata cheese

3 slices prosciutto

3 cups fresh arugula

1 tablespoon olive oil

2 tablespoons lemon juice

salt/pepper

1 tablespoon balsamic glaze

Fresh basil, chopped (optional)

Heat a grill or grill pan over medium heat. Slice the peaches and grill for 1-2 minutes. The peaches should soft at the surface, but remain firm.

Whisk the olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Add to the arugula and mix together. Place the arugula mixture in a bowl.

Tear the prosciutto into smaller pieces. Add the prosciutto to the arugula. Add the grilled peaches and burrata cheese. Drizzle with the balsamic glaze, garnish with fresh basil and top with addition salt and pepper. Enjoy!
