Grilled Peach and Burrata Salad

The colors and flavors of this recipe make it a showstopper. It was inspired by a similar salad I had poolside while on a business trip to California. When I got home, I couldn’t get this delicacy out of my mind, so I created this Grilled Peach and Burrata Salad so I could have it whenever I wanted.

I’ve never met anyone who hasn’t loved this recipe.

Preparing the Peaches

Peaches can be tricky to cut with that pesky pit in the middle. Use a 3″ Gourmet Paring Knife to cut around the fruit and twist the two sides to release them. Use the tip of the knife to cut around the pit to release it and then slice the halves.

For this recipe, keep the skin on the peaches. It adds color and texture to the dish.

Once sliced, the peaches are placed on a grill pan or sauté pan, cut side down, to cook for a few minutes. They will get heated through but will remain firm.

Making the Salad

Once the peaches are prepared place them in a serving dish and top with slices of burrata. Cutco’s Traditional Cheese Knife is the perfect knife for cutting all types of cheese, including soft cheese like burrata.

You could also cut the burrata into bite-size pieces for this salad if you’d like.

To halve the cherry tomatoes, Cutco’s Santoku-Style Cheese Knife is my choice. It’s the perfect size for the task.

Add the cherry tomatoes to the peaches and cheese, and sprinkle with chopped basil or small basil leaves. I also like to finish it with a drizzle of balsamic glaze.

The sweetness of the grilled peaches and tomatoes paired with the creamy burrata, aromatic basil and tangy balsamic drizzle allow for the perfect bite. If you like crusty Italian bread, or any bread for that matter, grill a few slices with olive oil and use it to soak up the excess juices.

This is a recipe your taste buds are sure to remember.
