This has been a very hot summer here in Southern California. I made this for dinner one night when I really didn’t want to cook and I just craved something refreshing. Peaches this time of year are usually pretty spot on, so I took advantage of the delicious peach season and made this yummy salad for myself.
Note: this served one as a main course. You can double it and make two salads. Serve with a glass of wine and you’ve got a really light dinner. Or you can leave it as is and it can be a side dish.
½ of a big heirloom tomato, sliced in half moons
½ to 1 whole peach, depending on size, sliced in half moons
4-5 pieces of prosciutto
1 ball buratta
Balsamic glaze for drizzling
Fresh basil, minced, for topping
You can really just chop everything up and eat it like that, but I liked the look of the circle.
Just alternate the tomato, peach, and prosciutto around a plate until the circle is complete. Place the burrata in the middle and drizzle the balsamic glaze and sprinkle the fresh basil over the top.
Eat the fruits with the buratta and feel like you are in heaven for a few moments.
