Grilled Peach, Tomato & Burrata Salad with Balsamic Flavour Pearls
Now that is Summer on a plate! Tomatoes and stone fruit are at their best and any time is a good time to enjoy the decadence of a creamy Burrata. A dish that’s colourful, fresh and quick to prepare. Balsamic Flavour Pearls add a tang that’s just right. We enjoyed this with a crusty baguette and some good company in the warm afternoon sun.
What you’ll need…
- Tomatoes – we used large vine ripened as well as an heirloom mix for a bit of variety (room temperature)
- Peach – 1 or 2 is plenty
- Burrata – you should be able to get one at your local deli or super market
- Pine nuts – toasted in the oven until golden
- Olive oil
- Sea salt & Pepper
- Balsamic Flavour Pearls
Lets get started…
Select your serving platter and put it aside ready. The rest is pretty quick to complete.
Turn on your BBQ or grill plate and get it nice and hot. You will need to cut your peaches now. Either halve them and twist to remove the seed or simply slice the cheeks off as you would a mango. Cut in to the desired size. Lightly oil the cut side and place it firmly on to the grill.
You want to get some nice dark grill marks here so don’t rush it!
Place the grill marked peaches on to your serving platter. Add your Burrata in the centre. Simply slice your larger tomatoes and halve the medium ones. Scatter the littlies. I like to season the tomatoes with a little Sea Salt and Pepper here.
You can simply lay a piece of glad wrap over at this stage and finish the dish when you’re ready to eat. Don’t put it in the fridge, room temperature is best with this dish.
Ready to serve
To finish the dish just add your fresh basil leaves and a drizzle of olive oil. Scatter with toasted pine nuts and lastly top with Balsamic Flavour Pearls.
Best served with good company and a glass of something delicious…
