Recipe :: Peach Burrata Caprese


When posting recipes I'll often make something a week or two before putting it on my blog, giving me time to edit the photos and tweak the recipe.  However when I made this one on Monday night I knew I just couldn't wait to share it...it's just that good.

In the summer it seems like I simply just can't eat enough peaches, and after seeing a Bon App├ętit image with different variations on the standard caprese I decided to give one a shot.  Enter two juicy yellow peaches, a super indulgent burrata cheese, some fresh basil from my garden, a drizzle of olive oil, and a few slices of fresh baguette you've got yourself the perfect dish for a relaxing dinner al fresco.  Seriously, is there anything better than a simple meal made with fresh, high quality ingredients?  And I have to say this one absolutely knocked it out of the park.  It was all Ryan and I could talk about on Monday evening and I've already made the same dish served over fresh arugula for a couple mid-week lunches.  Enjoy!

Peach Burrata Caprese
Serves 2

INGREDIENTS
2 firm but ripe yellow peaches
Burrata, sliced in half {save the other half for lunch!}
Fresh basil
Extra virgin olive oil
Kosher salt
Cracked black pepper
*Optional baguette

INSTRUCTIONS
Start by halving and pitting the peaches.  Using a sharp knife, cut peaches in circular vertical slices.  Arrange on plates.

Divide halved burrata in two and spoon onto the center of the peaches.  Drizzle with extra virgin olive oil, sprinkle with salt and cracked black pepper, and serve with fresh basil and slices of baguette.  Savor the taste of summer, for it will be gone before we know it!
