Peach Tomato Burrata Salad with Snow Peas and Kale

With their juicy and sweet flesh, peaches are more than just a delightful summer fruit. They are packed with essential nutrients and offer numerous health benefits.

Rich in vitamins A and C, peaches support a strong immune system, promote healthy skin, and help fight harmful free radicals. Additionally, the high fiber content of peaches aids in digestion and helps maintain a healthy weight. Including peaches in your diet can improve cardiovascular health and reduce the risk of chronic diseases like cancer.

Snow peas, with their delicate and crisp texture, are a delightful addition to stir-fries and offer various health benefits. These edible podded peas are an excellent dietary fiber source, aiding digestion and promoting a healthy gut.

Packed with vitamins A, C, and K and minerals like iron and potassium, snow peas contribute to overall immune function, bone health, and healthy blood pressure levels.

The peaches I recommend for this recipe:

  • Yellow Peaches
  • Donut Peaches
  • White Peaches
  • Belle of Georiga Peaches
  • Nectaries (aka peaches without fuzz)

Burrata Salad with Peaches, Snow Peas, and Kale

Originating from the Puglia region in Italy, burrata cheese is a true delicacy that has gained popularity worldwide.

This cheese dates back to the early 20th century and was initially created to use excess mozzarella curds. The name “burrata” translates to “buttery” in Italian, perfectly describing the texture and taste of this cheese.

Burrata cheese is made by hand, combining mozzarella and cream. The outer layer is a solid mozzarella pouch, while the inside is filled with a mixture of mozzarella scraps and fresh cream. The result is a luscious, creamy center that oozes out when the cheese is cut open. Making burrata requires skill and precision, and this craftsmanship contributes to its exquisite taste and luxurious texture.

I used one large ball of burrata for this recipe, but you can use more if you’d like!

Here are all the ingredients you need to make the salad:

  • 2 large peaches, chopped
  • 2 cups cherry tomatoes, cut in half
  • Burrata cheese
  • 3 cups Tuscan kale, chopped
  • 2 cups snow peas
  • 1 cup celery, chopped
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • Cracked black pepper
  • Sea salt
  • 4 tablespoons pesto

One of the Best Summer Salads

The Peach Tomato Burrata Salad with Snow Peas and Kale celebrates summer’s finest flavors and is a testament to the incredible health benefits of fresh, seasonal produce.

Each ingredient contributes uniquely to this delightful salad, from the luscious peaches to the creamy burrata cheese and crunchy snow peas. So, please take advantage of the bountiful summer harvest, and treat yourself to this vibrant and nourishing dish that is as pleasing to the palate as it is to the body.
