Peach & Burrata Salad

This salad is a take on the classic caprese with fresh peaches substituted for the normal tomatoes. The sweetness of the peaches is a flavor contrast to the creamy burrata and the tangy balsamic vinaigrette.

INGREDIENTS

  • pea shoots
  • burrata
  • peaches
  • basil
  • lemon vinaigrette
  • aged balsamic
  • basil blossoms

KITCHEN TOOLS

  • chef’s knife or serrated knife
  • cutting board
