This colourful 🍅 Burrata Tomato Peach Salad is summer on a plate. It features the best of summer produce: bright cherry tomatoes, juicy peaches, and garden-fresh basil 🌿 with a side of creamy burrata cheese. It’s all topped with a flavourful fig and balsamic glaze that’s perfection. If you can’t get your hands on the fig glaze that I used by “Acropolis Organics”, you can use apricot or fig jam instead. ALSO: I would highly recommend serving this with some fresh bread or crostini.

Why You’ll Love Burrata Tomato Peach Salad

This salad is so simple to throw together, but so fresh and flavorful! It looks sensational: super elegant and sophisticated but big on flavours, colours and textures. This dish is a party pleaser and the best way to use up those garden-fresh tomatoes and bumper crop of summer 🍑 peaches.

How to Prepare Burrata Tomato Peach Salad

💦 First, wash and dry the tomatoes and peaches.
🍑 Next, remove the core from the peaches and cut each half into slices. I arrange them on opposite sides of my plate but you can also get creative and change up the placement.
🍅 Now, using a sharp knife, slice the heirloom tomatoes and arrange them on the platter. Cut the cherry tomatoes in half and fill in the spots.
👩‍🍳 You can leave the burrata cheese whole or break it open and place it on one end of the plate.
🫒 Finally, drizzle on a touch of olive oil, salt to taste, and balsamic glaze. Garnish with basil and enjoy!

Nonna’s Tip

In addition to the balsamic glaze, I also love to add a fig glaze as well. The balsamic fig glaze I used is from Acropolis Organics but you can use any jam or glaze you like instead. The sweetness is amazing in this recipe.

Variations and Substitutions for Burrata Tomato Peach Salad

  1. The heirloom 🍅 tomato and peach combo is perfection, but use any tomato combination you have or even crisp nectarines.
  2. You can absolutely make this dish with any balsamic glaze or jam you have on hand. The balsamic fig glaze I used is from Acropolis Organics.
  3. Alternatively, use Buffalo mozzarella or even bocconcini cheese instead of burrata. 
  4. I love the look of a wide platter for an elegant serving, but you could toss this salad together in a salad bowl 🥗 and serve it that way.

Common Questions

What type of cheese can i use instead of burrata?

You can definitely make this Burrata Tomato Peach Salad with any soft white cheese, such as Buffalo mozzarella or even bocconcini instead of burrata. I also think crumbled feta or goat cheese would be delicious sprinkled on top.

what can i use if i don’t have balsamic glaze?

If you don’t have bottled balsamic glaze, you can certainly drizzle balsamic vinegar over the salad OR why not make your own glaze? It’s really simple! Just pour some balsamic vinegar into a small pot, bring it up to a boil and then simmer until it’s reduced and syrupy. Let it cool, and you’re good to go.

can i use regular tomatoes instead of heirlooms?

Absolutely! I love using heirloom tomatoes because of the variety in colour and shape, and they make for a stunning presentation. But you can certainly use whatever tomatoes you have on hand or love eating, just make sure they’re ripe and juicy.

what can i use instead of peaches?

Ripe and juicy peaches absolutely sing in this Burrata Tomato Peach Salad, but a crisp nectarine would be delicious, too!
