Honey Balsamic Peach & Burrata Salad

I'm welcoming you to my new series called, "We Have Food at Home" because we should learn to use up the food in our fridges before grabbing more groceries or eating out. As a content creator I do get overwhelmed sometimes trying to figure out what recipes to make for you guys, so I thought to myself, why not start making recipes on a whim that way the recipe is naturally made and I use food that's sitting in my fridge, instead of going out and buying things just to make one or two recipes. This way you also get to see how I come up with recipes for myself that are still balanced and nutrient-dense.


This third recipe of this series is my Honey Balsamic Peach and Burrata Salad and now I understand the hype for combining peaches and burrata. I grabbed burrata last week at Trader Joe's because it's officially summer and I can't walk out of the grocery store without grabbing a tub of it. But, I knew it was going to expire before I got to use it, so I knew it had to be part of today's lunch. Luckily, I had peaches so I wanted to give this combo a go. My goal was to make a sweet and savory kind of recipe, so that's why I combined burrata with red onion for the savory-ness, and honey and peach for the sweetness.


When I tell you, I felt like I was sitting in a 5 star restaurant while eating this... it's a salad that a rooftop restaurant in Boston would charge $30 for because they can. This is a salad you can make for approximately $5-6 a serving at the comfort of your own home instead. Best part is, it's beyond easy to make and quick enough to make during a work or school break during the weekday. Imagine you just came out of a meeting and you make yourself this... it's going to make your summer day indoors even better. You can also whip this up for yourself on a weekend or double/triple to make for you and friends.


I purposely didn't chop up the veggies to give it more of a "fancy" energy, but you can choose to do so if you'd like. Also, if you don't have peaches but are really dying to make this salad, strawberries would also pair well with the rest of the flavors in this recipe. I can't wait for you to try it!
