Why Make This Grilled Peach and Burrata Salad

  • Versatile Recipe. This summer salad can be served using peaches or nectarines. Both are similar in taste and hold up wonderfully in this salad. So many other components are interchangeable as well giving you plenty of flexibility to use ingredients you have on hand.
  • Salad for Entertaining. This peach salad is light, flavorful, and beautiful to serve for the family or when entertaining guests. Much like my beet and feta salad.
  • Great Flavor. This burrata peach salad is one of my husbands favorite summer salads, the sweet, tangy, savory components work so well together.
  • It’s Healthy Too! It’s full of antioxidants, high in vitamin C and minerals and they are great for hydration. The tomatoes more more antioxidants and vitamin A & K. So all around this salad is a power house of health and flavor.

Ingredients Needed

Ingredients in small bowls and plates on a counter for Grilled peach and burrata salad.
  • Peaches. Choose peaches that are not overly ripe, you want them firm still with just a light softness.
  • Burrata. This is a delicious, mild soft cheese that’s closely related to mozzarella cheese. You can find this fresh cheese in the specialty cheese aisle.
  • Mixed Greens. This is the base of the salad, use any green you prefer of course. Baby spinach, a mixture of any tender greens, or arugula all work great.
  • Fresh Herbs. Please use what you can find, afford, and what’s in season. I like to use fresh oregano, dill, and basil. These add a great flavor and freshness to the salad. Parsley and cilantro are other options. It’s to really elevate the vinaigrette so please use what you enjoy.
  • Balsamic Glaze. You can use balsamic vinegar, however I like balsamic glaze best as it’s a bit sweeter and takes the flavor over the top. If you use the vinegar instead just note the flavor won’t be as prominent.
  • Tomatoes. I use cherry tomatoes but any will work. Choose what’s in season.
  • Olive Oil. My favorite for making homemade salad dressings. You can also use avocado oil.
  • Red Wine Vinegar. The unique flavors of this vinegar works great but you can use champagne vinaigrette instead if needed.
  • Pistachios. Added to the top of the salad giving it a nice crunch. You can also use walnuts or almonds instead.

*All other ingredients and measurements are listed below in the recipe card.

Recipe Variations

  • Other Fruits: Swap the peaches for nectarines which are similar to peaches in their appearance, texture, and flavor. Plums and pineapple are other fruits that work well to grill and add to a salad.
  • Experiment With Different Cheeses. Mozzarella makes a great substitute if you want a similar flavor. Or try feta or goat cheese for a different flavor profile.
  • Add a Protein: If you want to turn this into a main dish salad you can add some white beans, garbanzo beans, or chopped rotisserie chicken.

How To Make Grilled Peach Salad with Burrata

Peaches on a white plate brushed with olive oil and then after grilling.

Step One. Slice the peaches or nectarines in half with a sharp knife. Take the pit out and discard. Heat the grill on medium heat. While it’s warming up, brush peaches with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Clean the grill well before adding peaches to avoid sticking.

Step Two. Place the peaches on the grill, directly on the grates and cook without moving for about 2-3 minutes on each side. Use a grill safe spatula to remove them and let them cool on a plate. You can also use a grill pan for similar results. Drizzle honey over the peaches and let them cool.

Step Three. Prepare the herbed lemon vinaigrette. Add the chopped fresh herbs to a small bowl. Be sure to chop a little extra of the herbs to top the salad as a garnish. Add all vinaigrette ingredients into a bowl and whisk well.

Step Four. Slice the cooled peaches and the tomatoes. Place a bed of lettuce in a large serving bowl or plate. Add all the ingredients to the top of the greens. Pour the vinaigrette over the top along with any extra honey drizzle and garnish with fresh herbs. Top with generous drizzle of balsamic glaze. Serve and enjoy.

Recipe Tips

  • Don’t use over ripe peaches or nectarines. You want the fruit to be firm so it keeps its form while grilling.
  • Storing: Place leftovers in an airtight container and store in the fridge for up to 2 days.
  • Ripening peaches. If you end up buying peaches or nectarines that aren’t ripe you can ripen them on the counter at home as this fruit does continue ripen after picking. To speed up the process you can place them in a paper bag for a day or two to ripen up.
  • Make sure to use a clean grill. Not only will you get nicer looking grill marks, it also keeps the peaches from sticking.

Recipe FAQs

What’s the difference between nectarines and peaches?

The different between peaches and nectarines is mainly the skin. Peaches have a more fuzzy texture to their skin and nectarines are more smooth. They are similar in flavor.

Can I use a grill pan instead of a grill?

Yes! It will just take a little longer to grill the peaches on a grill pan, so please adjust the time accordingly.

Can I make this peach summer salad ahead of time?

Yes, you can! Prep everything ahead of time and store separately. Keep the dressing on the side as well. When ready to serve, lay everything out on a platter and top with the grilled peaches and burrata and drizzle with the dressing.
