Grilled Peach Fruit Salad with Burrata and Lime Basil Vinaigrette is a delicious combo of grilled peach, cherries, and fresh blueberries with fresh burrata. Top it with Lime Basil Vinaigrette for the perfect Summer salad.
Grilled Peach Fruit Salad
You haven’t had the ultimate feast of summer peaches until you’ve tried a Grilled Peach! Add in some fresh buratta and you can call it ‘dinner’, I certainly won’t judge! In this house…we love all things peachy keen, including this Bourbon Peach Pie and Coconut Crumble Peach Custard Pie. You can never have enough pie during peach season.
Grilled Peach Fruit Salad with Burrata and Lime Basil Vinaigrette makes the most out of the early summer fruits while also welcoming mid summer fruits. It’s a simple salad that is BIG on flavour! Simply arrange your favourite grilled fruits around a ball of creamy fresh burrata and dinner is done. I grilled a few of the first peaches that I bought because they are still quite firm and easy to slice in half. They soften right up on the barbecue, with the heat releasing all the sugars hidden within the stone fruit. Add some pitted and halved cherries, some blueberries and whatever other fruits you have.
What is Burrata and Why do I Need It?
Burrata is fresh Italian cheese made from either cow or buffalo milk. It consists of soft shell filled with a creamy centre. Once you cut into it, the creamy centre flows over the salad and mingles with the fruit. The result is incredibly delicious!
You might think that the burrata is not necessary for a great fruit salad (and with the lime vinaigrette it just may be) but if you pick one up, you won’t be sorry you did. The addition of the fresh creamy cheese really elevates this salad to another level. We actually ate this salad as a main dish one evening. YOLO.
How To Grill Peaches and Other Stone Fruit
The best grilling peaches/stone fruit have an intense aroma (sniff test!) but are still quite firm and easy to slice in half.
To grill, simply pre-heat your barbecue to high and give it a good scrub. Brush some olive oil on the cut side of the peach and place the same edge on the hot grill. Grill until you can see the peach visibly soften, then remove carefully. They can be slippery!
Lime Basil Vinaigrette
Lime and basil? I was skeptical at first but this vinaigrette is packed FULL of flavour and it’s crazy easy to whip up. Just blitz it all in a blender and season to your taste. This stunning dressing really ties the whole dish together.
