Enjoy the flavors of summer in a quick and simple grilled peach caprese salad! Grilling the peaches adds a sweet caramelization of the natural sugars and the heirloom tomatoes, burrata cheese, and basil are full of fresh and rich flavors!
1tablespoonneutral oilcanola, avocado, or vegetable
2tablespoonsextra virgin olive oil
salt & pepperfor seasoning
Heat a grill pan or outdoor grill to medium-high heat.
Slice the peaches down the center and around. Gently pull the peaches apart and remove the pit. Slice into ½ inch slices. Brush lightly with oil (avocado, canola, or vegetable).
Grill the peaches 2 to 3 minutes per side. Enough to slightly caramelize them on the grill without making them too soft.
Slice the tomatoes horizontally, about ¼ to ½ inch thick. Arrange the slices of tomato, peach, tomato on a platter. Break the burrata over the top of the tomatoes and peaches. Season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle fresh chopped basil over everything. Drizzle with olive oil and aged balsamic vinegar.
You can use buffalo mozzarella or whole milk mozzarella instead of burrata if you want more uniform or firm slices of cheese.
Olive oil and balsamic vinegar quantities can be adjusted to taste
