It’s always hard to resist burrata when it’s on the menu—it’s a luxurious, pillowy cheese made from mozzarella and cream. My favorite way to have burrata is with peaches and pesto—the sweetness from the peaches and the fresh basil scream “summertime.” Aside from a few pantry items like olive oil and red wine vinegar, all of these ingredients can be found at a farmer’s market during the summer. Pick up a bottle of wine or some sparkling water on the way home and enjoy this easy, no-cook salad outside, savoring the warm weather.

For the dressing

1 ounce fresh basil
1 small garlic clove, chopped
¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 small shallot, chopped
Pinch of red pepper flakes
Fine sea salt

 

4 ripe peaches, halved and pitted
2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
2 cups packed baby arugula
1 seedless cucumber, spiralized with Blade D, noodles trimmed
1 ball (8 ounces) burrata cheese, quartered

Make the dressing. In a food processor, combine the basil, garlic, olive oil, vinegar, shallot, and red pepper flakes, season with salt, and pulse until smooth. Transfer to a medium bowl.

Make the salad. Heat a grill to medium-high or heat a grill pan over medium-high heat. Brush the cut sides of the peaches lightly with the olive oil. Place the peaches on the grill, cut-sides down, and cook until grill marks appear, 3 to 4 minutes. Halve the grilled peaches to yield 8 pieces total.

Add the arugula and cucumber noodles to the bowl with the dressing and toss to coat.

Divide the cucumber noodles among four bowls and top evenly with the grilled peaches and burrata.
