Clearly I felt like our Wednesday needs lots of color and summer vibes. As I said above, salad is really what summer is all about. Tomatoes, peaches, and herbs in their raw form…and with a darn good amount of cheese too.

It’s all of my favorite things in one bowl, I’m kind of obsessed.

Before I left for my trip on Monday, per usual I was really working to get everything done and tidy things up before heading out of town for a week. One of my favorite peach growers, The Peach Truck, sent me a box of peaches earlier in the week. And then, Hood River Cherry Company also sent a bucket full of fresh cherries. Which I have to say are the BEST cherries I’ve ever tasted…so good you guys.

I didn’t want anything to go to waste. So, at the very, very last minute I made this salad with the tomatoes and fruit I had on hand. I also used herbs from the garden and the two balls of burrata cheese I had left in the fridge.

I really didn’t have time to be making this, but I did, and it’s was surely the right move. Hands down, this is my favorite recipe of the week.

Alright details – start with the vinaigrette

As you might have imagined, this is pretty simple. Especially seeing as it’s really just an overly extravagant caprese salad.

Start with the vinaigrette, which is key when it comes to additional flavor on this salad. It’s an olive oil basil balsamic honey vinaigrette made with a small amount of raw shallot and plenty of herbs. The shallot adds this nice really subtle flavor, while the herbs and lemon brighten things up.

For the herbs, I went heavy on the basil and oregano, then added pinches of fresh dill and thyme. You can use any combination of herbs you love most, but when it comes to a summer salad with tomatoes and peaches, I always say to add basil.

Now the salad

For the salad, you need fresh cherry tomatoes, peaches, and sweet cherries (or another stone fruit you love).

We’re going to toss the salad with the vinaigrette, then let everything sit and marinate for a bit to really develop and bring on those delicious flavors.

Finish it up

To serve, I love arranging the salad in either a big bowl or on a serving plate. Then I take the burrata cheese and break it over the salad. Top with fresh herbs, toasted pumpkin seeds, and a sprinkle of flaky sea salt.

Then just add crusty toasted bread on the side for scooping up the salad…and that’s how I do it!

Not a lot of effort, but such a gorgeous and delicious end result.

This makes a great appetizer or side dish to any summer dinner. You could even enjoy this as an afternoon snack.

And if you’re hosting friends for dinner? Make this, it never disappoints, and it doubles as the prettiest centerpiece for any summer table!

    Tieghan-This was course two at my four course wine pairing…. just enough peaches left in the Atlanta Market. I paired this course with a fantastic Italian Rose. I also could not find fresh cherries-duh, out of season, so I used frozen cherries that I had froze myself when they were in season, still turned out amazing! Love everything about this recipe!
