30 Minute Pineapple Chicken with Coconut Rice.
This colorful Tomato, Peach, and Burrata salad is summer on a plate with the most delicious herb vinaigrette and plenty of sweet summer fruits and burrata cheese. Juicey cherry tomatoes, sweet peaches, and fresh basil tossed together with an herby, tangy honey vinaigrette. Serve this fresh summer salad over creamy burrata cheese and top with with toasted pumpkin seeds for a healthy crunch. It’s simple to throw together, but so fresh and flavorful!
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.
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.
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.
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!

This is the most delicious summer salad I think I’ve ever had! The combination of flavors and textures is so fresh and the savory, herby dressing is to die for. I might make a batch just to have on hand.
Fantastic!! Thanks a lot for trying this recipe and sharing your review, I love to hear that it was enjoyed! ?Tieghan
I made this salad for a summer BBQ, and it was the perfect accompaniment! It is a beautiful salad and so refreshing. And the flavors are so delicious; the combination of the tomatoes and herbs along with the sweet cherries and peaches. I purposely didn’t use all of the vinaigrette, so I can add more tomatoes and peaches for leftovers. I strongly recommend! PS – I need to buy a cherry pitter, if there is such a tool!
Perfect!! I love to hear that this recipe was a hit and appreciate you giving it a try! xxTieghan
The Pampered Chef has one that will pit four at a time. It’s a cherry olive pitter.
That’s awesome! Thanks for sharing Lee!
Judy – I was in the same boat as you and I went on YouTube and found a great way to pit a cherry.
Put the destemmed cherry on the top of a bottle (wine or glass water). Poke the top of the cherry with a chopstick and push the pit into the bottle. I was super skeptical… but it worked!
This was my first recipe I’ve made from your website and WOW. It did not disappoint! I’ve been telling my husband we are going to start eating more salads. He was skeptical at first, but this was the perfect dish to ease him into the idea. All of the flavors combined were so delicious, he couldn’t get enough of it! Can’t wait to try another one of your recipes tonight!
Awesome!! Thanks so much for your comment and making this recipe. So glad it hear it was enjoyed! xTieghan
I made this delightful salad and fell in LOVE! So delicious! I do wonder though how it would be the next day for leftovers. Maybe too “wet”?
Happy Monday! I love to hear that this recipe was enjoyed, thanks so much for making it and sharing your feedback!! I think it would be fine, probably a little juicy though. Have the best week:) xx
Made this for friends last night! WOW! It’s a keeper! Thanks for the new recipe for summer!
Love to hear that this recipe was a hit, thanks for making it and sharing your feedback! ??xTieghan
I didn’t have fresh cherries, so used dried cranberries instead- still delish! roasting the peaches and tomatoes for some additional flavor- beautiful salad!
Wonderful!! I love to hear that this recipe was a winner, thanks so much for making it! Have the best weekend:) xTieghan
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!
Hi Carla! I’m so happy to hear that you enjoyed this recipe! xTieghan
Best new recipe I tried all year. Delicious and gorgeous!

This is so flavorful and healthy. Beautiful colors that make you happy just looking at it!! Refreshing yet filling!
Awesome! Love to hear that this recipe was enjoyed and truly appreciate you giving it a try! xTieghan
What could I use instead of cherries ?? Or could o just leave them out?
I would just skip the cherries. I hope you love this recipe, please let me know if you give it a try! xTieghan
This salad is aesthetically beautiful and delicious! I absolutely loved it! The one thing I’d change next time I make it is to either pre-sweat the shallot or remove it altogether from the dressing as the aftertaste of raw shallot lingered when all the other fresh flavours had gone.
Wonderful! Thanks a bunch for giving this recipe a try, I am thrilled that it was enjoyed! Have a great weekend:) xTieghan
Left out the cherries, added a small amount of arugula but otherwise followed the recipe. The ripeness of the fruit was essential to this recipe’s success.
It was 90 degrees today and was the perfect compliment to an excellent Rose!
I love to hear that this recipe was enjoyed, thanks a lot for giving it a try! xTieghan
So so so so good – the red pepper flakes make it.
Happy Sunday! Thanks so much for making this recipe, I am so glad that it was enjoyed!! ☀️xTieghan
