The Burrata, Pesto and Caramelized Nuts:

For those unfamiliar, burrata is a combination of mozzarella and cream. It may just be the dreamiest cheese on the planet. Top that cheese with pesto and serve with grilled peaches and balsamic and you have a flavor combo made in heaven!! You can certainly use store bought pesto, but I recommend you learn to make your own here.

LET’S TALK PEACHES YO:

Peaches are a ‘stone fruit’. Stone fruits have a large pit in the center that is surrounded by a thick flesh. Cherries, apricots, peaches, nectarines etc… are all stone fruits. Stone fruits are high in antioxidants and therefore have natural anti inflammatory properties. Unfortunately they are only in season for a short time so take advantage and get while the getting is good!
(You can serve this salad alongside my Lime Chili Chicken Skewers or my Apricot Chicken Skewers)
