Is it just me, or has it been a particularly good year for peaches? I've found myself creating all sorts of fun summer peach recipes - the first of which is this super easy summer appetizer. It's perfect for those hot summer nights when you don't want to heat up the kitchen!
Inspired by a caprese salad, this dish substitutes peaches for tomatoes, honey for balsamic, and adds a little prosciutto for salt and protein.
Oh, and my favorite substitution of all time: it uses burrata instead of mozzarella cheese.
What is burrata?
Burrata is made from fresh mozzarella cheese. The cheese is then filled with cheese curd and fresh cream, to create an oozy, delightfully sinful cheese experience that is just as good paired with sweet as savory.
It's like mozzarella on decadence steroids.
I know this looks like such a simple appetizer ( and it is! ) but don't let that fool you into thinking it isn't absolutely, sinfully delicious.
The directions below should be viewed as guidelines, not a strict rulebook. If your peaches aren't very sweet, add more honey. If you love basil, add more! If you want to make this an entire meal, serve it over some fresh spring mix lettuces tossed with a little oil and vinegar.
I'll have more peach recipes coming soon, so make sure to check back if you are looking for ways to use up those end of summer peaches, or sign up for emails using the form in my sidebar to have recipes delivered to your inbox!
