My caprese-inspired salad is made up of juicy, macerated peaches, creamy burrata cheese and a herbaceous basil oil.


  • 3 medium peaches, cut into wedges
  • 5oz (150g) ball of burrata cheese
  • 2 tsp sugar, or to taste
  • 2 tsp lemon juice, or to taste
  • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tbsp basil leaves, packed, plus more for garnish
  • Kosher salt
  • Crusty bread, warmed, for serving


  1. Take out cheese: Remove burrata from fridge and sit out at room temperature. Leave in container with water until ready to eat.
  2. Macerate peaches: Add peach wedges to a bowl and season with salt. Add sugar and lemon juice to taste, starting with ½ to 1 tsp each, depending on the sweetness and tartness of your fruit. My peaches were not very sweet.
  3. Make basil oil: Add basil with a pinch of salt and a tablespoon of oil to a food processer. Chop. Add remaining 3 tablespoons of oil and process until basil is finely chopped and incorporated in oil. Strain through a sieve.
  4. Serve: Place burrata and macerated peaches on a plate. Drizzle over basil oil and garnish with basil leaves. Serve with bread. Enjoy.
