Spicy Corn & Peaches with Burrata Cheese
Grilled corn, peppers, fresh basil, sweet peaches, and burrata cheese all come together in this delicious, quick, and easy summer salad. This salad has all the fresh flavors of summer that everyone loves, but with a kick! Plus a ball (or two) of creamy burrata cheese.
For those of you who have not been long time readers, burrata cheese looks just similar as a ball of fresh burrata mozzarella, but the inside is more like an extra creamy ricotta cheese. If you have yet to try it, you need to as soon as possible.
Grill some of the corn, but leave one ear raw for a nice burst of sweetness with every single bite.
To balance the sweetness of the corn and peaches, throw in a couple of spicy red Fresno peppers. If youre not a huge fan of spicy foods, just reduce the amount of peppers to one or however much you feel you can handle.
This simple dish comes together really quickly and its great both warm or cold. Its so much more than a salad. You can serve it as an appetizer with a side of bread, enjoy it as a light lunch, serve it as a topping for grilled chicken, steak, seafood, etc. or even toss it with pasta for a fun pasta dinner.
- Preheat the grill or grill pan to high. Grill 3 ears corn, turning every 2-3 minutes until lightly charred all over. Remove from the grill and let sit until cool enough to handle. Remove the kernels and add to the salad bowl. During this same time, remove the kernels from the remaining ear of raw corn and also add to the salad bowl.
- To the salad bowl, add the olive oil, peppers, basil, oregano, lemon juice and zest, lime juice, and a large pinch of salt. Stir in the peaches.
- Break the burrata cheese over the salad and drizzle with olive oil.
- Serve with grilled bread or chips for scooping or as a side salad.
