Tomato, Peach, Vidalia Onion and Burrata Salad Ingredients

Grape/Cherry Tomatoes: These small tomatoes add a burst of sweetness and acidity to the salad, providing a contrast to the other ingredients. Plus, that pop of red is pretty!

Peaches: Sliced into wedges, ripe peaches lend a juicy and fragrant sweetness to the salad. Their vibrant color and delicate flavor make them a highlight of this dish. I just love peach season 🙂

Grapes: Halved grapes contribute a pop of sweetness and crunch to the salad, complementing the other fruits.

Blueberries: These little blue gems provide bursts of tartness and color, balancing the sweetness of the other fruits. Their small size makes them perfect for scattering throughout the salad.

Vidalia Onion: The sliced Vidalia onions bring a mild and slightly sweet flavor to the salad, along with a satisfying crunch. They provide a subtle savory note that works beautifully with the sweetness of the fruits and the creaminess of the cheese.

Burrata Cheese: Creamy, indulgent, and oh-so-delicious, burrata cheese takes this salad to the next level. Its creamy interior spills out when sliced, creating a luscious contrast to the crisp fruits and crunchy onions.

Fresh Herbs: Thyme, rosemary, and basil add layers of aroma and flavor to the salad. I just went out to my herb garden and grabbed a bunch of everything I had growing! And they were all delicious…feel free to customize based on what you have available in your garden.

Lemon: No dressing needed with all the flavors of this salad! Just a squeeze of fresh lemon juice! The lemon juice brightens the flavors of the salad and ties everything together.

Tomato, Peach, Vidalia Onion and Burrata Salad Instructions

Assembling the salad is a breeze. Simply combine all the fruits and vegetables in a bowl, arrange the burrata cheese on a platter, and squeeze lemon juice over the salad. Be sure to sprinkle with fresh herbs, salt, and pepper. Oh…and serve with toasted or grilled bread…if desired. But, isn’t bread always desired?!

A slice of crusty bread or a warm baguette is perfect for mopping up the creamy burrata and juices from the fruits, making every bite a complete and satisfying experience.

This Fresh Fruit and Burrata Salad is a perfect to be served as a light lunch, a refreshing side dish, or a stunning appetizer.

If you have leftovers of this Tomato Peach Vidalia Onion and Burrata Salad (which I would be surprised if you do!) here are some storage recommendations.

Refrigeration: If you have leftover salad, store it in an airtight container toss it in the fridge. For the best taste and texture, it’s recommended to consume the salad within 1-2 days of preparation. The fruits may start to lose their freshness and become soggy over time, so it’s best to enjoy the salad while it’s still at its peak.

Avoid Freezing: Due to the high water content of the fruits and vegetables, freezing the salad is not recommended as it can cause the texture to become mushy and undesirable once thawed.

You can also use the ingredients from the salad to make another simple recipe such as a fruit salsa or a fruit crumble.

While all the flavors of this salad are absolutely AMAZING, I love that it’s completely customizable to dietary preferences, ingredient availability, or personal taste preferences.

Here are some substitutions to consider:

  1. Tomatoes: If you’re not a fan of tomatoes or they’re not in season, you can substitute them with another juicy fruit or vegetable such as cucumbers, bell peppers, or even thinly sliced fennel for a refreshing crunch.
  2. Peaches: While peaches add sweetness and juiciness to the salad, you can substitute them with other stone fruits such as nectarines, apricots, or plums for a similar flavor profile. Alternatively, you can use mangoes or pineapple for a tropical twist.
  3. Grapes: If you don’t have grapes on hand or prefer a different type of fruit, you can substitute them with berries such as strawberries, raspberries, or blackberries. These berries will add a burst of color and sweetness to the salad.
  4. Vidalia Onion: While Vidalia onions have a mild and sweet flavor, you can substitute them with other types of onions such as red onions, for a different flavor profile. Alternatively, you can omit the onions altogether if you prefer a milder taste.
  5. Burrata Cheese: If you can’t find burrata cheese or prefer a different type of cheese, you can substitute it with fresh mozzarella, goat cheese, feta cheese, or ricotta cheese. Each cheese will add its own unique flavor and texture to the salad.
  6. Lemon: If you don’t have a lemon on hand, you can substitute it with other citrus fruits such as lime or orange for a similar acidic brightness. Alternatively, you can use a splash of white wine vinegar or apple cider vinegar for a tangy contrast.

Feel free to get creative and experiment with different combinations to create a salad that’s perfect for you and your family!
