I have been eating a version of peaches with burrata at pretty much every restaurant I have been to in the past month. I’m not mad about it. I wanted to make it at home with a few tweaks to make it my own. First off, I grilled the peaches to make them more tender, bring out the sweetness, and add a charred flavor. Second, I added a mint, honey, and habanero dressing to give the dish some extra freshness and a kick!
Mint in the blender with oil, garlic, habanero, and honey.
Grill the peaches to brown on both sides.
Rip the burrata into pieces, then put the peaches on the plate, followed by the cucumber, and top with the dressing.
I am picky about the ripeness of peaches, and when I have this at a restaurant I have felt that they were just slightly under-ripe most of the time. Grilling the peaches really brought them to the level of tender sweetness I wanted.
