Stone Fruit, Burrata & Prosciutto Salad
Stone Fruit, Burrata & Prosciutto Salad with Creamy Balsamic Dressing
I am in LOVE with this summer salad – stone fruit, burrata & prosciutto salad with a creamy balsamic dressing! Assorted stone fruit – like peaches, nectarines and plums are tossed with greens, burrata, prosciutto and fresh picked basil with a creamy balsamic dressing.
This is a no cook meal/dish/appetizer that is just heaven! (especially for hot days ahead!) This dressing is one of my go-to’s that is quick and SO so good.
This dressing is inspired by my Uncle Ira – in our family, we call this creamy balsamic the “good dressing”. We pretty much can have it by the spoonful. This balsamic dressing recipe is inspired by his famous version!
Ingredients You Need For Your Salad
For The Salad
- assorted greens, even fresh herbs like basil would be great here as well!
- burrata cheese
- kosher salt and black pepper
You can use any summer fruit/stone fruit on hand and available to you, if you need to swap out peaches, for example, this would be just as delicious! Other fruit additions that can work could be any type of pluot and apricots as well. (Cherries would be wonderful here as well!)
If you’d like to make this recipe vegetarian, omit the prosciutto!
For The Creamy Balsamic Dressing
- dijon mustard
- balsamic vinegar
- extra-virgin olive oil
- salt and pepper
For some extra additional add-on in the dressing, you can add minced garlic, or some red pepper flakes for some heat if you prefer.
Instructions To Make This Salad Recipe
Prep your fruit
Begin by prepping and slicing your stone fruit. Add in a bowl with your washed greens, basil with a little bit of salt and pepper. Set aside.
Make your dressing
In the meantime, make your dressing. In a bowl, add minced shallots with dijon, salt and pepper. Next add in your balsamic vinegar and mix well until everything is combined. Using a whisk, slowly start streaming in your olive oil while mixing until emulsified and everything is creamy and mixed.
Toss your dressing with the stone fruit, greens and finish with prosciutto, top with burrata and serve!
