Peach and Burrata Salad with Basil Chimichurri

I LOVE burrata and I wanted to savor the last of summer’s peaches with a simple peach and burrata recipe. And I will just say this peach and burrata salad with basil chimichurri is a pretty amazing way to celebrate the end of summer. Even though everything in me is fighting against going into the chilly season, I’m trying to make the most of it. Starting with this salad and then once the cool weather rolls in, I’ll just be over here daydreaming about soups and cozy nights in crafting.

I’m not usually a huge savory/sweet combo type of girl but this is a really amazing balance between the two. The onions help add a little more of the savory which I prefer usually with burrata. But you could leave out the onions if that’s not your style! I can’t say enough about how perfect these peaches were though – the best flavor and texture. I feel like peaches can really underwhelm me if they’re too ripe or under ripe and these were perfection!
