There are a few things that I am 100% certain of…
1. Things taste better with salt
2. Having a bit of a tan makes me happy
3. My dad makes the worlds most amazing cookies
4. Yoga pants are the best thing ever invented
5. Burrata should be its own food group
You agree right? I mean, minus the fact you haven’t all had a chance to try my dad’s kitchen sink cookies, but let’s just overlook that for a hot second. The rest of the points are completely valid. And today I’m taking #5 to a whole new level.
Burrata and Stone Fruit Salad!! It would be on the menu for lunch and dinner daily if I didn’t continue to eat all the Burrata before it was time to whip this one up. But I can’t be held accountable for my actions when Burrata is involved. #sorryimnotsorry
It’s the perfect salad to sloooooowly start to say goodbye to summer. Scratch that. I refuse to say goodbye to summer just yet. I will rock my flip flops and short shorts until it starts to rain and I am forced to put on close toed shoes. But until that day comes…. It’s sunglasses, flip flops and Stone Fruit and Burrata Salads all day every day!

What an amazing summer salad and I love the burrata in there!
Put burrata on anything and I’m there!! LOVE this – perfect for summer!
One of my favorite summer salads!
Obsessed with burrata and stone fruit. What a perfect combo!
All that stone fruit would make me so happy! Burrata really should be its own food group hahaha I’d eat it on the daily to get that fill!
This looks like the perfect way to hold on to summer! That champagne vinaigrette sounds wonderful!
That Champagne Vinaigrette sounds amazing and loving all the vibrant colors! Thanks for prolonging summer a bit with this post! 🙂 pinned
Love champagne vinaigrette! this salad is awesome!!!
So gorgeous, burrata with fruit is the best!
Agree with all the things! Minus your Dad making the best cookies, my Dad can’t bake to save his life. But everything else, yes yes yes. Beautiful salad!
Gorgeous. Delicious. Need now.
This is stunning! I totally agree that burrata should be its own food group.
Yum! Beautiful salad.
That photo!!! Wow, this is a fabulous recipe!!!
wow!! Healthy, Delicious and Colorful.
I’m trying to decided which of this I like the most – the cheese, the fruits or the bubbly vinegarette! Woman, you’ve done it again!
Burrata is my lifeblood right now. I can’t stop eating it. Help!
we added watercress and omitted the vinaigrette…drizzled olive oil and aged balsamic…. goat cheese would work too.
Any suggestions on how to keep the fruit from oxidizing or getting mushy if I want to prep everything in advanced?
unfortunately you can’t really prep stone fruit in advance without it turning brown!! There are some sprays that some people use but I’m not a fan of those. I’m sorry!
Very good, and I don’t even like tomatoes! I only ate a couple cherry tomatoes and picked around the rest.
