New caprese salad

Makes two servings
Prep time: 10 minutes



  • 3 tbs. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 1/2 tbs. balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 tsp. sea salt
  • 1/8 tsp. freshly ground black pepper


  • 2 medium tomatoes, sliced
  • Sea salt, to taste
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 2 medium peaches, sliced
  • 10–15 basil leaves
  • 6 oz. burrata cheese, cut into pieces


  1. In a small bowl, combine vinaigrette ingredients and whisk thoroughly until blended.
  2. Place sliced tomatoes on a large plate and sprinkle with sea salt and black pepper. Add peaches and basil leaves and gently toss to coat.
  3. Top with burrata.
  4. Drizzle vinaigrette over the salad and serve.

Tomatoes and peaches both sweeten and soften as they ripen. To make your perfect pick, squeeze the fruit gently — it should have just a little give to it.
