Nectarine Heirloom Burrata Salad

Today I’m sharing a delicious salad to share at a dinner party: Nectarine Heirloom Burrata Salad.

Hosting a meal with a friend is easy! Maybe you don’t want to do it by yourself, or you don’t want to do it in your home. No worries, just ask a friend if you can share the meal planning and invite mutual friends! Just a fun idea.

Better yet, you can serve this delicious Nectarine Heirloom Burrata Salad!

What is burrata?

Burrata is a fresh Italian cow milk cheese (burrata, meaning “buttery”) made from mozzarella and cream. The outside shell is solid mozzarella, while the inside contains a soft, stringy mixture of cream and curd. It is usually served fresh and at room temperature.


On a large serving platter, arrange the nectarines, tomatoes, burrata, crostini pieces, and basil leaves.

Splash with balsamic vinegar and a crack of salt. Serve immediately and enjoy!

Ingredients to make a summer burrata salad

Ripe nectarines and heirloom tomatoes. You can pick these up at farm stands or the Farmer’s Market. Don’t forget the basil.

Buy good quality burrata cheese, crostini pieces (slices) or croutons, and then balsamic and salt!

Fairly easy ingredients!

How to share hosting a meal

  1. Find a friend who wants to share the meal planning (and cost) with you and decide whose home you’ll host in.
  2. Divide up the meal; remember to ask guests to contribute (this will be so affordable, you’ll want to do it again!)
  3. Invite and set the date.
  4. Cook together or bring your dishes to the other home (or vice versa), and set up and get ready together!

And did you know? It’s been proven that hospitality benefits us in the long run because we will have healthier and longer lives than those who are lonely.

Happy hosting!
