Peach, Burrata, and Basil Salad

A white bowl filled with peach, burrata, and basil salad.
Peach, burrata, and basil salad is one of those non-recipe recipes that's a riff on Caprese salad. Arrange some oozing pieces of burrata cheese on a plate, top with peach chunks, and toss in some basil.

Notes

*What can I substitute for burrata cheese?

If you've never experienced the incredible cheese that is burrata, we'd urge you to find some as quickly as possible. We have, on more than one occasion, heard the scent released when cutting into a round of burrata as the "breath of angels". We kid you not. It's that good. But okay, okay. It's basically mozzarella that's been seriously upgraded, that's all. So a fresh (or young) mozzarella will work, as will bocconcini. You won't get the creamy interior that makes burrata so appealing but you'll still get the creamy and milky exterior.
