Without a doubt, one of my favorite things about summer is fresh peaches. Peach season gives me new life and I always look forward to it, so imagine my excitement for this peach, avocado, and burrata salad! It is the perfect summer salad — fresh, vibrant, flavorful.
This is a no-lettuce salad which also just feels right for the summer. Plus it is all topped with a basil lemon dressing that is one of my favorite dressings ever. Recently I have been buying a lot of basil at the beginning of each week to make a big batch of this dressing to put on everything! It’s such a great, versatile dressing that pairs well with so many fresh summer flavors. So if you like the dressing too, make extra so you can put it on all your other salads and bowls!
ingredients needed for this peach, avocado, and burrata salad
- burrata cheese
- parmesan cheese
- lemon juice
- olive oil
how to make the basil lemon dressing
This dressing could not be easier. Just throw everything in a blender and blend until smooth! If you have extra dressing, keep it in the fridge. The dressing will set up a bit if you leave it in the fridge overnight, so to get it back to normal, just give it a quick stir or blend it again!
I seriously love this dressing on so many different things (obvi including this salad). It is perfect for any summer bowls or salads. If you want to make a big batch to have extra like I do, you’ll need quite a bit of basil. My favorite place to get basil when I need a lot of it is at Trader Joe’s! They have a big container for a couple dollars that works great.
