Summer stone fruit and burrata salad

summer stone fruit and burrata salad - arugula, peaches, cherries and burrata drizzled with balsamic glaze

This post contains affiliate links

This summer stone fruit and burrata salad makes a delicious and refreshing summer appetizer, light lunch or side with dinner.

Summer is salad season am I right?! I mean, I eat salad all year round but in the summer time, I crave salads especially on those nights when it’s too hot to cook.  I combined my two loves of burrata cheese and ripe, sweet stone fruit for this salad that just bursts with flavor! If you were around last summer, you may remember my summer burrata board.

This summer stone fruit and burrata salad will literally transform you to vacationing in the Mediterranean. (Have you heard the term Tomato Girl? This is what they eat in their Tomato Girl Summer). Peppery and nutty arugula is topped with sweet peaches and cherries, silky burrata and rounded out with a beautiful balsamic glaze. Nectarines or plums work great in this salad too!  Eat as is or add some sliced proscuitto for a light lunch or serve with some grilled chicken or fish for a complete meal.

This post contains affiliate links

This is the greatest appetizer if you love Deviled Eggs.  To me, it’s not a holiday gathering without the deviled eggs. This is the best deviled egg dip you will ever have. It’s a nice healthy option for Easter or those spring or summer bar-b-ques. The best part is it’s way easier to prepare too! Serve with some fresh veggies and crackers.

The best deviled egg dip

This dip is the perfect way to use up those hard boiled eggs after Easter and makes a great light lunch or snack. You can add whatever seasonings you’d like. I chose to do traditional dill and paprika. Everything But The Bagel Seasoning works really well too! This will be a hit at your Easter table or any party you go to!

(And if you’re looking for more recipes for your Easter brunch, check out this delish spring vegetable goat cheese quiche! Click here for the recipe.)

And these adorable Bunny Treat Jars are a cute place setting or little hostess gift for Easter too!

Ingredients:

  • 6 hard boiled eggs
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 4 oz of cream cheese
  • 1 Tbsp minced garlic
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • paprika (to taste)
  • chopped dill (to taste)

The best deviled egg dip

Directions:

1.) Start by hard boiling a half dozen eggs.

2.) Once boiled, I like to let mine cool in an ice bath which makes for easier peeling.

3.) Peel and chop the hard boiled eggs.

4.) Put in a food processor with all ingredients (except the paprika and dill). If you don’t have a food processor, you can use a hand mixer and mix until creamy.

5.) When ready to serve, spoon into a bowl and top with paprika and chopped dill.

Serve on a platter with fresh veggies and crackers.
