Peach and Burrata Arugula Salad
Hi, I’m Natalie, and I’m now obsessed with doing laundry.
Our new house had a washer and dryer hookup, but no washer and dryer. I originally thought we would buy an old, used set off Craigslist. We could keep it simple. But then my dad mentioned how much we would save on our electricity bill in the long run if we bought an energy efficient front loading washer and dryer. Plus, we will most likely be using this set for years and years to come.
A little seed was planted.
Must. Get. Front. Loading. Washer. And. Dryer.
It would be so much prettier in the open hallway where the washer and dryer go that I walk past about 20 times a day. Of course when begging Shawn I only touted the benefits of getting energy efficient. Luckily it didn’t take much convincing after seeing that Home Depot had an LG set on sale 30% off for 4th of July weekend.
Off to Home Depot we went, after a day of painting and building Ikea furniture. We we’re a hot mess. Not hot as in attractive, hot as in sweaty. We were a sweaty mess. But so is everyone else at Home Depot at 7pm on Saturday night. We fit right in, paint stains on our shirt and all.
Our oh-so-pretty washer and dryer set got delivered and it’s like Christmas! I’m having so much turning the knobs, and selecting the exact settings I need. “Water temp? Warm. Spin Speed? Let’s go with Medium. Soil Level? These aren’t too dirty, better go with Normal.”
I’m looking for any excuse to do laundry.
“Whoops, spilled a little water on this shirt. Better wash it!”
“Uh oh, I think there’s some dirt on these jeans. Off to the washer they go!”
Thank goodness peaches are in season, those juicy peaches are packed full of juice that will surely drip all over my clothes. Hurray for more laundry!
Besides featuring my favorite fruit of the summer, this peach and burrata arugula salad features my new favorite cheese: burrata.
Oh burrata, how have I never had you until this year? It is like a creamier, velvetier version of fresh mozzarella cheese. The outside is firm like mozarella, but the inside is so soft and spreadable. It’s amazing.
You are going to want to make this peach and burrata arugula salad all summer long. The sweet peaches with the creamy burrata mixed with the peppery arugula. It is flavor heaven in your mouth.
When you make this peach and burrata arugula salad, I am going to have to insist you also make the grilled bread with rosemary dipping oil. The 2 pair perfectly together with a glass of chardonnay, a warm summer night, and Ben Rector playing on Spotify. At least that is how Shawn and I enjoyed this peach and burrata arugula salad the last 2 times I made it, *wink*.
Peach and Burrata Arugula Salad
- 3 peaches, sliced along the pit, then sliced into 1/2" thick half moons
- 8 ounces burrata, removed from water, water lightly drained and squeezed out with a paper towel, then cut into 1/3" thick slices
- 6 ounces arugula
- 2 tablespoons balsamic glaze, store bought (Trader Joe's has it!)
- 2 tablespoon olive oil
- salt and pepper
Arugula Salad Dressing
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 teaspoon dijon mustard
- 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
- 1 teaspoon honey
- pinch of salt & pepper
- On 2 plates, arrange the peaches and burrata along the outer edges, leaving the center open.
- In a large bowl, make the salad dressing by combining all ingredients and whisking to combine. Add in the arugula, and toss to coat all the arugula.
- Add the dressed arugula to the center of the plates of peach and burrata. On each plate, drizzle 1 tablespoon olive oil and 1 tablespoon balsamic glaze on the peaches and burrata. Sprinkle the peaches and burrata with a pinch of salt and pepper.

This post made me laugh. They know our names at Lowes and Home Depot and I’m constantly in there with paint stained clothes. I wish I were kidding, but I’m not. Don’t feel so alone!
This salad looks delicious, I love everything about it. Pinning right now!
I love this Natalie!! I have a fridge full of peaches right now so I should definitely make this. plus, burrata. duh. PS I love your video, your hands look amazing! No really.
This looks so amazingly fresh and simple, love this type of salad on a hot summer day! And I’m pretty sure your washer addiction will wear off pretty soon, I was like that with my vacuum for awhile and now I’m back to hating vacuuming!
Haha you are too cute girl :) I don’t mind doing laundry but it’s the folding and putting it away part that I’m not a fan of. But I am a BIG fan of arugula and this salad! It looks fabulous! I love the juicy peaches in here and with the burrata and balsamic glaze it sounds all kinds of amazing!
I swear to goodness, we are coast-to-coast moving twins! :) Our new home didn’t come with a washer/dryer, either, and we also bought LG models! I absolutely love them (and they sing to us when they’re finished) and definitely seem more efficient than the appliances we left at the condo. So impressed so far.
Also, this looks amazing :)
Oh my gosh! We are SUCH twins! Mine sing to me when they’re done too! Makes me so happy. Did you get the ones on sale at Home Depot? Quite the bargain. And so far worth every penny. I’m having waaaay to much fun with them.
We actually bought ours at Lowe’s back when they were on sale near Memorial Day. I was absolutely thrilled because they also let us use a 10 percent off coupon we got from our Realtor, so I felt RICH! (Except, you know, I am far from rich.) Our washer is actually a top-loader, but our dryer is front load. They definitely make laundry more exciting! :)
God I love Burrata. I was just in Rome last weekend, and let’s just say it was pretty darn amazing. You and Shawn should venture into SF and go to Burrata restaurant! The pizzas are soooo good. I’m happy to hear about your washer dryer :) I don’t have one in our apartment, but the building has 3 of each, so I can get laundry done in one fell swoop which is pretty awesome.
There’s a whole restaurant in SF called Burrata?! Ahhh, I’m going right away!
I have been really getting in to adding fruit to my salad recently (starting with strawberries and balsamic) and this sounds like the thing I need to move on to next. It looks delicious.
I was lucky enough to be a taste tester for this delicious salad and I have already made it at my house!! I absolutely love it. My first time trying bursts cheese and I loved it.
Yea! You’re the best sister : )
Natalie you can come over and do the laundry anytime. LOL. I hate doing laundry. Especially the putting it all away part. What I love is burrata, it’s my favorite. Such a perfect combination of flavors on this plate. Love it.
I hope your laundry motivation lasts a while! This salad looks perfect. Fresh peaches are the best right now, and I bet they pair perfectly with the peppery arugula and creamy burrata!
Hi Natalie, love this salad, have to get my hands on some burrata, sounds wonderful. Also your video is such a nice touch, keep them coming!
I think the only way to can really love doing laundry is by having a really nice machine. I saw a big difference in water and utility bill after getting new machines. I love them :D
This salad looks unbelievable Natalie! I just recently heard of burrata and I’m dying to try it. Sounds delicious! Pinning :D
I am definitely not a big fan of doing laundry, I must admit. Maybe I just need a little motivation? A brand new awesome washer and dryer and an amazing peach salad would probably be motivation enough ;)
This is total proof it is the little things in life that can bring us the most joy! :) Love the salad recipe, anything with peaches and I am in!
Uhhh…did I write this post? Haha moving twin – we had the *exact* same discussion over here. From initially thinking we’d get a used set, to dad’s intervention, to being sweaty messes at the big box stores picking up new ones during the Fourth of July sales! Those poor things have been in just about constant use since – breaking them in good! I first tried burrata (it wasn’t exactly just a ‘try’, I devoured it) a few months ago and fell in love. I think we better stay in sync – this is on our dinner menu! :)
We are SUCH twins! Do you just love your new washer and dryer? It’s like the most grown up fun toy EVER! I love that we moved on the exact same weekend, and you can feel my, “this is so exciting! uggghhh, this is so much work!” roller coaster of emotions. We get cable tomorrow, woo hoo!
Your father is so right, Nat. We now have new washer and dryer and you save a lot on our electricity bill. It is a very good investment. Love fruits in salads especially when they are in season. So fresh and so summer! And your video again is so cute ;-)
Woohoo new washer and dryer sounds awesome!! Front loads are so much better, and quicker too, at least I think lol! Keep doing laundry until your heart is content!! I’m sure you’ll be over it soon enough…maybe ;) love the video yet again!! I was scared you were gonna chop off your finger in the beginning lol! I loved seeing so many trader joes products…I kept thinking “hey I have that too! And that…and that.” Awesome! I almost got that big box of peaches and then didn’t. Now I must get them and make this! So simple!! Thanks for sharing Natalie
We could use some of your can-do attitude over here to deal with our mountain of laundry! ;) This salad looks healthy and fresh! So nice for a summer lunch!
Yep. I so want a mountain of this gorgeous salad and a huge pile of your bread on the side. This looks seriously amazing, Natalie! I’ve never tried burrata cheese before, but I am loving the sound of it. I need to get my hands on some so I can make this salad PRONTO. Pinned!
Aren’t front loader washer and dryers the best? My husband and I got them last year and it’s super fancy! LED lights and so many gadgets, I’m still learning how to use some of the settings! :)
This salad looks amazing, Natalie! What a creative combination to add to arugula. Peach is one of my favorite fruits for the summer, so this looks like the perfect combination. Pinned!
