Burrata And Peaches

This small bite is off the chain delicious. The one thing is it can use so many different ingredients, for example: I used Goji berries. Now these berries can be found at whole food markets,  where they specialize in organic ingredients. I store them in the refrigerator. They are packed with antioxidants and a great addition to any salad. You could of course substitute fresh blueberries, dried cranberries, even a few pistachios, whatever you like. The stars of this small bite are the peaches and Burrata cheese. I’m using frozen peaches today since peaches are not in season. Frozen peaches, along with other fruit, are packaged at their peak of freshness.

Yields: 1 serving
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Inactive Prep Time: thaw overnight in refrigerator

Ingredients:
6-8 peach wedges
1/4 cup of baby arugula leaves
1 tablespoon of Goji berries (fresh blueberries or dried cranberries)
1 tablespoon chopped Pistachios- optional
1 teaspoon of finely diced Fresno chili- optional
1/2 teaspoon of lemon zest
a spritz of fresh lemon juice from 1 wedge of lemon
1 tablespoon of Agave nectar
6 tablespoons of Burrata cheese
Kosher salt- to taste
Black pepper-to taste

Directions:
Start with 6-8 wedges of thawed frozen peaches on a plate, arranged beautifully. Next, add the Burrata cheese over the top in small spoonfuls. Then add the grated lemon zest, letting the zest flakes fall where they may. Gently drop the berries all over the dish so they fall nestling themselves throughout the dish. Then add the delicate baby arugula leaves. Finally, sprinkle with Kosher salt,  pepper, and a drizzle of Agave nectar. Right when you’re ready to serve, squeeze a wedge of lemon juice over the top.

Light and delicious, this small bite is another example of a few simple ingredients, yet still a roller coaster for your taste buds!
