Burrata, Peach and Pistachio Salad

There is nothing more delicious than a juicy, sweet peach on a hot summer day. From late July to the very end of August, I find all kinds of ways to incorporate them into what we eat on a daily basis. In the morning I throw them in smoothies or on top of yogurt and granola. For dessert, I love them grilled with vanilla bean ice cream or a simple peach crisp. In between, for lunch or dinner, I sneak them into quesadillas or in this delicious salad with burrata and pistachios. The peppery taste of the arugula balances really well with the creamy burrata and sweetness of the ripe peaches. I could have this on repeat all year long and be very happy! Enjoy!
