Ingredients
  • 2 ripe peaches, pitted and cut into wedges
  • 8 oz burrata or fresh mozzarella (1-2 balls)
  • 5 oz mesclun salad greens (1 bag)
  • 1/4 cup fresh chives, minced
  • sprinkle of good quality salt (such as fleur de sel, pink himalayan, etc.)
Candied Jalapenos
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 Tbsp lime juice
  • 2 jalapenos, thinly sliced into rounds
Honey Lime Vinaigrette
  • 1 Tbsp honey
  • 1 Tbsp lime juice
  • 1 tsp fresh lime zest, grated
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
Instructions
Candied Jalapenos
  1. In a small saucepan combine the sugar, water, lime juice, and jalapeño slices and set over medium heat. Bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer. Simmer for about 10 minutes and remove from the heat. Place jalapeños and the cooking syrup into an airtight container and chill until ready to use.

Honey Lime Vinaigrette
  1. Whisk together the honey, lime juice, lime zest, salt and pepper. Slowly whisk in the olive oil until emulsified.

Make the Salad
  1. Arrange the peach wedges and burrata (you can leave it whole or cut it open) among the mesclun greens.

  2. Drizzle with dressing, sprinkle with minced chives, and top with candied jalapeno slices. Finish with a sprinkle of good salt.

Recipe Notes
  • The peaches are the star of the show here so be sure to use ripe ones for optimal flavor. 
  • The candied jalapeños can be made several days in advance and stored in the refrigerator in their syrup until ready to use.
  • Save the leftover jalapeño syrup to flavor cocktails (think spicy margaritas or Mexican mules).
  • If you can't find burrata, fresh mozzarella can be substituted.
  • I like a mix of mesclun greens, but baby arugula or spinach would be delicious too.
  • Don't skip that sprinkle of finishing salt. It really makes this salad pop!
