Less of a recipe, more of a summer grab bag of all of August’s best flavors. Ripe, juicy peaches and tomatoes, sweet corn and creamy burrata don’t need much doctoring to taste delicious (and they’re just so pretty!). Add some good quality olive oil and vinegar and fresh basil and we’re in business.

I won’t make any promises to lay off the burrata, but I will do my best to cut back once summer ends to make room for other cheeses in my life. For now, I’ll be here, averaging a ball of burrata a day.

    Is the corn cooked or raw?

    • Amy says:

      The corn is raw! I love fresh corn cut right off the cob in uses like this. But you could give it a quick char on the grill if you don’t like raw corn!

    Do you boil the corn first? Thanks so much!!

    • Amy says:

      No, I don’t boil the corn! I love to eat raw corn straight off the cob in the summer when it’s fresh. You could also give it a quick char on the grill if you don’t like it raw!
