Grilled peaches with burrata, mint, and balsamic drizzle is a super easy summer appetizer that you'll want to have all summer long!

The other night, I had a dream that a spider was crawling on my face and under my sleeping mask. Like, I literally felt its legs and body just crawling on top of my eyelids. If you know me at all, you’ll know I’m pretty terrified of any bug. I will literally scream at a bee zooming by me or an insect crawling near me. Seriously, not meant for the outdoors. I’ve never been camping before and I’m pretty sure if I were to go, I’d be glamping or loading up on bug spray.

Anyway, so the other night, I was dreaming but it felt so real so in the dream I was shaking my head vigorously and scratching at my eyelid to get the spider off my freaking face. Um yeah, thankfully it was a dream and I woke myself up because I was shaking my head so much that my sleep mask was flying off my face from one side to another. So scary! You know how in Divergent they have fear landscapes? Well, I guarantee you that one of my fear landscapes would be bugs and insects and they probably would be crawling all over me. Talk about panic attack.

This dish should be called “Julie’s way of holding onto summer” dish. I’m so going to miss grilling and the abundant amount of sweet fruit and vegetables. These peaches that I bought were the most fragrant things ever. I put one in my purse for work one day and when I got to work, my wallet smelled like a peach! I’ve never grilled a peach before and I figured this little flavor combination that I’ve got going on sounded just marvelous. Grilling peaches just brings out the sweetness even more and omg the caramelization on the outside. Soo good! And burrata? Pretty much one of my favorite cheeses ever. The balsamic drizzle just ties all the flavors together. I mean, really, can you say no to a summer dish like grilled peaches with burrata, mint and balsamic drizzle? I don’t think so :)

Now, it’s kind of hard to give a recipe or an exact formula to this cause it’s literally just grilled peaches, a whole thing of burrata, and a bit of balsamic glaze on top then sprigs of mint. I put a recipe below just in case but it’s vague due to the nature of this dish. I honestly don’t think you could mess this dish up :) your friends and family are going to L-O-V-E you if you make this for them as a goodbye to summer cookout. Labor Day, anyone?
