Can anything be more delicious, easy and good looking than this Farro Corn Salad with Peach & Burrata?
I know it is a little late to post this recipe as fresh corn is one of the ingredients, but this is so easy and so delicious that I didn’t want to keep it for myself. So let’s go through the recipe and you’ll see what I mean:
Ingredients for this Farro Corn Salad with Peach & Burrata are:
- Corn on the cob
- Cherry tomatoes
- Salt & Pepper
- Dressing of: avocado, orange juice, olive oil, basil, salt & pepper
Simple ingredients, easy to find. If you cannot find all ingredients, the salad is versatile enough to replace corn on the cob with canned corn, peach with nectarine or apricot or even mango. Burrata can be replaced with mozzarella or goat cheese or feta. The two latter ones do change the flavor of the salad, but are perfect replacements.
Lots of fresh ingredients, lost of different textures, and lots of shapes and colors all in one bowl or on one plate.
Drizzle with the avocado dressing and top with a ball or Burrata and you’ll be in seventh salad heaven.
