Krazy Kitchen Mom Tips
  • Store burrata cheese in the container with liquid until ready to use. Remove the burrata 15 minutes before using it so it’s nice and creamy when you spread it out.
  • There are many different hacks to pit fresh cherries, but I find it best to slice them in half and remove the seed from one of the halves with your finger.
  • I don’t mix the cherries/tomatoes with the peaches prior to building the salad so that I maintain the nice bright yellow color of the peaches.
