Ultra-creamy, rich, and smooth, burrata adds a touch of luxury to everything it touches. We love it in salads, like this one for Peach, Tomato, and Fried Farro Salad with Burrata; it also pairs beautifully with eggplant, as you'll find in recipes like Orecchiette with Marinated Eggplant, Burrata and Chiles, and Charred Eggplant with Burrata and Pomegranate-Walnut Relish. Read on for even more of our favorite burrata recipes.

The Fuyu persimmon that chef Helene Henderson uses in this beautiful salad is light orange and shaped like a tomato; don't confuse it with the Hachiya variety, which is a deeper orange, heart-shaped, and only edible when very soft to the touch. When she can't find good persimmons, Henderson makes the salad with other seasonal fruit, like nectarines.

The crunchy, savory kalamata olive streusel that tops this salad from Bryan and Michael Voltaggio is our new condiment obsession. Toss it in your next kale salad, sprinkle over roasted root vegetables, or use it to garnish steamed grains. If you can't find good beefsteak tomatoes for this dish, use the best greenhouse tomatoes you can get your hands on.
