Organic Ingredients

Mild, soft cheese


Red onion

Heirloom tomatoes


Sherry vinegar

Olive oil

Salt and pepper

Herbs of your choice


Smear a healthy amount of some yummy spreadable cheese onto a platter. I use burrata, (a fresh Italian cheese made from mozzarella and cream. The outer shell is solid mozzarella, while the inside contains both mozzarella and cream, giving it an unusual, soft texture), but anything relatively mild will work. Toss raw corn kernels, thinly sliced red onion, heirloom tomato wedges, and sliced peaches in a mixture of sherry vinegar and olive oil. Season it with salt and pepper. Place vegetable mixture on top of cheese. Finish with chopped chives, tarragon, or other herbs. Give one final drizzling of olive oil. Serve.
