Everyone knows I love a good Caprese Salad. In the summertime there’s nothing else like it. Why? Because well, it’s the epitome of fresh. You just can’t get much better than vine-ripened Heirloom tomatoes, fragrant Basil, good olive oil, a little balsamic vinegar and cheese. It’s like a party in your mouth with all the cool flavors.

It just doesn’t get any better.

Unless maybe…

You add grilled lobster.

I KNOW! WHY did I not do this sooner? Heirloom tomatoes, creamy Burrata, aromatic Basil, caramelized grilled peaches, a fantastically rich olive oil, a drizzle of white peach balsamic vinegar and a plump buttery lobster tail over a bed of Watercress with a wedge of an Italian Chocolate baguette.

Oh Em. Gee.

Can you say fresh y’all?


Grilled Lobster, Peach & Burrata Caprese

  • 1 lobster tail, grilled
  • 4 peach halves, grilled

  • 5 tbsp. good olive oil
  • 3 tbsp. balsamic vinegar – white peach infused is amazing if you can locate it
  • Smoked Salt
