Tiffani Thiessen’s Nectarine Caprese Salad

After chatting with us about getting her kids out into the garden, Tiffani Thiessen shared this beautiful recipe from her book Pull Up a Chair: Recipes From My Family to Yours.


1 tablespoon Champagne vinegar

1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar

kosher salt

3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

1 1/2 pounds heirloom tomatoes, cut into wedges

3 ripe nectarines, pitted and cut into wedges

8 ounces burrata cheese

1/4 cup fresh basil leaves, torn

10 fresh mint leaves, thinly sliced

freshly ground black pepper

flaky sea salt, for serving


In a small bowl, whisk together the vinegars and a pinch of kosher salt. Continue to whisk as you slowly stream in the olive oil. Taste and adjust the seasoning if necessary. Set aside.

Arrange the tomato and nectarine wedges in an alternating pattern on a serving platter. Place the burrata on top and sprinkle with the basil and mint. Drizzle everything with the vinaigrette and finish with some pepper and a pinch of flaky sea salt. Serve Immediately.
