Peach burrata salad is always best served fresh and straight away! Whenever you work with fresh fruits and vegetables, they must be tasted before the fruits turn brown and the vegetables wilt. Here are some tips if you want to save the ingredients to make it throughout the week.
Conservation of peaches: Typically the peaches will last 3-4 days on the counter. If you have ripe peaches that you want to save for more peach burrata salad later, store them in the refrigerator. You want to store it in the fridge because the cool temperature slows down ripening. It also prevents the peaches from spoiling quickly.
**Do not assemble if storage** Leftover ingredients to make this salad later should be stored separately. Assembling the salad should only take place if you are about to eat it! Store lettuce and burrata in airtight containers in the refrigerator. When you’re ready for more salad, follow the directions on the recipe card.
