Peach, Tomato, and Fried Farro Salad with Burrata

By Ann Taylor Pittman, Food & Wine

When the evening light lingers and begs me to dine al fresco, I want something light but satisfying. I want something bursting with summer produce. I want something cool and refreshing that I can enjoy with a crisp glass of wine. Yep, I want a salad. But not just any salad, and certainly not a lame salad—which, to me, is a crime during a season ripe with so many amazing possibilities.

Active Time

35 MIN

Total Time

35 MIN


Serves : 4


  • 4 cups canola oil
  • 1 (8.5-ounce) pouch pre-cooked farro (about 1 3/4 cups)
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, plus more to taste
  • 1 pound assorted small and large heirloom tomatoes, cored and cut into 1-inch wedges
  • 2 medium peaches, cut into 1-inch wedges
  • 2 cups baby arugula
  • 1/4 cup very thinly vertically sliced red onion 
  • 2 tablespoons thinly sliced fresh mint
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 (4-ounce) balls burrata cheese, each torn in half

How to Make It

Step 1   

Heat canola oil in a Dutch oven over medium-high until a thermometer submerged in oil registers 375°F. Add half of farro. Fry until browned and crisp, 4 to 5 minutes (do not allow temperature of oil to drop below 350°F). Remove fried farro from pan with a fine wire-mesh strainer or spider. Drain farro on paper towels; immediately sprinkle with salt to taste. Repeat procedure with remaining farro.

Step 2   

Combine tomatoes, peaches, arugula, onion, and mint in a large bowl. Combine olive oil, vinegar, salt, and pepper in a small bowl or jar; whisk or seal and shake until well blended. Drizzle half of dressing over tomato mixture; toss gently to combine. Arrange salad on a platter; top with burrata pieces and about 2/3 cupfried farro (reserve remaining farro for another use). Drizzle salad with remaining dressing, and serve immediately.


Store remaining fried farro in an airtight container at room temperature up to 1 week or freeze 3 to 4 months.
