On Sunday, Gwyneth Paltrow instagrammed a delicious summer dish prepared by celebrity friends Cameron Diaz and Benji Madden. The Hollywood a-lister behind the lifestyle website Goop showed off a picture of a vibrant salad plate with the "freshest and sweetest peaches and burrata."
Paltrow, who is admittedly a passionate food lover, snapped the healthy dish sprinkled with basil, and drizzled with olive oil and balsamic vinegar.
"Oh my freshest sweetest peaches and burrata. Thank heaven for @camerondiaz and @benjaminmadden," the 42-yer-old actress wrote.
Diaz, 42, who has taken a break from acting to pursue her family life with her rocker husband, is no stranger to food and cooking herself. Just last year, the actress published her second "The Body Book", which she co-wrote as a guide to "feed, move, understand and love your amazing body."
"You have to eat, so just eat the right things," Diaz told Daily Mail at the time of her latest book's release. "Food is your friend and you have to embrace your hunger absolutely - you are going to be hungry for the rest of your life. You have to feed your hunger, honour your hunger, because it's not going to go away. I eat constantly. All my friends are like, "Excuse me?" They watch me eating and eating."

The Maddens' salad recipe was re-created by People Magazine listing ingredients such as "4 peaches - pitted and sliced into wedges, 8 oz. burrata or fresh mozzarella torn into pieces, ¼ cup small or torn basil leaves, ¼ cup chopped toasted almonds, Balsamic glaze or vinegar for drizzling, and extra virgin olive oil for drizzling."
To make 4 servings, arrange the peaches and burrata on a large platter and sprinkle basil and almonds. Then drizzle balsamic vinegar (or glaze) and olive oil on top of the salad to complete the delicious healthy dish.
