  1. In a glass measuring cup or jar, add vinegar, mustard, honey, 1/2 tsp kosher salt and black pepper. Whisk in olive oil, taste, and add more salt or pepper if needed. Set aside.
  2. Preheat grill to medium high. Meanwhile, use a serrated knife to remove crust from the loaf of bread and cut into 1-inch thick slices. Brush both sides of bread with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and black pepper. Grill the bread for about 1 minute on each side, or until browned and charred in spots. Transfer to a plate, rub with garlic halves, and let cool.
  3. Slice grilled bread into 1-inch thick strips then tear into bite sized pieces. Place croutons in a large bowl along with peaches, cucumber, olives, basil and mint. Toss with two-thirds of dressing, taste, and add more dressing or seasoning if needed. 
  4. Transfer to a large serving platter. Tear the burrata into bite sized pieces and scatter over salad. Enjoy!
