The best thing about summer is the bounty of fresh produce! If you’re a fan of caprese salad, I think you’ll like this summery twist on the classic caprese salad made with fresh, juicy peaches!
If you haven’t tried peaches and summer tomatoes together in a salad, you don’t know what you’re missing.
Best of all, no recipe is required for this salad that you can enjoy as a sweet and savory side dish, appetizer, or light summer dinner if you don’t feel like cooking.
Gather your fresh peaches, mozzarella, fresh basil, and tomatoes of choice~ I used some heirloom cherry tomatoes from the farmers market. Make sure you add some balsamic glaze!
You can make you own balsamic glaze by combining sugar and good balsamic vinegar and heating it until it’s thickened and syrupy, but the bottle version is perfect for the lazy days of summer. You can find balsamic glaze at most grocery stores next to the specialty vinegars.
Slice or tear your fresh mozzarella and layer with sliced peaches and quartered or sliced tomatoes. Add some fresh basil, kosher salt and fresh ground black pepper and a drizzle of balsamic glaze. Serve immediately.

I especially like the sound of fresh peaches, heirloom tomatoes,mozzarella, and balsamic glaze.
Your table is so pretty and I love your Thoreau quote.
Have a great day. You started mine off nicely.
Can’t chat right now Mary, I’m on my way to the store to buy peaches!!!
I must comment first on your ending quote, Mary dear, and tell you how much I loved it! You’re such a peach yourself, and I can’t wait to make the peach and tomato caprese salad.
That salad looks perfect for a summer luncheon. Love peaches this year.
I just made this salad last weekend!! Us southern gals think alike! Not only delicious but pretty presentation.
I am oozing with fresh tomatoes. They are covering every counter in my house! And in fridge. Have already put up 12 pints and 2 qts of red tomato relish-great on pork and fresh peas- and frozen gallons and gallons! Not griping mind you but need some different tomato recipes…got any??? Making super good risotto/tomato pie tonite!
Love Caprise salad, never had it with peaches..I like peaches but not with the fuzzy skin..will have to give them a quick blanch and get rid of that peel..but they all look delicious!! The tableware too…thanks for sharing!! It is a PEACH 🍑🍑🍑 of a post!!! ❤️❤️❤️
Everything looks so yummy. Must try this as soon as our peaches are “in”. Having my own garden party this evening but trying to decide whether to chance the predicted rain, or just keep on my plan. Canopy with screened sides is up and lit. Just waiting. Have a great day and thank you for your inspirations.
I am so loving all of these “peachy” recipes…pinning!

Makes me even more upset that we only had about six peaches set on the tree this year! Wow, I am pinning, plus taking a photo on my phone so I remember to make this for one of the girl’s lunches! They are going to die over this! I love all of your peach recipes! So so yummy! Peach season is my favorite!
Off to the Farmers Market I go!
EVERY one of these I want to make! The salad will be dinner tonight!! I eat a nectaine, a banana and some blueberries in skim milk almost everyday for my breakfast. LOVE peaches and nectarines! Fresh fruits and veggies in summer are fabulous! Thanks for telling us where to find the glaze.
