Peach Caprese Salad and Just Peachy Recipe Round-Up!

DSC_6870-001

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.

DSC_6883-001

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.

    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.

They are going to die over this! I love all of your peach recipes! So so yummy! Peach season is my favorite!
