Peach Caprese Salad-7224

This Peach Caprese Salad is summer’s quintessential dish. It highlights summer’s best bounty: Southern vine-ripened tomatoes, fresh Georgia peaches and basil from that herb pot on the patio that has grown exponentially in the last month.

Everyone loves a fresh Caprese salad. This Italian favorite is taken to a whole new level by the simple addition of sweet summer peaches.

Creamy mozzarella, sweet peaches, hearty tomatoes and crisp basil all compliment each other with a splash of balsamic vinegar and good olive oil followed by fresh cracked salt and pepper.

This dish really let’s the ingredients take center stage so it is super important to buy really fresh locally grown components. I got my tomatoes from the Amish at The Franklin Farmers’ Market (and I know they will only get better as summer gets warmer), peaches from The Peach Truck (my absolute fave) and basil from my back yard.
