This recipe is less a recipe and more of a formula for a summery fruit salad. Take mozzarella — buffalo, burrata or ciliegine all work great — and combine with your favorite stone fruit — apricot, plum, peach, or nectarine — and top with sweet herbs — mint, tarragon, or basil — alongside some olive oil, vinegar, and salt. This easy summer salad using peaches is produce-forward, fresh, and light.
Caprese is such an iconic dish, and the classic tomato-mozzarella-basil salad is so perfect.
My only idea for improving upon the classic Caprese is to swap out — or add in!! — fresh, summer peaches.
Like I said before, this recipe is less a recipe and more of a formula for a summery fruit salad. Using peaches in salads is my go-to, veteran move every summer.
To make a peach caprese, just combine mozzarella — buffalo, burrata — and combine with peaches, add basil and top with olive oil and salt.
