One of my favorite salads to order is a Caprese Salad the simplicity of the salad is what I love so much about it. I love making it just about as much as I love eating it because it’s as easy and slicing up fresh mozzarella and tomatoes but looks beautiful on a plate.

I came across this recipe a while back and immediately thought wow that is genius I need to have that.

I picked up the ingredients this week but last minute in opted to grill my peaches and tomatoes to add a little depth of flavor – and how gorgeous are those grill marks?! Talk about a pretty salad!

Normally I drizzle some reduced balsamic vinegar on my Caprese Salad,  but I skipped it and just cracked some fresh pepper and kept it simple.  It was out of this world delicious.

Ingredients:
6oz. fresh mozzarella cheese, sliced
1 – 2  sliced peaches {if they’re not perfectly ripe no worries the grill will sweeten them up in no time}
1 – 2 tomatoes {sliced thick}
fresh cracked pepper

Directions: 

  1. Grill your peaches and tomatoes for about a minute or two on each side – just long enough to get grill marks. Don’t move them around turn them only once so they don’t break apart.  Layer mozzarella cheese slices with peaches, tomatoes, and basil.
  2. Crack some fresh black pepper and enjoy. If you prefer adding a reduced balsamic vinagrette and olive oil you certainly can add that.
