Oh friends, you MUST try Caprese Two-Ways! There is no arguing that traditional caprese salad is a summer staple, but pairing fresh peaches with soft mozzarella and in-season basil is a total game-changer. I almost feel like I am cheating on tomatoes, but peaches may be my new favorite way to enjoy caprese salad! I recently made this for a family dinner and it was a huge hit. It is a perfect appetizer or side dish to bring to a cookout, dinner, girls’ night, or party–easy, fresh, and delicious!
A lot of caprese salads are served with a balsamic glaze on top. Glazes are generally high in sugar, so I used Tessemae’s Balsamic Vinaigrette instead. This reduced the overall amount of sugar without compromising taste and allowed the natural sweetness of the tomatoes and peaches to shine through. I buy Tessemae’s from Whole Foods–it can be found in the produce area.
Be sure to add this to your menu within the next few weeks while peaches, tomatoes, and basil are still in season! YUM!
