Peach And Heirloom Tomato Caprese Salad
I found this yummy recipe in Tosca Reno's Eat Clean Diet Cookbook 2.
It is delicious and you want to eat it all!! This recipe is best during the summer months when the peaches and heirloom tomatoes are in season and at their peak. Have the fun for me was going out the garden and picking the fresh basil and tomatoes!
1 Tbsp white balsamic vinegar 2 large ripe peaches,pits
1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice removed and sliced
1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil (EVOO) 2 fresh mozzarella balls,ovolini-
1/8 tsp sea salt shaped(egg shaped),sliced
Pinch freshly ground black pepper Small handful fresh basil
2 large ripe heirloom tomatoes,sliced leaves, thinly sliced
1. In small bowl, whisk together vinegar,lemon juice,EVOO,salt and pepper.
Set aside. To assemble salad, layer sliced tomatoes,peaches and mozzarella,
fanning out across a serving platter. Drizzle with dressing and sprinkle with
basil leaves thinly sliced. I left my basil whole as I love the taste of it.
