Peach Caprese Salad
Caprese salad is traditionally made with slices of tomatoes and mozzarella adorned with a simple dressing of extra-virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar. We wanted to preserve the simplicity of this salad while swapping in another juicy summer gem: ripe fresh peaches. While balsamic muddied the fruit’s brightness, we found that fresh lemon juice enhanced and complemented the sweetness of the peaches. To make the salad cohesive, we tossed the peach slices with the simple lemon-and-oil vinaigrette before assembling the salad, ensuring that each bite was fully coated and seasoned.
