We hosted a small lunch on Labor Day at our house and I always like having a salad to balance a meal. Since Hudson has been loving peaches I decided to try a different take on the typical tomato/mozzarella caprese salad.
This salad was super easy to make and very yummy!
Here is what you will need:
Ingredients serving for 12
1 lb fresh mozzarella
pinch of salt
pinch of pepper
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 cup fresh basil
Step 1: Cut up peaches and fresh mozzarella into cubes.
Step 2: Chop up basil leaves
Step 3: In a large bowl combine peaches, fresh mozzarella and basil and toss with the tablespoon of extra version olive oil along with salt & pepper.
Now you can leave good enough alone here and simply drizzle this salad with balsamic vinegar or you can get a little fancier and make your own balsamic reduction, which is also super easy.
1 1/2 cups balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup honey
Step 1: Simply mix balsamic vinegar and honey together in a small saucepan and place on high heat. Bring to a boil and let it boil for around 15 mins and you should be left 3/4 cups of balsamic reduction.
Use as a dressing on the salad.
