Summer Caprese Salad

May 17, 2013

This caprese salad recipe from european cutie has a fruity twist. In addition to classic summer tomatoes, mozzarella and basil, slices of sweet peaches are layered in the salad.  You can keep the peaches raw or for a difference in flavor and texture, grill them for a few minutes on each side. This combination is also delicious in the form of a panini.
