This is my favorite meal of the season. I discovered it at a restaurant in Baltimore and made it first thing when I got home. It’s a creative twist on a traditional tomato caprese salad. There’s not much to it and yet the flavors impress. Although I’ll always love the original, this peach version is a stunner.

Ingredients: (2 salads)
2 peaches (or nectarines)
Buffalo mozzarella
1/2 cup chopped basil
1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar, divided
1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil, divided
1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
1/2 teaspoon pepper, divided

Directions:  Chop the peaches and basil and set aside.
