A different take on the traditional caprese salad. Replace the tomatoes with peaches. I made it first when I was planning a traditional caprese salad and when I took the tomatoes from the bowl I realized they were nectarines, not tomatoes. But hey, just like tomatoes they are red, sweet and somehow sour, so why not? It worked great, and I now make it one purpose, not only when I fail to remember what is in my pantry!
Caprese salad with peaches
Appetisers, Main Dish, Salad
Per one person:
a handfull of lettuce leaves
half a peach or nectarine, sliced
one mozarella ball (good quality, ideally de buffala)
1 tea spoon olive oil
1 tea spoon balsamic vinegar
a few fresh basil leaves
salt, fresh pepper
Place the lettuce in a bowl, then the peach or nectarine
Mozzarella goes on top, either sliced or just torn up.
