Peach Tomato Caprese Salads all summer long. That’s the name of the game!

I think we’ve all probably had a caprese by now right? It’s the most epic combo of juicy ripe tomatoes and soft fresh mozzarella. Match made in heaven. But add some perfectly ripe summer peaches to the mix and it takes things up a notch!! Hello Peach Tomato Caprese!

And let’s just take a moment to discuss how you should be picking peaches. In my book, it’s the same way as an avocado. I tend to buy them a few days ahead of when I actually need them. That way I can buy them when they are still pretty hard, and then let ripen on my own kitchen counter. This way ensures that they aren’t getting manhandled at the market by dozens of other humans! And you want to eat them just when they become a little soft with some give! Too much give means it’s almost gone too far – so check on the regular and make this salad.

I feel like this Peach Tomato Caprese is without a doubt the right move this coming Father’s Day weekend!

    This salad looks so scrumptious. I think I’m going to try this recipe, but instead of mozzarella cheese, I’ll use burrata. Tearing it up and arranging it over this peach and tomato salad must be absolutely fantastic. Thanks for the inspiration, Gaby!
    Love your cookbook by the way

    This recipe is so delicious and easy to make! I’ve made it multiple times and every time it has been a hit. I would definitely recommend this for barbecues, potlucks, just a random Sunday, any day will do!

    Is there a good sub for red wine vinegar? Would white balsamic vinegar work?

    • Gaby

      you could do balsamic! white wine vinegar or champagne vinegar would be my first swap choices but balsamic is also delish

    I have made this recipe twice now in the last week. It is delicious and so easy. I have had nothing but compliments. It would be a easy dish to bring to a backyard bbq. This recipe will be something I look forward to in the summer, when I see the peaches in the markets.
