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 the rest of summer!

Need a few more ideas on what to do with all the summer peaches that are about to take over the farmers market – here you go!
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
You have completely convinced me of putting peaches in salad. It is the best!!
Where xan I buy burrata in Dothan, Ala.?
Hi Gaby! How many people does this serve? I’m making it this weekend. It looks amazing!
I have always been afraid of putting fruit in caprese. I think I might have to try it for this one! thanks for sharing!
Delicious!! I added a little honey to it.
Can this be made ahead? Or should it be served immediately?
maybe an hour or so ahead – but you dont want the peaches to oxidize
This looks like the perfect seasonal salad! Delicious.
What would you suggest serving this with if I’m going to use it as a side?
Any grilled fish, chicken or steak recipe from my site!! Or a pasta
This was delicious!! Have to try when peach season is in.
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?
you could do balsamic! white wine vinegar or champagne vinegar would be my first swap choices but balsamic is also delish
Yes please!! The peaches are starting to arrive, so this will be perfect! Bursting with summer flavor.
Looks fabulous for my first company dinner in 3 or 4 months! Serving with Salmon and aspargus!
I make this salad (almost identical) and add cornbread croutons and wow it’s delicious!
This recipe sounds amazing! My husband is not a fan of peaches. Is there a different fruit you would recommend as a substitute?
nectarines? plums? apricots?
This is a delicious summer salad! We added mint and finished it off with a balsamic reduction drizzle. YUM!!
Look delicious! I will be making this next weekend for a family gathering for my grandson’s first birthday party! This will be the first recipe that I use from What’s Gabby Cooking? Thank you!
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.
I wasn’t sure how this was going to taste. But it’s absolutely delicious and so refreshing. Used burrata instead and it was .
This is my go to for all summer events! The perfect side dish that may steal the show!
This salad is always such a hit!!! Any recommendations on what to substitute the red onions with now that there’s a recall on all onions due to salmonella???
I would just omit entirely
This is just another reason to love Summer even more!!
I made this last night for dinner and my husband said he felt like he was at a restaurant. Thanks so much for a great salad! It was the perfect summer side dish.
I made it for a friend gathering. It was a big hit❣️I’ll be making it again. Of course they want the recipe too! Yummy. I’d post a picture but don’t see how.
This salad was amazing, I did add a little honey to the dressing.
Great salad, delicious flavours
I have a tree full of apricots. Do you think they will be good?
Going to attempt to make this constructed on skewers for an appetizer instead of one big salad — anything you would do differently?
Amazing! A friend made this for a small gathering and it was delicious. It was so good that we ate it 2 days in a row, then made our own!
The strongest of 5 stars!! This was so dang delish. I’m making it again tomorrow! So flavorful and bold. I thought tomatoes and peaches? But WHAT A TREAT!
