Wow this salad is almost like a dessert! The sweetness of the peach and the tang of tomato really blend so well. The basil adds an additional layer of flavor and is always delicious with peaches. I changed the dressing to a raspberry vinegarette that was a good option and reduced calories since I did not use oil. Read More

Absolutely make it again. Changed slightly. I used a balsamic reduction. No oil. No salt. I stacked a large tomato slice large fresh mozzarella slice fresh basil leaf a slice of peach another basil leaf and a large toothpick through it all. Great presentation. The peach was perfect intaste. Drizzled balsamic reduction ove the stack just before serving. Looked more like the traditional caprese salad. Read More

Pretty good result. Absolutely requires great tomatoes which turned this into a 4 's instead of the 5 it would have achieved. Used ripe peaches to good effect but will likely try to use the jarred mangoes I used in a steak recipe earlier. Used avocadoes and a great olive oil. Read More

I sliced the tomatoes too thin. It was hard to have everything stay neat like picture. But all liked salad. Used a dark syrupy balsamic vinegar. Also did again with nectaries andwas just as good. Read More

Tried it once without dressing and thought it was missing something. I believe my peaches at Kroger were subpar and would like fresh peaches next time. Read More

I made this exactly as written except for the 8 oz. of cheese. I don't know if it was the size of my fruit but 8 oz. just seeemed like a bit too much. So I cut the amount down a bit. It was still very good. Read More
