Grilled Peach Caprese
I realized the beauty that is a good caprese salad the first time I traveled to Italy. Sliced mozzarella, fresh tomatoes, and basil, drizzled with good olive oil and sprinkled with coarse sea salt and pepper. Pure heaven, I tell you. But I have a confession. I don’t really like tomatoes. And being a food blogger/nutritionist, I really don’t like to admit that, but who can we be if not ourselves? So I’m Sarah, I don’t like tomatoes, and for that reason, today we’re making Grilled Peach Caprese.

Let’s talk about the components of this caprese. We’re sticking to a few caprese fundamentals, good mozzarella and basil, but we’re swapping the tomatoes for peaches. We’ll grill the peaches to slightly char them and bring out some really tasty flavors, and we’ll finish with a quick basil and lime sauce. Eat it hot off the grill or eat it cold, stacked into fancy towers or just thrown on a plate. It’s summer and anything goes! Let’s grill.
