Peach and Arugula Caprese Salad

Peach and Arugula Caprese Salad

Ingredients:

  • 4 ripe peaches thinly sliced
  • 4 cups arugula leaves
  • Fresh mozzarella slices – about 10-12 slices
  • 4 tbsp finely cut shallot
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • Balsamic vinegar
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • Fresh basil leaves – 4-6 julienned

Directions:

  • Combine the shallot and garlic with 1/2 tsp salt and set aside. This mellows out the strong onion and garlic flavors.
  • Evenly spread the arugula leaves on a platter.
  • Place the fresh mozzarella slices over the arugula.
  • Next, place the peach slices over the mozzarella.  Sprinkle the onion garlic mixture over the peaches and drizzle balsamic vinegar and olive oil.  Sprinkle salt and pepper.
  • Top with fresh basil leaves and serve immediately.
