Servings 6


  • 8 oz fresh Mozzarella cheese, sliced
  • 2 fresh, ripe Peaches , seed removed, sliced
  • 2-3 pieces tomatoes on the vine,  sliced
  • 8-10 pieces small basil leaves,
  • 1/2 cup Balsamic Vinegar, (use only 3-4 Tablespoons or to taste, if you don't wish to make a balsamic reduction)
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin Olive Oil, or to taste
  • 1 tsp Honey, optional
  • 1/2 tsp Salt, or to taste


  • On a platter that's perfect for serving, arrange the sliced mozzarella cheese, fresh peaches, tomatoes alternately. You can also simply throw them all together, too if in a hurry. Top with fresh basil leaves.
  • If doing a balsamic reduction, place the balsamic vinegar in a small saucepan then bring to a boil using medium heat. Once it starts to boil, adjust heat to medium low and allow to cook until thicken and reduced to about half, 8-10 minutes. Keep an eye as it cooks. Once done, mix with the olive oil, honey (if using) and salt. Adjust to taste. Drizzle on top of the salad just before serving.


For a shortcut, no need to make the balsamic reduction if pressed for time. Reduce the amount of balsamic vinegar to about 3 tablespoons and then mix with the remaining dressing ingredients. Adjust to taste. Drizzle before serving.
