HEY THERE HOT STUFF!
Keeping your cool during the dog days of Summer is challenging for sure. Some nights the idea of cooking in 100+ heat makes me want to cry. One of my favorite meals this time of year is a Peach Caprese Salad. Nothing too elaborate for this since it is also my go-to desk lunch.
Peach Caprese Salad (for one)
1 peach (sliced)
A handful of cherry tomatoes (or 1 sliced tomato)
4-6 Oz. fresh mozzarella (sliced)
Fresh basil leaves (just tear up as much as you like)
A drizzle of extra virgin olive oil
A drizzle of balsamic vinegar
S & P to taste
Notes: There are no exact measurements here… simply tailor to your liking. Any stone fruit will do… even cherries. Oh, and arugula is nice if basil is not your thing.
