Peach and Basil Salad with Fresh Mozzarella

This content was last updated on December 19, 2019

Our delicious salad marries summer’s juicy, sweet peaches and aromatic basil with slightly briny, velvety fresh mozzarella. This quick to fix, simple salad has an enticing bouquet – peaches are related to roses after all – and lots of vitamin C, beta-carotene, calcium and fiber. It would be peachy-keen to serve as a light main dish or side salad at your next summer soirée.

  • 1 cup loosely packed fresh basil, torn into medium pieces
  • 2 tsp. extra virgin olive oil
