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 lb. peaches, sliced into wedges, then cut crosswise (frozen may be used)
- 8 oz. part skimmed, fresh mozzarella cheese, cut into 3/4-inch cubes

- 2 tsp. rice vinegar
- Pinch salt
- Freshly ground black pepper, optional
