Peach Caprese Salad

Peach Caprese Salad

Brianna Weedman

Caprese salad is good, but swap out tomatoes for peaches and add bacon and you've got yourself a gourmet meal! Add avocado to really push this dish up a level!

 

Ingredients:

- 2-3 peaches, white or yellow 

- 2-3 leaves kale (in this week's Harvest Box)

- 12 slices fresh mozzarella 

- Bunch of basil 

- Bacon, chopped and cooked

- 2 avocados, thinly sliced (optional)

- Balsamic vinegar 

- Fresh ground salt and pepper 

 

Directions:

- Start by chopping the bacon and cooking it either in the oven or on the stove 

- While bacon is cooking, slice the peaches in half, remove the pit, then in half again 

- Remove bacon from oven and let drain on a paper towel

- Assemble your caprese. Lay two slices of peaches next to each other on a plate, place a portion on kale on each slice, layer on the fresh mozzarella, then thenoptional avocado, then basil, then bacon. Repeat these layers until you run out of peach slices. 

- Drizzle with balsamic vinegar, then top with several grinds of salt and pepper.

 

This makes a great side, a fun dish for a potluck, or a quick meal for two!
