In addition to having an ingredient theme each week, this week being peaches, there seems to be another theme you may have recognized. That is an endless discussion of ingredients that I hate… and won’t budge on, and one of those that has come up again and again are tomatoes. But have no fear, I had found a much better replacement for tomatoes for my caprese – grilled peaches! Once you try my version, I am guessing you will have no reason to ever look back!
And if I may pat myself on the back one more time, look at those grill marks! This year I bought a small grill pan from Target and it was 100% worth it! If you don’t have an actual grill at home, I highly recommend it!
Grilled Peach Caprese
a simple caprese salad recipe that features grilled peaches instead of tomatoes
- 2 peaches
- Cooking Spray
- 4 oz fresh mozzarella
- 8-14 basil leaves
- balsamic glaze
Wash the peaches and basil.
Slice peaches. I got about 4 slice per peach
Spray a grill pan with cooking spray. Put on medium heat.
Add the peach slices. Cook for 4 minutes, than rotate each slice slightly to get cross marks. Cook for another 4 minutes
Slice the mozzarella into thin slices.
Rotate the peaches, mozzarella and basil into a pattern of your choosing.
Serve with balsamic glaze if desired.
