ImageI love an in-season peach. Eating an out of season peach is just self-cruelty.

My favorite peach recipe is not a pie. It’s not a cobbler. It’s a savory salad.

Savory? Peaches? WTF?

It’s true.

Here’s the recipe:

4-6 yellow peaches, ripe and in-season. Cut into chunks.

1 cup of torn basil. Or chopped…whatever’s clever.

1 cup of fresh mozzarella. If it’s not in water, it’s not fresh. No dry hard stuff posing as fresh mozzarella. I like the little 1 inch sized balls floating in water from Trader Joe’s.  (can’t remember the name of them, sorry…)

Olive oil.


Fresh ground pepper.

Gently mix the peaches, mozzarella, basil together. Drizzle olive oil over the salad and gently mix again. Salt and pepper to taste.

That’s it. So freaking good.

Hooray peaches!
