There are very few things that I love more than summer peach season. Cakes, pies, salads... I'm talking peach everything. If you really want to start your summer off right, you can find more of my favorite peach recipes here! Tip - The peach bundt cake is a MUST!

When I say this is a five minute salad, it really is a five minute salad. This salad is so refreshing and delicious that it has become a staple at our house during peach season! It makes the perfect memorable side salad for cookouts, luncheons, Mother's Day, Memorial Day and so much more. I prefer to serve mine chilled, but when you taste how incredibly these flavors mix you may not care what temperature it is!

 

Peach Caprese Salad Ingredients

  • 4 peaches, sliced & cold
  • 8 ounces mozzarella slices
  • Basil leaves, fresh
  • ½ cup white balsamic vinegar
  • Salt & Pepper, to taste

 

White Balsamic Vinegar vs. Balsamic Vinegar

The process of making vinegar is very similar to that of making wine. The grape pressings are simmered for hours resulting in a syrup that is placed into barrels and aged for years. An authentic balsamic vinegar is aged no less than 12 years and up to 25 years, while a white balsamic is aged up to only one year to retain its lighter flavor.

The differences between white balsamic vinegar and balsamic vinegar are:

  • Darker balsamic is slightly sweeter
  • Darker balsamic has more of a syrupy texture
  • White Balsamic has a softer flavor
  • White Balsamic has a fresher/cleaner aftertaste
  • White Balsamic is lightly golden in color and doesn't discolor what it is poured onto like a dark balsamic

 

When To Use White Balsamic Vinegar

White balsamic vinegar is an excellent choice in the spring and summer as it pairs wonderfully with the fresh ingredients of these seasons! Some of my favorite uses include the following:

  • Drizzle over fruit such as watermelon or cantaloupe
  • Toss with grilled vegetables like asparagus or zucchini
  • Drizzle over a goat cheese crostini
  • Add to a fresh pasta with salt, pepper and lemon juice

 

How to Make a Peach Caprese Salad

  1. Slice peaches and mozzarella.
  2. Place peach slices, mozzarella slices, and basil leaves in a large bowl or onto a serving platter.
  3. Drizzle the white balsamic vinegar over top and sprinkle with salt & pepper.

{Hello 30!} When Michael asked how I was feeling about this birthday I said, “I’ve always wanted to be in my 30s!”. Blame it on Jennifer Garner’s thirty flirty and thriving or the fact that I’ve had the personality of a 30 year old woman since I was 18 😂, but today I’m living the dream! My twenties were full of joy, discovery, and so much growth. By the grace of God, I became a stronger and more confident person than I ever thought I could be. It’s hard for me to think about the past decade of my life without tearing up and every bit of it has to do with the man beside me. My best friend, confidant, cheerleader, champion, bodyguard, and simply everything! So to you, Michael Cermak, thank you for lifting me up and making all of my dreams come true! Here’s to 30! 
.
P.S. We’ve been falling in love with Georgetown/DC the past week and decided to hire someone to take some pictures of us together after seeing how many I have of just me from our other trips this year 😂 Thank you @cheyennemacielphotography for this sneak peak! If you’re in the DC area you must use her!
