Course Appetizer
Cuisine American
Prep Time 10 minutes
Marinating Time 30 minutes
Servings 4


  • 2 large peaches, sliced and quartered
  • 2 cups quartered cherry tomatoes seeded
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tsp white sugar
  • 3 tbsp white balsamic vinegar
  • 6 oz fresh mozzarella torn
  • 2 tbsp chopped basil fresh
  • Sea salt to garnish


  1. Combine the tomatoes, peaches, white balsamic vinegar, salt, and sugar together in a mixing bowl. Let marinate for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.

  2. Remove the tomatoes and peaches from the marinade draining well. Place onto a serving platter.

  3. Strain any remaining seeds from the marinating liquid using a fine-mesh strainer. Measure 3/4 cup of the strained liquid and add it to a small mixing bowl. Slowly drizzle 1/2 cup olive oil into the marinating liquid whisking constantly to form a dressing.

  4. Add torn mozzarella to the tomatoes and peaches. Drizzle 1/4 to 1/2 cup of the dressing over top of the salad. Top with basil, an extra glug of olive oil, and sea salt & serve!

Recipe Notes

The marinating liquid combined with olive oil creates more dressing than is needed for this recipe.  Reserve the extra and use it in place of balsamic dressing in any other salad!
