Caprese Grilled Peach Salad

This is summer food at its finest… My Caprese Grilled Peach Salad recipe.

Hi guys,

I’ve been wanting to try grilled peaches for a long time and I’m not sure what was holding me back.  I finally got around to grilling peaches and holy smokes– I’m addicted.  If you haven’t tried them yet promise me you will give them a shot. They are little bites of foodie joy!

I decided to combine my newfound love of grilled peaches and a delicious salad that is really all things wonderful about summer on a plate. My Caprese Grilled Peach Salad recipe and I must try before the end of summer.

The star of this salad are the grilled peaches, but the simple secondary ingredients are the perfect complement to this summer fruit.

I kept this Caprese Grilled Peach Salad recipe simple only using fresh arugula, toasted pine nuts, fresh mozzarella, my Basil Vinaigrette Dressing from Tuesday and a balsamic glaze.

If you’re feeling fancy splurge on some fresh burrata for a simply sinful experience.

Either way… there’s something dreamy about the way the caramelized peaches, creamy mozzarella, earthy pine nuts, herby basil vinaigrette and the slightly sweet, yet rich balsamic glaze come together.  It’s honestly a surprising combination, but one of my favorite recipes are made in a long time.

    All of my favorite things. Arugula (yummy) peaches, pine nuts, balsamic glaze. What’s not to love. Oh and of course the Mozzarella. This is going to be a favorite of mine. I’m sure of it. Thanks Julie!

  18. Grilled peaches are really fantastic!

    Oh this looks amazing! I’ve only ever grilled pineapple and have no idea why I haven’t tried peaches. I love mozzarella but this WOULD be so good with burrata too, I have such a hard time finding it at my grocery store though, UH!

    This sounds so delicious! I have never tried grilling peaches, but have heard they are amazing. Also I love peaches in general, so can’t really go wrong with this. Hope you have a great day.

    There is nothing better in this world than a perfect peach. Absolutely nothing better. Though I will allow a drizzle of balsamic reduction. Because that makes it better (but I stand by my first statement. Don’t ask how that works, just go with it)
