Peach Caprese Salad

Hi guys!

Happy Monday!  How was your weekend?

The hubs birthday is today so we ended up celebrating this weekend because having your birthday on a Monday is never as fun.  Other than that, I spent much of the weekend playing catch up.  Sadly, it did involve some time cleaning out the garage.  There was not nearly as much summer playing as I would have liked, but I guess you have to be a grown up sometimes.

Big surprise here, my favorite part of the weekend was the food.  The hubs loves peaches and caprese salad so I ended up spending some quality time in the kitchen this weekend creating this Peach Caprese Salad for him.

You see, I can’t seem to get enough of these no cook, basically just chop up all the yummy stuff recipes lately.

Since I’ve been focusing so much lately on easy cooking, I was excited to hear about a new product that makes safe kitchen clean up a breeze. I went to Target to find Clorox Green Works Pump ‘N Clean!

Pump ‘N Clean is with the other natural cleaners, along with the full line of Green Works products.  The full line is only available at Target.

Green Works Pump ‘N Clean is food safe and great for simple vegetable recipes like my Peach Caprese Salad because you can keep your work station and knife clean between cutting veggies (not meat or seafood.)  I cook so much that I HAVE to clean up along the way or I end up with what looks like a cyclone in my kitchen.  Literally, a cyclone.  I feel safe that this product is shockingly powerful and naturally derived.

All I do is pump the top with one hand!

And wipe off the area I’m working in, even my knives.

It allows me to cut up all the components of this Peach Caprese Salad without making any mess at all!   It makes meal time so much easier and the neat freak in me is over the moon happy.

To assemble the salad, I just layer the peaches, tomatoes, mozzarella and basil on the plate.  Carefully fanning them out in a circle.

The final touch is a drizzle of rich olive oil and sweet balsamic.  I also like a hearty sprinkle of sea salt and fresh cracked pepper.

I can take my plate to the table without worrying about cleaning up a big mess.   I’ve already cleaned up along the way with Pump ‘N Clean!

Luckily the hubs was impressed with this new creation. He gave it two thumbs up.  The peaches right now are to die for!

Peach Caprese Salad along with Green Works Pump ‘N Clean are both new family favorites!

    I’ve never seen peaches and caprese salad together. Great idea, and happy birthday to your husband!

    Perfect! Great minds think alike, I made the same salad a couple weeks ago and it is scheduled for next week! It might get bumped with a few other posts that popped up. I hate that I have to make everything so far in advance in the summer with our crazy schedule. I shared a salad a couple weeks ago and was suppose to share it last week but it got bumped and I have a couple people upset I haven’t posted it yet. :/ No more sneak peeks I guess. Now I want the salad now but still waiting on my flat of peaches to ripen!

    I love traditional Carprese salad but I never thought to add fruit. Brilliant idea!

    This looks so good! I’ve been making my own version of peach caprese for many years– I got the recipe out of Sunset magazine and have never gone back to regular caprese since. I’ll have to try the Green Works to keep my kitchen clean.. I need all the help I can get!

    Hey Julie, I noticed you like to use the all cotten knit dishcloths. Me too, but I had trouble, especially this time of year with them quickly getting an odor from bacteria. I hate a stinky dishcloth! Anyway, a neat tip for you or anyone else and it works like a charm…. After you are done using the dishcloth each day, put the wet dishcloth in the microwave for 30 seconds. Be careful when you take it out. It will be HOT, but all bacteria that can cause odor is dead and gone!

    Two recipes today! We are spoiled 🙂 This sounds amazing! I am loving all the peach recipes, it is one of the best fruits, and I would have never thought to turn it into a caprese, but wow, I bet it is so good! Thanks for sharing, and thanks for hosting 😀
