Bacon-Wrapped Peach Caprese

A little sweet, a little savory, and a lot of enticing flavors in this new spin on a warm weather favorite.

Ingredients

Caprese

  • One bunch fresh basil
  • 8 ripe yellow peaches
  • 4 ripe tomatoes
  • 8 strips bacon
  • 3 large fresh mozzarella balls
  • Sea salt
  • Black pepper

Balsamic Vinegar Reduction

Steps

Caprese

  1. Halve four peaches and wrap each half in a bacon strip. In a cast-iron pan, cook bacon-wrapped peaches until bacon is cooked and peaches are tender. Set aside to cool to room temperature while you assemble the salad.
  2. For the salad, thinly slice the tomatoes, the four remaining peaches and the mozzarella. Layer all the peaches, mozzarella and tomatoes in alternating order, then top liberally with balsamic reduction. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve immediately.

Balsamic Vinegar Reduction

  2. Reduce heat and simmer until liquid has reduced and thickened. Set aside to cool.
