Watermelon and Peach Caprese

We’re big fans of summer fruit so when my wife found this recipe we had to try it. It’s great for lunch or a light dinner and really simple to make. All you need is seedless watermelon, two large yellow peaches, a ball of fresh mozzarella, olive oil, balsamic glaze, kosher salt and fresh basil leafs.


Slice the watermelon into wedges or circles, about a half-inch thick. Slice two peaches into rounds, and then thinly slice the mozzarella.
On a plate, arrange a slice of watermelon, peach, mozzarella and a basil leaf. Repeat to make a taller stack and add one more slice of watermelon on top. Drizzle the stack with olive oil and balsamic glaze. Sprinkle a bit of kosher salt and top it off with another piece of basil.
Prep time, 20 minutes. Makes four servings.

    I’d love this…but no decent peaches in Costa Rica so I’ll wait until i visit mother in England in August to make it for both of us…and I’m sending it to a friend in South Africa – home of the best peaches in the world!

    I’m going to have to try this! My husband and I love traditional caprese salads, with the tomatoes, basil and fresh mozzarella, but this twist sounds wonderful. Especially since watermelon and peaches are two of my favorite fruits! Thanks!

    Sounds great…with a little wine spritzer, on my yacht…oh, that’s right, I don’t have a yacht. Well, it sounds awesome sitting out in the front garden with my sweetie. Thanks for posting George.
