Peach-Tomato-Cheese Caprese Salad

I love summers for all the fresh salad option it generates. Aren’t there a lot of combinations and flavours possible. And it’s all exciting. I love mixing veggies and fruits up and coming up with new flavours and experimenting with them.

One such gorgeous salad is a Caprese salad. I am a big fan of this simple Italian salad – throw some tomatoes, basil leaves and fresh mozzarella in a bowl. Sprinkle some salt and drizzle some olive oil and there you have a hearty meal in front of you. I love adding peaches to it too. I experimented with grilling all the ingredients and replaced mozzarella with cottage cheese/paneer and the result was equally good. Here’s my recipe for it.
