Tomato, Peach and Mozzarella Salad

Time for some recipes from my last demo/tasting at Blooming Glen Farm a couple of weeks ago.  It's always great to use the great ingredients that the farm provides--especially this time of year.  (Just love tomatoes!)

This salad is a bit of a play on a traditional Caprese Salad--tomato, basil, mozzarella, olive oil.  But this includes some other flavors--notably, another great summer flavor: peach.  Compared to the tomato, there isn't much peach in the salad, but it's so tasty to get a little burst of that sweet fruit every now and then while eating the salad. 

For the best flavor and look, use tomatoes in a variety of colors.  It doesn't get much simpler than this.  And it doesn't get much tastier!

1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
