Fresh Peach and Mozzarella Salad

I am soaking up all that is left of summer produce, especially peaches. Fruit in salads has always been one of my favorites, like strawberries and watermelon. I’ve never been a huge fan of bottled salad dressings, so I am also sharing one of my super simple tips for whipping up a salad dressing with what you already have in the kitchen!

DSC_0697For Fresh Peach and Mozzarella Salad, you’ll need:

3 cups fresh spinach

2 Fresh peaches

8 ounces Fresh mozzarella

3 tablespoons Sweet and Hot Mustard

3 tablespoons Balsamic vinegar

1 tablespoon Olive oil

 

DSC_0698To make this easy dressing, combine the mustard, balsamic vinegar and olive oil in a bowl.

 

Sweet and Hot Mustard Dressing_Natalie ParmoreWhisk together with a fork until smooth. The sweet and hot mustard adds a little bite to the dressing, I think pairs well with the cool peaches and creamy mozzarella.

Pretty Peach_Natalie ParamoreIt’s a purdy little peach! I sliced the peaches thin so that they were easier to eat but still looked pretty on the plate as opposed to being diced.

Plate the spinach first, then add the peaches and mozzarella. Drizzle with dressing and serve!

Peach and Mozzarella Salad_Natalie ParamoreSo easy and delicious! Perfect to add to a meal this holiday weekend, plus it keeps things light which is always nice as we soak up the last rays of summer… or if you’re in Texas we’ve got at least another good month of bikini season 😉

Enjoy!

Why, figs of course! This sweet, temperamental fruit is in season right now. Figs are perfect as a pizza topping or in a salad. They are fresh or dried as a snack.

So pretty! I love figs with fresh mozzarella. And that’s some basil from my herb garden ! Which I’m proud to report is still alive!

I made this pizza crust. I topped the grilled pizza crust with olive oil and my favorite cilantro pesto. Then load up your pizza with the fresh basil, mozzarella and of course, figs!

Pop that in the oven and broil until everything is nice and melty.
