As always, when you’re cooking a recipe with minimal ingredients, the quality of the ingredients is super important. This is the time to splurge on the heirloom tomatoes, the juiciest peaches and the freshest basil.
Variations and Serving Options for Peach and Tomato Caprese
You can serve Peach and Tomato Caprese as a side dish or a salad course. Or spoon the topping over grilled bread for a lovely bruschetta. Another option is to slice the cheese and tomatoes and lightly grill the peaches before assembling. Or you you can skip the basil leaves, oil and vinegar, and toss with Easy Basil Pesto. Want to add in a few chopped nuts? Go for it.
It’s damn delicious.

*I had peach vinegar because I’m fancy, but balsamic vinegar, white wine vinegar or even plain vinegar will all work. You just want a little hit of acid to balance the sweetness of the peaches.
