Well this is it. The most amazing caprese salad I've had and it's a grilled peach avocado caprese salad with a balsamic reduction and grilled lemons. It's so easy though!

Ingredients

  • 1 Cup Balsamic Vinegar
  • 1 Teaspoon Sugar
  • Olive oil for grilling plus more for drizzling over the salad
  • 1 Large Peach sliced in thick wedges
  • 2 Large Ripe Tomatoes, Sliced
  • 1 Ball Fresh Mozzarella Cheese Sliced
  • 1-2 Lemons sliced
  • 1 Large Avocado Sliced *see note
  • 1/2 Cup Mozzarella Pearls halved
  • 1 Tub Arugula or Arugula Mix
  • Sea Salt or Sea Salt Flakes * see note
  • Fresh Ground Black Pepper
  • 1 Handful Fresh Basil chopped *see this post on how to [chiffonade]

Instructions

  • Place the balsamic vinegar in a skillet or small saucepan and sprinkle in the sugar.
  • Cook on medium heat until it comes to a boil, then quickly turn down to a simmer, and cook until reduced by half, about 10-20 minutes, but watch in case your stove cooks faster. The vinegar should coat the back of a spoon once it's ready.
  • Set aside in the fridge to cool.
  • Brush the flesh of the lemons and peaches with olive oil.
  • Heat a grill to medium high heat and place the fruit right on the grates.
  • Cook for 1-3 minutes or until marks appear, remove the lemons, then carefully flip the peaches using tongs.
  • Set aside on a plate to cool. We place ours in the fridge.
  • Fill a large salad platter, not bowl, with the greens and assemble by arranging the fruits over the top with the mozzarella, a drizzle of olive oil, balsamic reduction and salt and pepper.
  • Serve immediately.

Notes

Never slice and place your avocado until right before serving. Look in our post for our preferred brands of salt for this dish. Salt makes a world of a difference when it's good salt and it's not expensive!
