No reviews

Fresh local peaches and nectarines everywhere!! This recipe makes enough to feed a crowd. If you want to make a smaller batch: half the recipe of peaches and mozzarella and use half of the dressing (do not half the dressing recipe just use less on the salad).



Zest and juice of two large oranges

1 cup fresh chopped basil leaves

1 1/2 cups high quality extra virgin olive oil

3 TBS of apple cider vinegar (sherry vinegar works well too)

3 Tsp. Poppy seeds

Salt and pepper to taste



In a large mason jar add all the ingredients below then shake vigorously. Keeps in fridge up to one week.

In a large serving bowl cut and mix:

1. 10 large ripe peaches or nectarines

2. 3-4 Cups fresh mozzarella cheese (cubed)

Pour dressing over peaches, mozzarella and arugula (if desired), toss, then serve!
