Peach Salad with Fresh Mozzarella and Honey Almonds

When you think of summer what comes to mind? I think of a lot of things….swimming, vacations,  kids home from school. However, the foodie side of me thinks of all of the fruits that are ripe and juicy and just begging to be eaten. There’s nothing like juice running down your chin from the fresh peach you have just picked off a tree.

When we first moved to Gilbert, Arizona, we built a home way far out among the vast farm lands. We were one of the first homes to be built in a large community so there was nothing but green fields surrounding us. We would count down the days until Mother’s Day when the peaches would be ripe enough to pick. We would take our straw baskets to the grove of trees down the road and pick our own peaches.  They were perfectly plump and delicious. I would pay our money at the tiny little stand, go home and immediately begin making every peach thing I could think of. My house was filled with peach pie, cobbler, and fresh salads. We just couldn’t get enough!

I discovered that stone fruits such as peaches, nectarines, plums, cherries, etc. are not just for dessert but are the perfect accompaniment to a summer salad. This Summer Peach Fresh Mozzarella Salad is what summer is all about. Fresh sweet peaches, crisp nectarines, tangy plums, creamy fresh mozzarella, sugared almonds all on top of bright green spring mix or romaine lettuce. Drizzle some homemade honey vinaigrette on top and you will find yourself in salad heaven!

You can use fresh almonds or caramelize them in sugar. Caramelizing gives them a sweet, crunchy coating that pairs perfectly in this Summer Peach Fresh Mozzarella Salad.  There are many green options – you can use a spring mix, peppery arugula, or finely chopped romaine.  Romaine has the mildest flavor of all of them so it is the most kid-friendly but if you are looking for a grown-up salad, go with spring mix or arugula. I tested it on my guinea pigs (my four kiddos) and they devoured it….even using the spring mix!

Use any type of fresh mozzarella from pearls to balls to logs. Costco sells a 2 pack of BelGioioso which is a complete steal. It’s already sliced for you so don’t have to do any work so this salad just got easier!

    Made this when we had company for dinner. So delicious! I made the base of the salad as written, but added in craisins, bacon, and drizzled on a few drops of Trader Joe’s balsamic glaze (which I could drink straight!) to the mozzarella before adding the dressing. It was crazy-good, and beautiful to boot. Even my young nephew and niece liked it. This one’s a keeper!

      You always have the best ideas, Alicia! Thank you for sharing! I have that Trader Joe’s balsamic glaze as well (and am in love with it too) so I am going to try it next time. I LOVE that idea! Oh and everything is better with bacon, right? 🙂

    Hi Cheri! That sounds heavenly to go back and forth between Arizona and Oregon. We love Schnepf Farms as well and there’s nothing like picking peaches straight from the tree. Thank you so much for your kind comments. 🙂

    We spend half our time in Phoenix Az and in Yachats Oregon. If we are home during the season we go to the Schnepf farm. Beautiful salad.
