  • 2 medium peaches
  • 4 oz fresh mozzarella
  • 10-12 fresh basil leaves
  • balsamic reduction
  • olive oil
  • coarse sea salt


  1. Preheat grill or grill pan to medium heat.
  2. Wash and slice peaches about 1/2 inch thick. Slice mozzarella 1/4 inch thick and cut each piece in half to make half moon shapes.
  3. Brush or spray peach slices with olive oil. Place peaches on the grill and cook undisturbed until grill lines appear, about 2-4 minutes. Flip peaches and continue cooking until grill lines appear on the other side. Remove from the grill.
  4. Arrange the salad on a plate by alternating slices of peaches, mozzarella, and basil leaves. Drizzle with balsamic reduction and sprinkle with sea salt.


  • Once you place the peaches on the grill, don't move them until you're ready to flip them. This will help them develop a crust so that they release form the grill easily.
  • If you'd like to make the balsamic reduction yourself, add about 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar to a small saucepan and bring to a gentle boil. Simmer until reduced by half, about 15-20 minutes.
