Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 medium zucchini
  • 1 ear fresh corn
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes
  • 1 medium ripe peach
  • 2 oz fresh whole milk mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil leaves
  • 1 1/2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tbsp white balsamic vinegar (or regular balsamic)
  • Salt
  • Pepper

Instructions

  1. Spiralize zucchini into noodles. (I use this spiralizer and love it.)
  2. Cut kernels from corn cob, half the cherry tomatoes, and dice the peach. Cut mozzarella into 1/2 inch pieces and thinly slice basil into ribbons.
  3. Place everything in a large bowl. Drizzle with oil and balsamic vinegar. Sprinkle with coarse salt and freshly cracked pepper. Gently toss to combine.
  4. Serve immediately, or place in the refrigerator, covered, until ready to serve.

Notes

  • You can make zucchini noodles without a spiralizer by using a vegetable peeler or mandoline to slice zucchini into ribbons. From there you can cut the zucchini into thinner 'noodles', or leave them in thicker ribbons.
  • The great thing about this everything summer zucchini noodle caprese salad is that the ingredients are so flexible! Throw in whatever summer produce you have, like strawberries or avocado. If you're out of basil, try mint. Anything goes!
  • To make this salad dairy-free and vegan, simply leave out the mozzarella or use a vegan substitute.
  • Leftovers will store well in the fridge for a day or two.
