Peach Mango Caprese Salad

Summer in the Midwest offers a bounty of fresh produce. I wanted to come up with something new from the harvest, and this bright, flavorful salad is the refreshing end result. —Richard A Robinson, Park Forest, Illinois

    Made this to go with a chicken and pasta dish and it was wonderful!! Will remake in the summer when peaches are really good but loved the meld of flavors!

    Great salad, the only change I would make is to use white balsamic vinegar! The dark changed the bright color of the salad!

    This is absolutely delicious!! I used cherry tomatoes from my garden as well. It's even great a few days later.

    Delicious summer recipe! I used only mango as I do not have ripe peaches yet; I'm looking forward to making it again when my peaches are ripe at the end of the summer. I couldn't find the mozzarella pearls, so I bought a fresh mozzarella ball and cut it into small pieces.

    Flavorful dressing and a great way to use up fresh summer fruit and herbs.

    Made a half a recipe and skipped the cilantro. Loved the sweetness of the fruit. The dressing is great...used less honey and a touch more black pepper. It's a great summer recipe.

    Wow...what an amazing salad! Rather than getting out my blender to mix up the dressing, I minced the basil and placed the remaining dressing ingredients in a small jar with a lid...shaking worked great. I will definitely be making this again!

    We loved this salad! I used fresh parsley in place of the cilantro, since that's what I had on hand. Nice fresh flavors and the mozzarella pearls added a delicious creamy and salty element. Great side for cookouts or a light lunch. Definitely will make again!

    Wonderful fresh flavors! The only change I made was to use fresh mint instead of the cilantro. I was very happy with the outcome!
