Happy Meatless Monday guys! Today’s recipe is Raspberry & Peach Salad with Mozzarella cheese – basically a fruity Caprese style salad! 🙂
Where has August gone? Seriously, I can’t believe Summer is almost gone! Sad and happy at the same time as I know lots of new adventures are coming in the following months, plus Autumn is a great season, especially food-wise. 🙂 And Halloween (which all of our family gets really excited about 🙂 ) is fast approaching. So, even though we are saying goodbye to Summer, thing are looking pretty awesome this Autumn.
Right now, back to this pretty recipe now. This is all you may want from a Summer salad – fresh, fruity, light and healthy (or at least this is what I usually look for in a Summer salad 🙂 ). All you need is some ripe peaches, raspberries, mozzarella cheese and fresh basil (my favourite! ). It seem like I use this amazing herb with everything. I just can’t get enough of it. And to me, this is a herb that scream Summer. 🙂
The Raspberry & Peach Salad is healthy, delicious and takes a few minutes only so there’s no excuse not to try it out! 🙂
I made a fresh basil dressing as I didn’t want to make any pesto (I wanted to keep this salad as light and simple as possible). I used lots of extra virgin olive oil, lemon juice and some salt. Arrange the salad however you fancy and serve with the dressing on a side.
Here’s how to make this beautiful Summer Raspberry & Peach Salad
- 150g ripe raspberries
