Peach Caprese Salad

I am working from home today so I decided to make myself something interesting for lunch. Based on the success of yesterday's lunch, I wanted to make a more classic caprese salad. But I also wanted to put a twist on it. I decided to add peaches so I could get that different kind of fruit taste that I liked so much yesterday.

Here is my "recipe":
1 1/2 tomatoes, sliced
a few rings of red onion
6-8 basil leaves
a few slices of fresh mozzarella
1 peach, sliced

Directions: Layer on a plate in order of ingredients. Top with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.

This salad was pretty delicious. The peach was a nice touch. I would recommend saving the peach for absolute last - drizzle the olive oil and season with salt and pepper, THEN add the peaches on top. It is just a little weird to have your peaches covered with oil and salt and pepper. I will probably be having this again this week if my basil will survive long enough!
