You may not need a recipe for this, but I’m seriously obsessed with this combo this summer and had to share the idea in case you haven’t experienced the summer goodness that is nectarine caprese. I snuck it into my blog lineup early because summer is coming to a close way too fast and you need to try this! It is creamy and acidic and bright and I can’t get enough of it. Peaches are good too, but I find that nectarines have a bolder flavor that just sets it off so nicely against the creaminess of the mozzarella. Yes, you can drizzle it with balsamic, but I find that it is absolutely perfect on its own. For an extra “wow” factor, use buratta in place of the mozzarella. Oh my. I can’t even begin to describe that kind of perfection. This has been my lunch for the past few weeks whenever I can get my hands on some perfectly ripe nectarines. It’s healthy, it’s light, and it feels so luxurious!
Time to Make It: <5 minutes
Yield: Serves a greedy 1 (like me)
1 nectarine, pitted and sliced
1 fresh mozzarella ball, sliced
1. Just eat them together. You can be fancy and layer them. This is as uncomplicated of a recipe as it gets!
