It’s stone fruit season and I could not be more excited! Bring on all the wonderful, juicy fruits!
Starting with this summer stone fruit caprese salad. It’s such a fun twist on classic caprese and will be your new favorite dish for summer entertaining. Plus, it’s a recipe that doesn’t require turning on your oven in the summer heat. And it will come together in minutes.
Cue all the exclamation points! That’s a win for everyone.
Today I’m partnering with ALDI again to bring you this delicious stone fruit caprese salad! When I say that ALDI has an incredible, affordable selection of super high-quality summer produce… I’m not kidding. Look at these beauties!
The cherries are absolutely fabulous, we have been going through them like crazy. The peaches and nectarines are a dream too!
Just walking through ALDI inspired me to make this stone fruit caprese because the produce was fantastic. They are my go-to store for stunning seasonal eats.
We are such seasonal eaters and I love having a unique recipe on hand that on takes a few minutes. Classic caprese – tomatoes, mozzarella and basil – is obviously a staple in the summer for us. But this stone fruit version is such a fun twist on the salad and something you can throw together in no time at all!
For the base of this caprese, I started with the Emporium Selection Fresh Mozzarella Balls. ALDI also has these in a pre-sliced version, as well as marinated mini mozzarella balls for ease! This is one of those recipes where you can make it your own and use whatever variety of fresh mozzarella you love.
Then, on to our stone fruit. I went with fresh peaches, nectarines and cherries. As we dive later into summer, you can add on delicious fruits like plums too! The stone fruit is juicy and flavorful and the perfect complement to the soft fresh mozzarella.
My favorite part? I used the Specially Selected Extra Virgin Olive Oil and lots of fresh basil to make my basil vinaigrette. I could drink this vinaigrette – it is a DREAM! Not only is it vibrant and gorgeous in color, it tastes wonderful. You won’t be able to get enough. It’s great on this stone fruit caprese, but also will become a summer staple for you. Use it on traditional caprese salads, on salads at dinner, for bread-dipping, for drizzling on roasted vegetables – the options are endless. (more…)
