Peaches are also plentiful in the Garden State (that would be NJ) right now, and are delicious.
There's nothing better than a ripe peach or nectarine.
I liked this version of a Caprese stack even better than the traditional tomato/basil/mozz combo.
and if 40 is the new 20, then mint is the new basil.
Figure about 1 whole peach per person and 2 slices of cheese per stack.
I sliced the peaches into rounds and layered them with fresh mozzarella slices (the kind packed in water).
Place a few fresh mint leaves in between the slices and drizzle w/ balsamic syrup (the thick stuff in the squeeze bottle).
Can be made 30 minutes before serving, but garnish w/ the syrup right before.
The kid next door said they looked like "fruit burgers".
He has a point there.
