Peach Caprese Salad with Toasted Garlic Naan…and a spicy, sweet champagne vinaigrette. This bright, colorful, and fresh summer salad, is full of grilled peaches, tomatoes, basil, and creamy burrata cheese. It’s that easy summer salad that everyone craves all winter long. Just as perfect as a side to simple alfresco dinner as it is for a summer dinner party.

Writing this post from Costa Rica, but by the time it’s live I’ll be back home and back at it. I’m bummed to be saying goodbye to my family after an amazing few days. It was nice sitting on the beach, spending time with my family, and making so many memories along the way.

I can’t really say I feel super relaxed, as Gerard family vacations aren’t usually of the relaxing kind. But they’re full of more adventures than you can imagine. That’s just us, we are a very adventurous crew. I’m pretty much nothing like the rest of them, but I sure love them all.

And with all that said, I’m sure I’ll be happy to be back at work today. Though I’m also sure I’ll be playing a mad round of email catch up. Maybe I’ll procrastinate the emails for a day and cook instead. I miss my kitchen and I miss photographing it for you all!

Until I have some new recipes to share, let me tell you all about this extra summery salad.

I’ve been holding onto this salad for way too long. Me being me, I wanted to hold off until just the right time. I wanted the peaches to be perfectly ripe, the tomatoes juicy and sweet, and summer to be in full swing.

It’s one of my favorite summer salads that I’ve made because it’s full of summer fruit, tomatoes, and herbs.

Here are the details.

It’s pretty simple…ish, but probably more complicated than a peach and tomato salad needs to be. I know, that’s annoying, but I promise this salad is worth every last step. There are a lot of peach and tomato salads out there, so I hesitated to even share a new one. I knew if I was going to share a salad like this that it had to be a little different from the rest.

It all starts with the produce. Make sure you find the best peaches and tomatoes you can get your hands on. They are the heart of the salad and where all the flavor comes from.

The next step is to toast the torn naan along with a little butter, olive oil, garlic, and sesame seeds. I know this step is kind of a pain, but toasting the naan is worth it. It soaks up the vinaigrette and clings to the burrata. So delish, and adds a hearty crunch to the salad.

Now on to the peaches. Instead of leaving the peaches raw, I like to grill half of them. I love the way grilled peaches turn sweet and soft, while the fresh peaches stay a little crisp and have some bite to them.

Once the naan is toasted, and the peaches are grilled, toss them in with the tomatoes, basil, prosciutto, and burrata.

Now on to the vinaigrette. The vinaigrette is tangy, sweet, and a touch spicy. I like to pack it full of basil and use champagne vinegar to switch it up from the usual balsamic. If you’re new to champagne vinegar, it can be found at most grocery stores. I simply order mine on Amazon or Thrive Market for convenience since I’ve been using so much of it. If you don’t have any champagne vinegar, feel free to swap-in your favorite, or use what you have on hand.

The beauty of this salad is that the longer the peaches and tomatoes sit and marinate in the vinaigrette, the better the flavor. Well, don’t let the salad sit for days…but 6-12 hours in the fridge is no problem.

This is a great salad for summer parties. But it’s also equally great to pack for lunch since you can make it a bit of head of time. It’s also so pretty!

If I was serving this for a summer dinner party, I’d add this grilled salmon or chicken, definitely these potatoes, then my favorite berry filled fruit crisp. So almost all of this week’s recipes. I didn’t create a summer dinner party menu on purpose, but hey it certainly works, and it’s all delicious!

And yes, this is one of those show-stopping salads that people will be talking about all summer long. It’s that good!

Ingredients

Toasted Garlic Naan

Salad

Champagne Vinaigrette

Instructions

  • 1. To make the toasted naan. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. On a large baking sheet toss together the torn pieces of naan, butter, olive oil, garlic, sesame seeds, and a pinch of salt. Spread out in an even layer on the baking sheet. Transfer to the oven and bake for 12-15 minutes, until fragrant and toasted.
    2. To make the salad. Preheat your grill, grill pan or cast iron skillet to medium high and brush the grates with oil. Grill the half of peaches for 2-3 minutes or until light char marks appear, flip and grill another 2-3 minutes. On a large platter, arrange the grilled peaches, remaining raw peaches, tomatoes, basil, and prosciutto.
    3. To make the vinaigrette. Combine all ingredients in a glass jar and shake to combine. Pour the vinaigrette over the salad, gently tossing to coat.
    4. To serve, add the toasted naan and gently toss. Break the burrata over the salad and drizzle with additional vinaigrette, salt, and pepper.

    I made this for a family gathering over the weekend. There was not one bite left. I substituted fresh mozz for the burratta — my store didn’t have any — but it was still so good. The grilled peaches and vinegarette took this from being a simple “caprese” to a surprising showstopper salad.

  2. Made this with store bought naan, but followed the rest of the recipe exactly. Soo delicious. My entire family thought it was the best part of our meal. Thanks for all of your beautiful fresh recipes. Love your blog.

  3. Sounds good but the recipe itself seems incomplete: it says “sliced peaches.” Not grilled peaches and no grilling instructions. Do you oil and salt them before grilling? Do you grill wedges? Sliced? For how long?

    1. Hi there! I am very sorry, I did leave the grilling step out of the recipe by mistake. I have now fixed the recipe and it reads correctly. I am so sorry for any confusion! Please let me know if you have any other questions. I hope you love this recipe! Thank you! xTieghan

  4. I’m a little confused. Do you marinate the grilled and fresh peaches, and the tomatoes in the vinaigrette before assembling the Salad?

    1. Hey Lani! No need to marinate the peaches or tomatoes. You can just toss everything and serve. So sorry if this was confusing. Please let me know if you have any other questions. I hope you love this recipe! Thank you! xTieghan

    I made this for my family and it was a huge a hit! The flavors, the colors, the sweet paired with salty flavors, such creativity Tieghan! We agreed that it’s much more that salad – so unique – a rustic, deconstructed flatbread. I realized later that the title says GRILLED peaches and it slipped my mind so I used fresh but no one noticed 😉

  6. I didn’t have any ripe peaches at home, but I had a ripe cantaloupe. I switched out 3 peaches for 1 cantaloupe, and it was delicious! I love prosciutto and cantaloupe and the other flavors went nicely with it as well. Will definitely be making again!

  7. Hi Tieghan, Thanks so much for the great ideas!
    I want to try this salad with the naan – but how long in advance can you make the PLAIN naan? Does it get dry fast? And how about the toasted naan? Or how can I store it?

    We will have guests on the weekend and I was hoping to prepare most of the things earlier…

    thank you so much and all the best from Germany, Pia

    This was such a delicious summer meal!! Light yet satisfying. Will be making this many times over before the summer is done. Thank you!

  9. Made this tonight with the smashed salt and vinegar potatoes and they were both fantastic! Thank you for continuing to provide us with beautiful, creative and delicious recipes!

    I am disappointed with how this turned out. Made it last night when I was craving something sweet. It was easy enough to make with only 4 ingredients, but mine never crisped up like it says it will. Even today it still seems rather pasty. ?

    1. Hey Amelia, are you referring to this peach caprese salad? I’m not sure what could be pasty about this recipe? Sorry just a little confused as to what went wrong?

  11. Here I was considering a peach salad for lunch and come across this,how about perfect timing, huh!!! Lunch settled!

    Tieghan…we just finished “devouring” this salad and OMG,! It was delicious! That naan bread was to die for! This was certainly company worthy and I think as seasons change, one could use different fruits. Thanks so much..it sure was a 5 star meal!

  13. Well Tieghan..you have made my mind up on what to have for supper tonight! This looks delish! Perfect summer fare! I just bought peaches and tomatoes and have a pot of basil sitting outside wanting to be used for something! And..I actually have prosciutto and some naan in the fridge too! So, I am good to go! I shall let you know how it turns out! Thankyou and safe travels! ? ✈️

    1. That is so perfect!! So glad you like this and I hope it turns out amazing for you, Colleen! Thank you! xTieghan
