Peach, Mozzarella, and Basil salad

This is real simple yet flavorful salad for summers. And it's a no fuss recipe with unique flavor.

I got the inspiration from here.

I did not use Fresh Mozzarella, I used the regular Mozzarella cheese and instead of cutting peach into wedges, I just diced them. Watch the salt you put in the salad as the store bought Mozzarella is already salted.

3 ripe peaches (peeled, if desired)
1 cup fresh basil leaves, torn
8 ounces fresh mozzarella, cut into 1-inch chunks
2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper

Cut each peach into 6 to 8 wedges, then cut each wedge in half crosswise. In a large bowl, combine the peaches, basil, and mozzarella. Drizzle with the oil, sprinkle with the salt and pepper, and toss. (You can cover and refrigerate the salad for up to several hours.) Serve cold or at room temperature.
