Peach Caprese Stacks with Honey Bourbon Balsamic Reduction

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 15 minutes

Ingredients

  • 2 peaches pitted and sliced (I sliced into tomato like slices, but any style will work:)
  • 6 slices whole milk mozzarella
  • 6 large leaves fresh basil
  • 1 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 cup bourbon or honey bourbon such as Wild Turkey American Honey
  • 2 tablespoons honey if not using the honey bourbon
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

Instructions

  1. In a small sauce pan, bring the balsamic, sugar, and bourbon to a boil (plus honey if not using the honey bourbon). Reduce to a simmer and allow to simmer until reduced by half. It will become a syrupy consistency. Simmer for at least 15 minutes.
  2. While balsamic is reducing, heat olive oil in a large skillet. Add peaches and cook on each side until extra tender and juicy; about 5 minutes. Set aside.
  3. To assemble your stacks, start with a peach slice, then mozzarella, the basil. Repeat three times.
  4. Top with the Honey Bourbon Balsamic Reduction.
  5. Enjoy!

Yay for Kansas City!!! Does this mean you are coming to Chopped??? If so, I will be there and can't wait to meet you in person!!! These caprese stacks make me happy, because they don't include pumpkin and scream summer -- something I'm not quite ready to let go of..
Zainab
These are just gorgeous and I am eating peaches still. So no worries here. Have fun on the road. I'm glad I met you in NYC!
    Becky Hardin
    SO glad I met you too Zainab! I was just telling my mom about you and Allie. Such a pleasure...I'm going to try to make BHF work in Chicago!!
Cristina @ I Say Nomato
Um, so I need to make this yesterday! I'm always looking for tomato-less alternatives to caprese salad (because balsamic vinegar and mozzarella are the best!), so I'll have to try this one! Looks so delicious!
Malinda @ Countryside Cravings
These are so pretty and what a clever spin on a classic! It looks like you are having a wonderful time on your travels! Those calves were so cute!
Kacey @ The Cookie Writer
Becky, you live the life! I love coming here and reading all your posts (but I will admit, I am seriously hungry and kind of upset I do not have this dish in front of me...) Haha!
Katerina @ Diethood
Well, if there was a way to keep my sanity, this salad would honestly be IT! LOVING the gif!!! Can't wait to see you on a couple of those trips! :-D ♥

Seriously, rock that summer. So sad it's actually coming to an end but I'll still pretend as I eat my peaches and pumpkin at the same time haha
Nutmeg Nanny
Seeing this post makes me wish I had some more peaches on hand. It looks so freaking tasty!
