I love a good Caprese Salad in the summertime, it's just so refreshing and light in the hot summer months. And, anytime you mix heirloom tomatoes, basil, and cheese it's bound to be amazing! This salad is a twist on the traditional Caprese Salad, combining fresh peaches, tomatoes, and feta with a sweet honey vinaigrette. The best part - it's super simple!
