Peach, Tomato and Mozzarella Salad

When summer produce is at its peak this simple salad is summer on a plate! I just got a box of 12 peaches at Costco and they are so good, firm but ripe, juicy and so sweet.  Perfect for this salad as each ingredient needs to be at it's best.  I also got some wonderful heirloom tomatoes at the farmers market that taste like a tomato should taste.  I will be making this again real soon as the peaches are ripe and ready.  
1 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil *
1/2 tablespoon balsamic vinegar *
1/4 -1/2 teaspoon flaked sea salt, divided
1 heirloom or vine ripe tomatoes, sliced
1 ripe peaches - halved, pitted, and sliced
4 leaves fresh basil, torn
4oz fresh mozzarella, thinly sliced and quartered *

1.  Whisk olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and 1 pinch flaked salt together in a bowl until dressing is smooth.
2.  Alternate tomato slices, peach slices and mozzarella slices in layers on a platter.  Sprinkle salt and basil on top. Drizzle dressing over salad and serve.

Serves 2-4

*Instead of the oil and balsamic vineagar dressing, you can use a balsamic glaze.
*You can use burrata instead of fresh mozzarella
