Grilled Peach Caprese Salad

Salads might not be the first thing you think of in terms of camping food, but this Grilled Peach Caprese Salad by contributor Emily Hlavac Green has got us craving a big bowl of greens.

There’s little more beautiful, simple or tasty than a classic Caprese Salad, IMO. Perhaps because I’m a huge meat and cheese fan, or it’s down to my love of all things balsamic.

On our latest adventure upstate, we picked up some of the late summers produce – huge juicy peaches and deep red heirloom tomatoes to add to our camp meal toolbox. This recipe has a twist on the traditional Caprese, switching out basil for mint.

The grilled peaches have a little chared smokiness to them and warrant lighting a campfire. If you have it, watermelon also works really well in here.

  • 8 oz ball of fresh mozzarella, torn into 1/2 inch sized pieces
  • 6-8 slices of prosciutto, cut into thin strips

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons balsamic reduction, (recipe follows)
  • salt & pepper to taste

  • Arrange arugula, tomato slices, mozzarella, prosciutto and mint between two plates. Top with sliced roasted peaches and drizzle with olive oil and balsamic reduction. Season with salt & pepper. 


  • To make a balsamic reduction, bring 1/3 cup balsamic vinegar to a boil in a small saucepot. Reduce the heat and simmer until the vinegar has thickened to the consistency of syrup, about 10 minutes. This can be prepared ahead of time and transported to camp in a small, sealable container.
