My cooking club theme this month was “Farmer’s Market” and I have certainly been practicing over the last few weeks, enjoying new types of produce like garlic scapes and tat soi, and old favorites like carrots and zucchini. The first dish I made for the dinner was this Peach, Mozzarella, and Basil Salad from Real Simple, which I served over a bed of Romaine lettuce, so that it could be tossed like a more traditional salad.
The mozzarella was made by Fiore Di Nonno in Somerville, which is sold at the Copley Square Farmer’s Market. I snuck a piece while preparing the salad, and there is nothing like the taste of fresh mozzarella. Peaches, basil, and lettuce are all readily available at markets right now, and this salad comes together very quickly. It looks fancier than it is, but it tastes just like summer. Perfect!
