Summer is one of the most joyous times of the year outside of Christmas. Bright shining sun, warm fresh air and vibrant colors everywhere. Not to mention this means grilling season is back! However, if I am being honest, cold weather or not it’s always grilling season for me.
Another reason summer is one of the best times is because of the vacations! I recently went on a family trip to Door County, Wisconsin. Up there, they have a town called Fish Creek that is filled with tons of adorable shops. I stopped at one named: Fat Louie’s. They offer an abundance of olive oils, balsamic syrups, salsas, honey mustard, sauces, etc. I came across their cherry balsamic syrup and their lemon infused olive oil. The scent was unlike anything and I knew I had to have them both. So, if you didn’t already guess it, they were purchased and I came back home and found a great use for them in this recipe! Now, with that being said, you can say goodbye to boring traditional BBQ sauces because once you make this you will never go back!
Fresh simple summer ingredients get tossed together to make an unbelieve combination. I kid you not, when I say that this is hands down one of my favorite Pretty Plate dishes! I swear that every aspect from the chicken to the caprese salad to the cous cous all just flow so well. It’s light, filling and refreshing all at once. Plus it provided that extra punch of tangy sweet flavor and texture.
When it comes to that sweet cherry peach caprese salad, I could rave about this all day long. Wowza! It is so simple, satisfying and scrumptious with the combination of sweet cherries, juicy peaches, soft mozzarella pearls and herbed basil. It truly is a one of a kind summer salad.
Now, if you fear that summer is over or coming to an end, fear not…if you’re looking to stretch your summer season out for as long as possible, I gotchu. I’ve created this perfect summer dish to keep your summer going for as long as you want.
