Peach, Mozzarella, And Basil Salad

Like Missy mentioned in her comment, I'm pretty boring with salads. Anyone who knows me, knows salad = a variation of spinach, pears, walnuts and blue cheese. Sometimes when I'm feeling really crazy, I mix it up with a kale salad. Needless to say, Curtis was pretty happy last night when "salad" meant something new: peaches, mozzarella and basil. It was super quick, easy and summery! And really delicious.
