Peach Tomato Caprese Salad

Italian Christmas Food Recipes

One of the must haves at a Christmas in the Southern Hemisphere is salad. It's the height of summer and salad just suits our climate perfectly. This Peach Tomato Caprese Salad also answers a couple of other themes. It looks like the Italian flag while also echoing Christmas colours. It also makes use of delicious peaches and stone fruit we have during this season! You could also serve this in the shape of a wreath or a candy cane!
