peach and cherry tomato caprese

This has been the summer of good peaches and great tomatoes here in Durham. Thanks to

some fresh mozzarella, a little basil, and some balsamic glaze, I came up with this version of the classic salad.
2 peaches, cored and then sliced
slices of fresh mozzarella about the same size as the peaches
cherry tomatoes, cut in half, longways
fresh basil, cut in chiffonade
olive oil
balsamic vinegar(I actually used a balsamic reduction I found at Trader Joe's.)
Lay the slice of peach on the plate. Stack the mozzarella on top and then cover cheese with a handful of tomatoes. Sprinkle the basil across the top and then drizzle with olive oil and balsamic vinegar.
