Peach & Fresh-Stretched Mozzarella Salad with Metropolitan Market

It wouldn't be summer without the arrival of Metropolitan Market's annual Peach-O-Rama event. This year is particularly sweet as the supermarket celebrates 20 years of bringing customers the juiciest and sweetest peaches from around the country. To help celebrate the event, we partnered with Metropolitan Market in Proctor, WA to create their Peach and Fresh-Stretched Mozzarella Salad! It's the perfect blend of savory and sweet, and is excellent alone or as a side to grilled halibut or chicken.
