Recipe of the week: Grilled Peach and Mozzarella Salad

Peaches, honey, cilantro, lime, cumin, chili, and tequila are among the ingredients that flavor this savory salad.

“The fragrance alone from a bowl of fresh peaches is worth the purchase price,” said Lisa Abraham in the Akron Beacon Journal. To give them a more savory touch, “try them out in this grilled salad.”
