Definitely make the dressing ahead to develop flavors....I added crushed dried mint to the curry powder in the bowl, plus 1/2 teaspoon celery salt, then mixed the vinaigrette. Didn't have Champagne vinegar, so used white balsamic and it was great. Salad combo is different and refreshing...good with nectarines also.
My husband and I both enjoyed this recipe. I used nectarines instead of peaches and the buffalo mozzarella really makes it! I diced up some romaine to use as a base and skipped the mint and basil (actually, I forgot to add them). The curry vinagrette is very mild tasting but good. I think I will try to thicken it a bit next time. I enjoyed the suptle flavors of the curry, nectarine and mozarella.... maybe because the mint and basil flavors did not predominate. Will make again and try on company.
First of all, unlike what the other reviewer stated, Madras curry powder does exist. Second of all this was fantastic as a light lunch. Used regular mozzarella and also added a few strawberries.
I am giving this one because there are no decimals, in which case I would give it 0.1. The vinaigrette was completely over powered by a nutty olive oil taste and looks/tastes like diarrhea. The peach and mozzarella looked/tasted okay, but was ruined by the disgusting "vinaigrette". Also, the advertised curry flavor does not exist. A complete waste of good cheese. And peaches. What a disappointment. I would rather eat diarrhea, which I happened to have the night I made this. NOTE: I followed this recipe to a tee.
