6-8 basil leaves, thinly sliced

In a bowl, whisk together the lime juice and zest, vinegar, honey, water, salt, and pepper. Slowly whisk in the olive oil, and set aside.
On a platter, arrange the mozzarella and peaches, and drizzle with the vinaigrette.
Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Toss on the basil, and serve

To slice the basil leaves, stack them and roll them like a sleeping bag. Then, thinly slice them.
Instead of a composed (or arranged) salad, you can also serve this as a mixed, combined salad. Just toss the cheese and peaches together, and drizzle on the vinaigrette. Then add the salt, pepper, and basil.
