White Peach, Tomato & Avocado Salad

DSC_0309

When summer is produce is at it’s peak, a salad pretty much makes itself. Add in some avocado and nothing else matters. As I mentioned in my previous salad post, any produce works, especially in season gems like tomato & white peaches.

While it looks simple, the flavor is anything but. Juicy tomatoes, sweet white peaches & buttery avocado meet spicy red onion and a bright lemon vinaigrette. Make 20 minutes or so ahead of time so the flavors have time to come together. While it’s delicious packed for lunch, I especially love it for a simple weeknight dinner. A crispy baguette, fresh boiled-corn, rose’… meet me on the porch.
