The peach, avocado, and blackberry salad guarantees your summer garnish set! Dressed with the most delicious honey and lime vinaigrette, and full of delicious textures and flavors. A perfect companion for anything off the grill, or just when you want something cooler for lunch or dinner.
SUMMER, SUMMER, SUMMMMMMMERRRRRR !!!! This beautiful salad just screams summer, and I'm totally happy about it. It contains all those things we yearn for in these hot months:
- Seasonal fresh fruit
- crispy vegetables
- deliciously fresh herbs
- Lime and honey vinaigrette? Now you know you need this for your summer rate.
Let's take another look at this bowl of vibrant goodness!
Eating this tasty salad made me realize that I overlooked the many uses of summer fruit. During the year, I am not a great fruit person and prefer to eat all vegetables. But when it's hot, the thought of filling my belly and mouth with refreshing fruit is all I can think of.
Combine some juicy peaches with avocado could be my new favorite. I added the slightly sour blackberry to give it a good balance, and was instantly hooked on this salad!
Some other fun elements of this vibrant salad: red chili flakes for a special touch, smooth slices of avocado that provide a smooth and delicious texture to fruit, pine nuts and fresh mint leaves. The lime and honey vinaigrette is prepared by mixing some simple ingredients. The lime gives the salad a delicious citrus kick, and the honey enhances all the fruit and avocado slices!

I've currently been enjoying this combo all week for lunch, but it also works perfectly in conjunction with a lean protein source like chicken or grilled salmon. Such an easy and light meal during the week!
