peach and heirloom tomato salad with creamy avocado dressing on a white tablecloth

As the summer turns into fall here in Manhattan, I couldn’t help but want to walk to my farmers market and find a few heirloom tomatoes that were bursting with flavor. Alongside of them were the most beautiful peaches so I thought I’d toss them together for an end-of-summer salad with a creamy avocado dressing that adds a savory touch to the sweet peaches and tomatoes.

I’ve topped this salad off with a sprinkling of fresh chives and a few fresh basil leaves but feel free to use whichever fresh herbs intuitively feel best to you. This salad is sure to become a staple when you’re in a pinch for a quick meal or when you’re entertaining. 

You can add any protein you desire such as organic chicken, grass fed beef, organic eggs, a drizzle of tahini or any nuts and seeds of choice.
