“the mee mee” salad aka summer peach salad

Peach_Salad_001

Awe…Summer… warm days, sundress, sandy toes (which I actually dont care for) and peaches… the best! “The mee mee” salad is named after my dearest friend, Meehan. She is quintessential “summer”… she comes alive in the sun, she is happiest on the sand and most at peace when things are simple. Meem’s is “California” thru and thru. She is elegant. One of those gals who can be at the beach all day and then throw on a long dress and look knock out gorgeous for dinner. Effortless beauty, this one. I should add that I tried to learn how to tan from her… big mistake…I must have had a moment of forgetfulness on that day, when I chose not to acknowledge that my red headed genes and milky white skin don’t exactly bronze like her olive goddess bod does… hours later, she looked more like a model (if at all possible) and I needed an aloe bath… for about three days. In any case…Time spent with her is like a dream… you just don’t want it to end.

After a lovely Saturday morning, Rob and I picked all the finest summer goods from local farmers at our market and came up with this delightful salad. Summer in a bowl really. It is so satisfying and very very delicious. I hope you make this salad and share it with someone as lovely as my dear mee mee.

Ingredients

arugula
1 white peach, thinly sliced
sliced red onion (1/8 thinly sliced… super important otherwise it dominates in flavor)
toasted almond slivers (about 1/3 cup) (I take raw almond slivers and toast them in a pan on the stove top, works great and faster than the oven!)
1 whole avocado, sliced
avocado oil (about 1/3 cup)
white balsamic vinegar (about 1 tablespoon)
1 tablespoon of honey (or less if that is too sweet for you)
dash of salt

Instructions

Mix all the ingredients together and toss with dressing. ENJOY ENJOY ENJOY
