Peach, Pistachio and Avocado Salad

Three cheers for sundays. I feel so refreshed having had Sam home for a couple of days. We had a really nice sunday with a bike ride on my pretty new bike (her name is Pearl), a morning filled with the Gospel (I seriously cried just being in our church - it had been too long) and we got to see my mom and a sweet friend Maggie who came up to stay with the girls so we could have dinner over at our friends' lovely home (which is in walking distance -ee!). We were in charge of the salad and I really needed to use up some of our costco produce thus this pretty bowl was born. It's also an awesome way to use up those peaches that everyone is scooping up at the farmer's market.

Peach, Pistachio and Avocado Salad
serves 4

You will need:

- spinach or mixed greens
- 2 peaches
- 1 ripe avocado
- homemade dressing (my go-to, used recently in garden in a jar recipe)
- goat cheese
- good salt and pepper
- salted pistachios (get the kids to help you shell them)

I made the salad an hour before we got to our dinner party. Layer all toppings on top of the spinach and then drizzle with dressing. Finish with a sprinkle of ground pepper. Leave extra dressing for serving.


  1. yuuuum! as the taste-testers of this salad i feel the need to say it was delicious!!! :) thank you for sharing the recipe! :)

    1. still dreaming of the whole meal! so glad you liked it. :)

  2. Ohhhh my goodness!! As soon as I saw this recipe (last week), I knew it wouldn't be long before trying it out myself. As it happens, we had impromptu dinner guests last night and I knew it'd be the perfect side for our main dish. What a gorgeous and delicious salad!!! It was a hit and is a new favorite. I'll definitely be making this one on a pretty regular basis...and think it would pair so well with a (peach-balsamic marinated) grilled chicken breast! Thanks so much, Lesley, for sharing this one! YUM!

    1. this makes me SO happy!! so glad it was a hit. thanks for telling me susannah!

  3. Totally making this (though I'll sub feta or something for goat cheese cause I just don't love it). We have a peach tree in our backyard so now is the perfect time!!! Love you :)
