Consider this Avocado Peach Summer Salad the WGC house salad of summer. It’s my definition of perfection. Butter lettuce – perfect base. Fresh peaches and nectarines – mandatory in summer. Persian cucumbers – light and crunchy. Summer avocado – creamy and delish. Lemon Parm dressing – icing on the cake.

This goes with just about everything under the sun. Chicken, steak, fish, tofu, tempeh…. pasta, rice… you name it! It’s the salad of summer and if you start now, you’ve got plenty of time to soak it in for the next 2 months until peaches and nectarines are out of season. And here’s a link for the fall version once you run out of stone fruit! Ready, set, go!

And just a word to the wise – the dressing is top notch. So feel free to make a larger batch and store it in the fridge to use all week long! Just let it come to room temp before giving it a stir and using it throughout the week.

    This was the perfect summer salad filled with flavor and freshness. Part of my Summer rotation from now on.

  2. Peach season is weeks away here in the midwest; this recipe will be saved til then. I’m thinking it has promise to be delicious……thx.

    Easiest and most delicious summer salad! Pairs great with anything! We had it tonight with a lightly breaded/Parmesan crusted chicken breast but it would go great with steak, ribs and just about anything!

    Made tonight for a group and everyone loved it!! For some reason I always end up risking it making a new recipe for the first time for a group, but I was so pleased with how this turned out! Minimal ingredients and so easy to whip up. The dressing was phenomenal!

    I love your INSTA videos! You and Thomas and the darling Popster! When I watched you make this recipe, you used champagne vinegar. In this recipe, you call for red wine vinegar. Will that bolden the flavor?

    So good! If you love summer fruit you’ll love this salad. Its super simple and beautiful (your people will be impressed). I got the bag of TJ’s butter lettuce already cleaned and torn. Could it get any easier?
