Peach, Tomato, and Avocado Salad

Peach, Tomato, and Avocado Salad | ChopChop

Description

Come late summer, peaches and tomatoes are bursting from trees and vines. This surprising salad makes the most of their vibrant juiciness, and varies the texture and color with a little creamy green avocado. Serve it as a no-cook side dish—or swap it for salsa, and use it to top a quesadilla or scoop it up with whole-grain chips.
