The joy of seasonal ingredients

If you’ve never tried eating with the seasons I HIGHLY recommend it.

This Grilled Peach and Avocado Salad is a testament to that!

Each forkful invites a sensory journey – the sweetness of peaches, the creaminess of avocados, the crunch of corn, and the zing of tomatoes; it’s more than a salad – it’s a celebration of seasonal abundance.
