Avocado Peach Salad

With February behind us, it’s time to start thinking spring—finally! It’s almost kismet that at The Olive Press, we’ve just released a line of new balsamics; they complement spring flavors just perfectly. For newcomers to our balsamics, we highly recommend you try our Peach Balsamic Vinegar; it’s so good that when our kitchen testers first tried it, they wanted to drink it like juice. Really!

To bring out the best of our Peach Balsamic Vinegar, we’ve crafted a salad that’s going to keep your taste buds in peachy heaven from now through summer: an avocado peach salad with fresh berries served on a bed of butter lettuce. Here, buttery flavors of the lettuce, ripe avocado, and our Mission Olive Oil come together with crisp, refreshing flavors of peach and berry. The contrast is to die for. You may want to double this recipe if you have avocado or peach lovers in the family.

  • 1 head butter lettuce, torn
  • 1 avocado, pitted, halved, sliced
