Peach and Avocado Summer Salad

It has been a bumper year for Passionfruit in Northland and this Avocado and Peach salad drizzled with passionfruit dressing is to die for. The creaminess of the avocado & sweetness of the peach work together perfectly with the tart passionfruit. These ugly beautiful fruits are tart but sweet & a wonderful tropical flavour to add to smoothies, ice cream, yoghurt & passionfruit curd. This simple salad lets the dressing shine through

as it is the star of the dish. Get in those last tastes of summer kiwis,

as autumn is knocking on the door.
