At the height of summer it’s hard to turn down a sweet juicy peach, but how about adding it to everyone’s favourite Italian salad? The fruit amplifies the saltiness of the cheese and the sweetness of the tomatoes, with avocado adding creamy colour. It makes a gorgeous healthy meal in itself, or serve alongside roast chicken and crusty bread when entertaining.
