Nectarine Avocado Salad
What tastes better than peaches and cream? Nectarines and avocado! Okay, so it’s probably not as traditional as peaches and cream and not as sweet but as a salad it’s a fabulous combination.
And just to go with the peaches theme, you could use peaches instead of nectarines. The mix of capers in this salad gives it a salty flavour to counterbalance all that sweetness.
There are some varieties of nectarines that you can slice in half and twist and the flesh comes away from the stone easily, but if you don’t have that variety then slice the nectarines in half from top to bottom. Leave the halves on the stone and slice again around from top to bottom so the cuts are in quarters. Slice again if need be and pry the flesh off the stone. Once you’ve got one section off the stone, cut around the stone to make even slices.Print
