Creamy avocados and juicy peaches get a kick of spice thanks to Fresno chiles.

Ingredients
3 tbsp. fresh lemon juice
3 tbsp. olive oil
2 tsp. pure honey
1 shallot, finely chopped
1 Fresno chile, thinly sliced
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
3 ripe but firm peaches, cut into wedges
2 avocados, pitted and cut into wedges
1/2 c. fresh mint, torn if large, plus more for garnish
1/4 c. roasted pistachios, chopped

Method
  1. Whisk together lemon juice, oil, honey, shallot, and chile in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Add peaches and toss to coat. Let sit at least 15 minutes and up to 1 hour.
  2. Just before serving, add avocado and mint and toss to combine. Season with salt and pepper. Top with pistachios and garnish with mint.

Mt. Townsend Creamery aims to bring new life to dairy by creating wonderful cheese. From the beginning, we have prioritized using high-quality milk. Today Mt. Townsend’s cheeses are handcrafted from the milk of a single herd of 250 cows that live and graze on a family-owned farm, in Sequim, whose owners have been raising dairy cows for generations. https://mttownsendcreamery.com
