I needed mushrooms for my supper last night, so I went out for a quick in & out at the grocery store and I picked up a few things my stomach was ordering me to get, such as mini bocconcini.

Once I got home, I put together a small salad with what was left in my fruit basket (avocados, peaches & limes) and honestly, this is going to be my summer favourite. While my pregnancy hormones might make me a biased cook, (because everything seems to be either delicious or disgusting) I’m positive you’ll also love this recipe, let me know!! 

I wanted a creamy dressing for this salad, which is my usual preference, but I also try not to add mayonnaise to everything, so I crushed a half a peach for the dressing, and it worked so well!

Voilà!
