Living in California, we can buy essentially any produce year round. We are fortunate to have a mild climate to grow all types of produce and not be limited, but I believe in buying produce when it is at the peak of its growing season.
The fruit I am obsessed with this summer is the peach. You can not beat the sweet, juicy first bite of a perfectly ripe peach. My favorite summertime salad is peach, prosciutto, and burrata on top of a bed of arugula with a drizzle of balsamic glaze and freshly cracked pepper. It is a crowd pleaser at a dinner party or perfect for an al fresco lunch. Peaches can be grilled to bring out more sweetness when paired with vanilla ice cream or made into peach cobbler to end a summer BBQ. Peaches are versatile in summer and in my opinion, need to be seen more on menus!
