Grilled Chicken with Peach, Avocado & Corn Salad

Have I mentioned lately that I have been in love with summer fruits and veggies, well I am! The peaches that we picked in the Hampton’s are long gone but we still got to enjoy a few local peaches with this salad. I have been freaking out about the fresh east coast corn as well. It is so sweet, crisp and fresh. (It also just makes the most perfect quick and deelish snack too! just shuck and eat!) And of course the addition of avocado in any dish is welcome in our house 🙂

The Grilled Chicken is a basic go-to quick cooking dish, but of course we still have to give it some flavor. Michael thought it paired nicely with the salad. As for me, I was beyond happy with a huge bowl of that yummy salad! mmmm
