Directions

Directions

  1. To a large bowl, add peaches, vanilla, nutmeg, cinnamon, and 1 teaspoon avocado oil, and toss gently.

  2. Preheat a medium nonstick pan over medium heat. Add peaches to the pan and lightly brown them on both sides. Transfer to a small baking sheet and place in the refrigerator.

  3. Place corn in a pot of cold water and bring to a boil until corn is cooked through, about 10–15 minutes. Remove from water and cut in half.

  4. Preheat a medium nonstick pan over medium heat and add 1 teaspoon avocado oil. Wait 10 seconds and then add corn. Lightly brown all sides of the corn. Transfer corn to a small baking sheet and place in the refrigerator.

  5. Once peaches and corn are cool, remove from the refrigerator. Cut the corn kernels off the ear; add to a bowl along with the peaches and add onions.

  6. To a separate bowl, add all dressing ingredients. Whisk together until it reaches a smooth consistency. Add dressing to corn, peaches, onions, and toss gently. Serve.
