Corn, Peach and Avocado Salad

It was such a beautiful weekend in New York it was hard to not indulge and sip cocktails and celebrate birthdays with friends. While I did kick off the weekend with an epic #PrideRide at Cyc Fitness (everyone got Amazeballs after class) I also did indulge in beers, whisky and an old favorite... shrimp fried rice! 

Needless to say today I had to kick it into high gear (hence the late post) I decided to do a double workout today after double cooking duty, but better late then never is what I say!

Ok, let's get to it. This salad and #MeatlessMonday recipe will take you 20 minutes to make and you will be thankful for that because you will likely eat this all summer. Eat it alone, top it with a piece of fish or chicken, this is sure to be a new favorite!!!
