Peach, Avocado, and Pistachio Salad

I could eat this one weekly. This salad has all the things: Nutty cracked wheat! Creamy avocado! Juicy peach! Peppery arugula! Crunchy pistachio! Do you know Simply Savory by Kate? You should! She made these curried pistachio and added them to a salad with peaches and avocado. Yum! I took a variation on it.

I tossed mine all together with a touch of honey mustard dressing and grilled sausages on top. LOVED it. This would be a really great use of a leftover grain. It would pack well if the nuts and peach were separate until serving.

Peach, Avocado, and Pistachio Salad (for 2-3)

Ingredients:

1 cup cracked wheat (or lentils/farro/brown rice/Israeli couscous/quinoa/etc)

1 peach
1 avocado
2 cups arugula
2 tablespoons honey mustard dressing
1/3 cup pistachios

Directions:

Cook the cracked wheat (or other grain) with the water or broth. (I cooked the cracked wheat that morning and refrigerated for the day.)
Grill the sausages.
Chop the peach, avocado, and arugula and mix together with the cracked wheat and dressing. Then top with the pistachios.

This has everything. The grain makes it a filling dinner. I liked the stronger flavor of the greens since the peach is sweet and the arugula was creamy.
