  • 1 ½ cups cubed heirloom tomatoes
  • 1 ½ cups cubed ripe nectarine
  • ½ jalapeño pepper seeds removed and flesh chopped very finely
  • tbsp Zest and juice of two limes about 2 juice
  • 1 tbsp fresh grated ginger
  • ½ tsp sesame oil
  • 1 ripe avocado cubed
  • 2 tsp black sesame seeds
  • 2 tbsp fresh mint leaves torn
  • Salt to taste I used himalayan pink salt


  • Toss tomatoes, nectarine, jalapeño and half of the lime zest together in a large bowl
  • For the dressing, whisk together the ginger, lime juice, sesame oil and a pinch of salt
  • Add the dressing to the tomato mixture. Add in the avocado, sesame seeds and half the mint
  • Gently toss to combine
  • To serve sprinkle with the rest of the mint and a little bit of lime zest


The nectarines can be swapped for ripe peaches instead. If you choose to do this, you may want to peel the peaches so you do not have the fuzzy skin in your salad.
Any leftovers should be stored in an airtight container in the fridge overnight. However, this salad is best eaten on the day it is made.
