Peaches and Granola

Cara-35 No produce completes a meal more perfectly than late summer peaches. Extra juicy with a punch of tartness, these sweet discs of color are my go-to plated produce for breakfast, brunch, lunch, or dessert. For an added textural component, I sprinkle the fruit with sliced almonds and a mild, sweet granola. Admittedly I do not make my own (though I should), because I'm hooked on Whole Foods' honey vanilla granola in the bulk section.

Despite the low level of difficulty with this minimalistic side dish, your guests will feel like you accomplished a culinary, creative feat upon spooning the peaches on their plates!

2 peaches, pitted and sliced 1 inch thick 1 tablespoon sliced almonds 2 tablespoons granola 1 tablespoon créme fraiche, optional
