1 lemon wedge
Vanilla ice cream (optional)

Directions
A quick and delicious summer dessert, fresh peaches pair well with the flavors of fresh basil and lavender. To make, cut up the peaches into 34 inch slices. Place into a bowl, toss with a tablespoon of chopped basil and a tablespoon of chopped lavender. Squeeze a wedge of lemon over top, and fold ingredients together. This pairs deliciously with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream.
