Easy Yet Beautiful Side: Bella's Avocado & Tomato Salad

Easy Yet Beautiful Side: Bella's Avocado & Tomato Salad

The other day BellaSugar told me about a super simple, yet incredibly tasty salad she recently made. Fresh, ripe tomatoes were gently tossed with avocados, red onion, scallions, lemon juice, and olive oil, almost like a chunkier version of guacamole. As a side, it is very versatile and pairs nicely with roast chicken or pork, a creamy pasta, or a meaty sandwich. To take a look at Bella's recipe,

Avocado & Tomato Salad

3-4 ripe tomatoes on the vine, cut into chunks
1/4 red onion, chopped
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
3 scallions both white and green part, chopped
2 avocados, diced
High quality sea salt, such as Fleur de Sal

  1. Combine all of the ingredients except the avocado and salt in a large mixing bowl.
  2. Gently fold in the avocado and toss lightly to coat.
  3. Season to tate with the salt. Set aside for ten minutes to allow flavors time to meld.
  4. Chill if not serving immediately and enjoy!

Serves 4.
