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