Avocado, Mozzarella and Tomato Salad
When trying to slim down for summer, start by making healthy salads a lunchtime staple. This Avocado, Mozzarella Tomato salad is simple to make and is a perfect meal for an al fresco lunch with friends.
– 2 avocados, sliced
– 2 ripe tomatoes
– 1 pound mozzarella
– 1 ½ ounce bunch of fresh basil leaves
– ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
– ¼ cup balsamic vinegar
– Salt and pepper to taste
With a small knife, cut the little stem end out of the tomato using a serrated knife, cut the tomatoes into 1/3 inch slices. Slice the mozzarella 1/4 inch thick. Alternate slices of Avocado, tomato, mozzarella and basil leaves like playing cards on individual plates. Drizzle on the olive oil and vinegar. Season with salt and pepper.
Always switch it up. Today I made a variation of this recipe with just avocados, baby tomatoes, salt, pepper and Tajin seasoning. It was just as tasty and goes great on the side of an omelette or on whole grain toast.
