avocado and tomato salad

I love this simple salad with avocado and tomatoes and the easiest dressing ever. I'm officially addicted, and it's healthy!

I think I could eat avocados every day. I mean for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. In fact, I want one right now. Wouldn’t it be nice to have an avocado tree?

Not happening in this part of the country – ha!

Thankfully, there are plenty of avocados to be found at the local market. And avocados taste even better when they are paired with a good tomato. We really love the Campari tomatoes, which are hothouse tomatoes that seem to have an amazing flavor year-round.

This is how easy this salad is:

Peel your cucumber, and chop it up. Cut your avocado in half, remove the pit, and then score it as shown in the photo, then scoop the flesh out with a spoon. For the tomato, wash and dry, then chop it up.

Place everything into a bowl and top with lemon juice and olive oil. Season with salt and pepper and you are ready to eat!
