Avocado Tomato Salad

 Delicious with Septembers garden fresh tomatoes. 

Salad for Two:
  • 1 large ripe avocado
  • 1 tomato, try to find one the same size as your avocado
  • feta cheese
  • balsamic vinegar
  • lime juice
  1. Cut avocado in half. Remove stone and peel each half.
  2. Place each half on a plate and carefully make slices all the way along but not quite to the bottom.
  3. Squeeze the juice of a piece of lime over each avocado.
  4. Cut tomato in half. Remove any seeds with a small spoon. 
  5. Slice thinly and tuck a slice of tomato between the slices of avocado.
  6. Top with crumbled feta cheese.
  7. Drizzle with balsamic vinegar. (or you can use an oil and vinegar type dressing, or more lime juice)
  8. Give your salad a grind of fresh black pepper.


  1. ripe tomato, ripe avocado, feta cheese, balsamic vinegar....with those luscious gifts, no matter how you wrap it, stand it upright, lay it all flat, drizzle with the vinegar - it can't help but be wonderFULL.
    Just make sure you get a little of each on your fork with each mouth-full. OH. MY.

  2. This looks amazing!! With the fresh tomatoes out now it would be absolutely delicious! Great pic! I can almost taste it! Rhoda

  3. Hi,
    I have a blessing of tomatoes. :-) Kind of coming out of my ears in the garden. LOL
    I will be making this one, we love tomato and avocado.

  4. So pretty. And a great vitamin combo. It almost looks like some crumbled walnuts on there which might be good too!
