A friend passed this recipe on to me, or at least a version of it. I’ve been meaning to try it for awhile and one night I had some avocados and tomatoes at their peak that needed used so I finally made it. I added a few other ingredients to our liking and while it isn’t really a salad… I wasn’t sure what it was. 🙂 Maybe a relish? Either way, it’s super yummy by itself, or with some grilled chicken (my favorite), or even on a burger.
As with anything containing fresh avocado, it just doesn’t keep well for long, so it’s best eaten the same day it’s made. Which… I suspect won’t be a problem.
AVOCADO, TOMATO, AND MOZZARELLA SALAD
2 avocados, chopped
3 tomatoes, chopped
8 oz ball fresh mozzarella, chopped
2 T fresh basil, chopped
2 shallots, finely diced
1 T olive oil
1 T lemon juice
salt and pepper to taste
Place the avocados, tomatoes, mozzarella, basil, and shallots in a shallow bowl. Sprinkle with the olive oil and lemon juice and very gently toss to combine. Season with salt and pepper. Serve immediately.
