Sweet Cherry Tomatoes & Avocado Salad
Hey you? Yes You! are you looking at the Picture above, now be honest does that look mouth watering to you? I know it does you see vine ripen cherry tomatoes, nice and firm green avocados, and firm and fresh cucumber and what do you get=My Sweet Cherry Tomatoes & Avocado Salad, This salad is amazing, its healthy and just full of freshness and it is the perfect salad dish to serve for any out door BB-Q or any out door gathering for the upcoming summer months. Lets face it changing up the side salad is good for the summer months while I have nothing against serving just your regular old salad with ranch dressing or Caesar having a variety in your disposal is just being a good cook right? the one upside to this salad is that it has no mayo~I use a very simple and very summer hot appropriate vinaigrette that kicks up the freshness to another level.
Citrus Vinaigrette, the combination of Orange, lemon & lime makes this vinaigrette just pop with citrus and full of freshness, I love this vinaigrette and you will to trust me~it is so so good with the salad not just this salad but for any other salad that you can think of.
Tips to make this Salad even more delicious:
Add some black beans or some nice sweet corn, some nice bell peppers is great, even fennel
Chill the salad before serving at least 30 minutes to an hour
Make it a main dish: grill up chicken or a nice flank steak, use the vinaigrette as a marinade and shaved Parmigiano Regiano for a nice cheese action and punctuation
For the seafood lovers: Poached Lobster tail, scallops and grilled shrimp or Salmon
