Healthy Avocado and Tomato Salad!

The weather is getting warmer and that means barbecue season!   The warm weather always gets me in the mood to grill.  This yummy avocado salad will go perfect with your next barbecue.

It’s healthy, fresh, and tasty!

Don’t be afraid of the avocados!  Avocados have almost 20 essential nutrients, including fiber, potassium, Vitamin E, B-vitamins and folic acid.  Avocados have both mono-saturated and polyunsaturated fat and by eating these “good” fats (in moderation) in place of saturated or trans fat can reduce blood cholesterol levels and decrease the risk of heart disease.  Check out avocado.org for more information.

The truth is, this salad would be even more awesome if it had chunks of fresh mozzarella cheese and bacon in it as well.  Since the hubs and I are really focusing on being healthy we left it out this time.  Don’t worry though… it was still awesome!


2 tomatoes, diced
1 avocado, diced
1 Tb balsamic vinaigrette.
1 Tb basil

***Mix the tomatoes, vinegar and basil together.  Gently stir in avocado chunks so that they do not mush together.

fresh mozzarella cheese, cubed
black beans
red peppers
