Avocado Tomato Salad


This is something I have always made from scratch, but never had measurements for. I was excited to try it out when I found it on pinterest and see how it held up to the one I compile. It is just as yummy. Since avocado can get quite expensive, I save this dish for times when avocado goes on a good sale. In Southern California, I admit to being pretty lucky with avocado prices, but keep your eye out for a sale. Often when there is a great sale here, the only avocado left is unripe. That's not a big deal for us because I buy the unripe avocado and just wait a bit until they are ready. I found a great way to tell if an avocado is ready (without squishing), check out our Kitchen Remedy section to find that tip!

The recipe states that this is one serving, but I think it yields enough for two easily, depending on appetites. It is such a light and healthy dish but it also full of flavor. The lemon juice keeps the avocado from browning slightly, and keeps for a few hours, however, I would not prepare this an entire day in advance. The few hours allow all the flavors to mingle, without discoloring. If desired adding onion could be a nice touch as well.
