Avocado Tomato Salad

Tomato-Avocado-Salad-1Avocados. Perhaps the best food in all of creation. I really do like them, and they’re very good-for-you – but I think we’ve talked about that already.

But, really, this simple salad has amazing flavor. And it even has a ripple effect – everything I put on my plate after the salad tasted 10 times better because it was seasoned with the leftover dressing.

Soooo, let’s not waste any more time and get right to making this fabulous dish – so we can eat it for lunch today!
