Sliced Heirloom Tomato and Avocado Salad with Basil and Shaved Parmesan

Sliced Heirloom Tomato and Avocado Salad with Basil and Shaved Parmesan

This really isn’t much of a recipe but it was so delicious I had to share it with you. There were some lovely heirloom tomatoes at the market and I had avocado, fresh basil, and shaved parmesan at home. I decided to layer them together on a plate then season them with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste then drizzled some white balsamic vinegar and olive oil on top. It was a huge hit with my entire family and we gobbled up every last bite. This salad paired nicely with the chicken thighs and brown rice I served it with.

  1. I do a version of this with avocado, tomatoes, cucumber, cilantro, lime juice and salt. Delicious!

  2. I’m all for simple and delicious Pam! I’ve been on an avocado kick lately. For some reason it just never occurred to me to include it in a tomato salad. Yours looks so refreshing! I must try it with the last of the tomatoes:)

    Thanks for sharing, Pam…
