Today I am featuring an Avocado, Tomato and Mozzarella Salad, perfect to enjoy during the warmer weather which is apparently about to come our way here in the UK. A friend bought this to our university tutorial this week, and we all absolutely loved it. I have to say, although I have often made an Italian style salad with just the tomatoes and mozzarella, for some reason, I had never previously considered adding Avocado to the dish, but now I am converted!
Avocado is definitely the vegetarian's best friend as it contains monounsaturated fats, - typically found in meats, fish, and dairy products, so it is a great food replacement for Vegetarians and Vegans.
This recipe isn't so much of a recipe, but more of a meal idea. None the less, this dish would make a terrific lunchtime salad. It also looks great on the table as part of a larger buffet meal. You could jazz it up with perhaps a few black olives added too, and a nice glass of wine to accompany it as you eat alfresco!
I hope you enjoy making (and eating) it!
