How to Cook Avocado and Tomato Salad

  1. Peel the avocados, halve them lengthways, remove the stone and thinly slice them (or you can cube them if you prefer). Slice the tomatoes (you can use sun dried tomatoes for a more intense taste), peel and slice the onion and finely dice the chilli.
  2. Lay the tomato slices on a serving plate, salt them to taste and drizzle a little of the olive oil over. In a large salad bowl, combine the avocado, onion, chilli, garlic, remaining olive oil, lemon juice and salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste. Mix these well then turn the salad over a few times with your finger tips to coat everything well in the oil and lemon juice. Heap the avocado-onion mix over the tomatoes and chop some fresh parsley over the top. Serve as a starter, a snack or as a main course with cold meat.

 
Mamtha Sunil Kumar MAMTHA SUNIL KUMAR'S HOT TIP:
Do you struggle to get the stone out of a halved avocado? Don't!! Take a sharp knife and hit the stone with the knife blade (watch your fingers) just enough for the blade to stick. Then gently turn the knife and the stone will twist and come loose.

Reviews of Avocado and Tomato Salad

Rating 5 out of 5 - Many cooks will make this recipe again May 15 2014
This is a delicious salad that is so simple and healthy. I love both avocadoes and tomatoes, and the two complement each other very well. One suggestion - serve this salad right away: if it sits too long, the avocado begins to soften and break down and kind of "melts" all over the tomatoes - it still TASTES delicious, but it LOOKS better - the colors are more vibrant if you serve it right away. I will definitely make this again and again!
