Avocado and Tomato Salad Recipe | foodiecrush.com (2)

After an amazingly late summer start thanks to one of the rainiest springs we’ve had in a long time, my harvest is finally coming on. Once I bite into the juicy, warm nectar that has become a home-grown cherry tomato, my answer to the question, “Is tending my home garden worth it?” is without hesitation, a “hell yes.” At this time of year, I find it easy to veer toward tomato recipes that are more caprese-style, studded with basil and balsamic vinegar. But today I’m going off the grid and putting my balsamic in the back seat.

Inspired by an avocado and onion salad my husband and I came to crave from a favorite Cuban restaurant (and that I always asked for tomatoes to be added to), I’ve embellished their inspiration and made it my own with creamy avocados, onion, homegrown tomatoes and lick-loving licoricey-tarragon—just ’cause I’m an herb-loving kind of girl. Sometimes the salad gets more tomatoes, sometimes more avocado, just depends on what I have on hand. Today, it’s pretty lycopene loaded thanks to my heirloom cherry ‘mater harvest.

Avocado, Onion and Tomato Salad

This simple tomato salad is an easy side dish for any dinner or makes a great lunch.

Ingredients

  • 1 large tomato sliced in thick slices
  • ½ avocado sliced
  • 2 slices red onion I prefer mine nearly shaved
  • 6 cherry tomatoes halved
  • sprig of fresh tarragon
  • 1 T fruity olive oil the best you can afford
  • ½ teaspoon champagne vinegar

Instructions

  • Put tomatoes, avocado and sliced onion on a small plate, sprinkle with tarragon leaves and dress with the olive oil and vinegar. Add kosher or sea salt and some pepper to taste. The olive oil is really the key and main flavor so add more to taste and make sure its good and fruity to complement the freshness of the other ingredients.

    This was a beautiful salad. I found that it needed more salt and acid, but once I tweaked it a bit, it was delicious. Thanks for the recipe!

    What fruit flavored olive oil did you use for the tomato, avacado and onion salad?

      Hi Brenda, I used a lemon infused extra virgin olive oil but if you purchase your olive oil at a specialty store, ask them for a fruity flavored olive oil…it’s more about the olives and the processing than actually adding fruit.

    Your avo-tomato recipe has been my breakfast, lunch, and dinner for the past three weeks. There is nothing more satisfying than the two together with a bit of salt and pepper. Delicious list, again!

    I love avocados, especially in salsas and salads. I’ve even tried them in a dessert inspired by the Lava Flow drink we had in Hawaii for our honeymoon. The Avocado, Onion and Tomato Salad, and Soba Noodle Salad with Avocado and Mango are definitely on my list to try.

    The recipes and photos are all beautiful!

    I love avos and make raw vegan avocado ice cream. And also raw vegan chocolate mousse with them. No one ever guesses the “secret” ingredient is avocado.
