Tomato, Onion, Avocado Salad

Posted by on

If you are making to bring to a potluck, slice the onions ahead, but plan on cutting and assembling on site, right before serving. Do not refrigerate the tomatoes or you will destroy their flavor and make their texture mealy.

Ingredients

  • 3-4 fresh large tomatoes, sliced
  • 1/2 red onion, sliced
  • 2 avocados, peeled and cut into bite-sized chunks
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • Red wine vinegar (a good, strong red wine vinegar)
  • Extra virgin olive oil (the best quality)
  • Salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper

Method

Place a layer of sliced tomatoes on a large serving platter. Arrange the slivers of red onions and the chunks of avocado over the tomatoes. Sprinkle with parsley, garlic, and oregano. Drizzle red wine vinegar and olive oil over the platter. Sprinkle with salt and freshly ground black pepper.

Serve immediately. Do not refrigerate.
