Caprese Avocado Salad
It’s late summer. The tomatoes are at that moment of red, ripe perfection. The basil plant has grown to the size of a tree. Sure, you could make the same old caprese salad with tomatoes, mozzarella (or burrata, yum!) and basil. This time, branch out. Add avocado. Hey, skip the mozzarella altogether if you want.
Take your tomatoes, avocados and mozzarella and layer them on a plate. Rip basil leaves and scatter over top. Drizzle with good olive oil, salt and pepper.
The creaminess of the avocados makes the cheese unnecessary. If you want to use both, you’ll have the most awesome salad ever.
