A refreshing summer salad that is a bit more substantial than a greens-based salad. This flavorful Tomato Avocado Salad is simple, colorful, and healthy too! We love to take advantage of the first bountiful harvest of tomatoes each season. Avocados and tomatoes compliment each other very well. Red onion ties the salad together and adds a needed crunch and zing. Cucumbers can be added as well if desired.
Dress it with cilantro, fresh lime juice, olive oil, salt, pepper, and a pinch of red pepper flakes, and you will feel great after eating this nutrient-packed salad.
