Avocado and tomato salad is one of the simplest, tastiest and most nutritious salads you can make in under five minutes. Leave the dressing at the store, you won’t need it.
Before I get to this avocado and tomato salad recipe, let me show you my resident squirrel. As you can see from this picture, I have competition in picking avocados from my tree.

He’s been eating three a day lately! He starts on one, decides to eat some of another, then chews up a third. So it seems I’ll have to start picking faster than he does!

This is one of my favorite (and easiest) ways to prepare avocados.
Avocado and Tomato Salad
Ingredients for salad for 3 or 4 servings:
- 2 large or 3 medium ripe avocados, peeled and sliced
- 2 or 3 tomatoes, sliced
- good quality extra virgin olive oil, about 2 tbsp
- Kosher or sea salt
- good quality red wine vinegar (this is not a $3 bottle of vinegar, but at 7.5% acidity, it is a stronger vinegar than normal 5 or 6% bottles – I am a vinegar aficionada so I always try to find the strongest, but buy one that is made in Italy)
Place the sliced avocados and tomatoes in a bowl, then drizzle on the oil.
Next, sprinkle with some Kosher or sea salt. You can always add more later if needed.
If you are going to omit anything in this salad, skip the vinegar, but do NOT omit the salt, this is what gives it flavor.
Now add a little vinegar, to taste, if desired. You could substitute lemon juice if preferred.
Make sure you added enough oil; you want to have some at the bottom of the bowl.
I love to serve this avocado and tomato salad with some wonderfully crusty no-knead bread! Using organic flour, it’s healthy and delicious!
