This lovely salad is such a colorful and flavorful dish. I made it for a dinner party recently and it was devoured by all.  It is a simple dish to prepare and only takes minutes to throw together. You can’t go wrong with this beautiful salad!

Serves ~5-7.

Ingredients:

  • 4-5 large heirloom tomatoes, various colors
  • 1 cup bocconcini (small mozzarella balls), halved
  • 1 avocado, sliced
  • 1 small handful fresh basil, chopped
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • balsamic reduction or glaze (you can find bottles of this at Whole Foods, or you could used aged, quality balsamic vinegar which has a thicker consistency)
  • sea salt/black pepper

Arrange your tomatoes on a large platter and then layer on the mozzarella, basil and avocado. Drizzle the olive oil over top along with a generous amount of balsamic reduction. Finish off with a dash of sea salt and black pepper.
