Avocado Salad with Warm Tomato-Basil Vinaigrette

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Geema

Warming the vinaigrette makes this salad special and really brings out the aroma of the fresh basil. It's from Martha Stewart's Quick Cook. I think that adding some grilled shrimp or chicken to this recipe would make a wonderful luncheon dish.

Geema, Thanks for posting this delish recipe!I followed it almost exactly!!I didn`t have red wine vinegar so I used Balsamic vinegar and topped it with toasted pine nuts. The avocado just made this so creamy dreamy good! Lots of flavor and texture! Very easy to make!
