I enjoyed this recipe at a picnic 2 years ago, and finally asked my friend for the recipe. After craving it for so long, I was surprised at how easy it is to make. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. Cooking time is chill time.
- 3 avocados, ripe
- 3 tomatoes, vine ripened
- 8 ounces lowfat mozzarella cheese (block)
- 1 bunch fresh basil
- Slice avocado in half lengthwise, around the pit. Twist and separate halves. Whack pit with knife and twist to remove. Holding one of the halves in the palm of your hand, slice the avocado lengthwise, being careful not to slice through the skin. Slice crosswise to make a nice dice. Using a spoon, scoop the diced avocado into a medium size bowl. Repeat with 2nd half of avocado.
- Dice tomato and mozzarella, mix with avocado.
- Separate basil leaves from stalk and stack on top of each other. Roll them up lengthwise and slice thin. Separate and sprinkle into avocado mixture and toss. Toss with salt and pepper to taste. Chill for about an hour and serve.
I had a salad like this years ago and somehow forgot all about it. Its amazing, thanks for bringing it back to my tastebuds.
