Tomato and Avocado Salad With a Tarragon Walnut Drizzle

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Diana 2

Turn a simple meal into an occasion. Big on flavour - while taking almost no time at all to prepare. Can be assembled up to two hours in advance, then simply add the dressing just before serving. Cooking time is for assembly, and does not included time needed for the dressing to sit. Created for the Craze-E Salad Contest.

Very cool salad. I loved the drizzle, and thought it to be perfect for us. It is a bit tart, but in a wonderful balanced way to pick up the taste of the avocado, tomato, and tarragon. Very easy to throw together at the end of the day, I had quickly put the dressing together earlier in the morning, so it was so great and ready to go. Yum! This will be my go to salad and dressing for a long time to come. Thank you!! Made for *Diabetic Spring Veggies* tag game. April 2010

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a glass jar or bowl, mix together the dressing ingredients. Allow to sit at room temperature for a few hours to allow flavours to blend. Dressing may then be refrigerated, but should be at room temperature for serving.
  2. Assembling:.
  3. On individual serving plates, lay a lettuce leaf, followed by a slice of tomato. Sprinkle with a bit of pepper.
  4. Now lay a generous slice of cheese (I use a vegetable peeler to slice the cheese) and top with a wedge of avocado.
  5. Just before serving, shake dressing throughly and drizzle over the salad, ensuring that you get some of the chopped walnuts. Garnish with a sprig of tarragon.
