Recipe comes from CookingLight, I am putting it here to use later when our earth box is going nuts. The recipe specifies heirloom tomatoes and I am sure that would be the absolute best!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. To prepare the dressing, combine the first 9 ingredients in a small food processor or blender; process 30 seconds or until pureed, scraping sides of bowl occasionally.
  2. Cover the dressing and chill.
  3. To prepare the salad, slice each tomato crosswise into 4 equal slices (about 1/2 inch thick).
  4. Place 1 tomato slice on each of 4 salad plates; sprinkle slices evenly with 1/4 teaspoon salt.
  5. Top each serving with a few onion pieces and about 1 tablespoon of avocado.
  6. Repeat layers 3 times, ending with avocado.
  7. Drizzle 2 tablespoons of dressing over each serving; sprinkle with black pepper, if desired.

An attractive and tasty salad. The dressing is similar to ranch, but with refreshing lime; so good. Made for ZWT5.

I scaled this down for one and enjoyed it for lunch along with some plantains. The cilantro was a nice touch! Thanks! Made for ZWT4-Fancy Feinschmeckers!
