Avacado and Tomato Salad

"Found this recipe on an African Menu website. Canned peach slices may be added to the Avocado Salad-in which case use one slice of tomato and two to three peach slices. This Lemon Dressing is excellent on a tossed green salad or hearts of lettuce. It is light and easy to make. Posted for ZWT."

  1. So, I don't have any canned fruit at all... any suggestions for a substitution, or can I leave the fruit out?


  1. Well, I must say, peaches are the best! And then you have lettuce, avocado, mater's, and love just abounds. Seriously, a great, fabulous salad, that is as unique in it's own right, but so equally lovely, and very tasteful. Presentation is enormously beautiful, and so right to be set before a king. But me, I took this lovely creation, sat upon our farm porch, and devoured with delight. Did not change anything other then use peach juice from my own canned peaches. Thanks, little peach tree for giving us such delightful juice! Chef Jean, you have a winner here! Made for ZWT 7
  2. We really liked this unusual recipe- the dressing in particular was lovely, although I did make one little change. I had canned peaches in juice, so used the juice for the dressing. I added the required amount and the dressing was very tart so I added the same amount of juice again and it was lovely!
