Happy Wednesday!! I've been waiting for the right moment to bring out this mega salad and today's the day. Welcome Avocado and Heirloom Tomato Salad!!
I've never been one to wait for permission, but now that it's officially spring, I'm planning on doing some backyard / picnic / outside / park style entertaining ALL THE TIME. There's nothing better than an outdoor soiree and big giant boards full of food like this Avocado and Heirloom Tomato Salad. Just prep all your ingredients, arrange them on a gorgeous board, and let you guests go to town. Between this and the Bruschetta bar, it really doesn't get any better!!
If you really wanted to up the ante you could add some fresh mozz!!

This recipe is insanely delicious!! The flavours are incredible. Make sure you make the cilantro vinaigrette which is not shown on the same recipe. You can find it on Gaby's website though.
This is so quick and easy, beautiful to look at and flavourful. I am going to make this a staple this summer. Thanks Gaby!
I can't wait for our weather to warm up so I can have this on repeat!
This salad has got me ready for summer!
Good food requires a lot of vegetables. I like the tomato salad
I want to eat this beauty all spring and summer long!!!
I know I shouldn't be shocked by now that you are THE AVOCADO MAVEN, but this looks absolutely amazing, and it's making my smoothie lunch seem positively lackluster. Want want want! <3
Beautiful salad! It sounds delicious!!
So excited about Spring! Your beautiful salad is the perfect intro!!!
We have a few more cold winter-like days in my region. However as soon as the warm weather and sunny days arrive, I will be enjoying this refreshing salad. Thanks for sharing this recipe, Gaby. Happy Saturday 🙂
