Brunch Recipe: Avocado Tomato Salad

Avocado Tomato Salad
The Avocado Tomato Salad is perfect for warm weather since it involves no cooking. Serve as a side with eggs or scrambled tofu, add to your favorite sandwich, or just eat it as is!

  • 1 avocado, sliced into small pieces
  • 1/2 cup of grape tomatoes, sliced in half
  • dash of sea salt
  • dash of Trader Joe's Lemon Pepper
  • dash of Pino's Press Limone Oreganato Olive Oil (or other nice olive oil)
  • 1 splash of balsamic vinegar

    Toss all of the ingredients together and enjoy!

    While you could substitute with plain pepper and olive oil, Trader Joe's Lemon Pepper and Pino's Press Limone Oreganato Olive Oil are two of my all time favorite ingredients.

    The Lemon Pepper consists of black peppercorns, sea salt, onion, lemon rind, garlic and lemon oil. I use it in everything from soups to mashed potatoes!

    Pino's Olive Oil
    The oil has a lovely Meyer lemon smell, and very subtle olive flavor. If you are local to the Philadelphia area, you can find it at Di Bruno Brothers (1730 Chestnut Street).
