Healthy and flavorful. This is the best way to describe my tomato avocado salad. I have to admit that I am a bit biased because I love tomatoes, especially heirloom tomatoes. Add avocados and I am in heaven! This is a simple side salad that accompanies any dish. I especially like the tomato avocado salad with chicken or a hearty fish, such as sword fish or grouper. Looking for a healthy and easy lunch idea? Scoop the tomato avocado salad over a bed of fresh arugula and you are all set.
Tomatoes are a great source of lycopene. Lycopene is a powerful antioxidant that boosts immunity and helps protect against certain cancers. Avocados contain healthy fats that protects against heart disease. Cilantro contains protective phytonutrients and is rich in Vitamin A, Vitamin K, Folate and Potassium. I am a huge fan of cilantro and add it to so many of my favorite dishes.
You will not go wrong with this dish. Give it a try and let me know what you think. I think you will absolutely love my tomato avocado salad. Enjoy!!
