Tomato Avocado Buffalo Mozzarella Salad

There is nothing better than Insalada Caprese but add in some avocado slices and you will be suprised how lovely this addition makes the salad.  I used heirloom tomatoes for this salad the other night.  It was so sweet...

The Recipe:

Tomato Avocado Buffalo Mozzarella Salad

1 large heirloom tomato (or beefsteak)
1 large avocado
1 ball of buffalo mozzarella
3 large leaves of fresh basil
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1 teaspoon of kosher
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Serves 4

Cut tomato, avocado and mozzarella in wedges.  Salt the tomato to bring out its flavor.  Arrange on a platter and drizzle with the olive oil, balsamic vinegar.  Roll basil leaves stacked together and slice (this is called chiffonade) the basil in thin strips.  Sprinkle over the salad.  Serve by itself or over your favorite lettuce.

Happy Eating!
