Avocado, mozzarella and tomato salad

Simple at its best. Use a creamy, ripe, avocado hass and the best tomatoes you can find; nice and ripe (not straight from fridge).

Add some good buffalo mozzarella, peppery extra virgin olive oil and a grinding of salt and black pepper.

Beautiful.

  • 1 ball of buffalo mozzarella
  • 2 large ripe, juicy tomatoes or use one ripe beef tomato
  • 1 avocado hass
  • fresh basil
  • watercress (optional)
  • 1 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil

Dress with the oil, vinegar and seasoning.

That’s all!

Nutrition Info

Tomatoes

Tomatoes are rich in lycopene which is a pokey antioxidant. Antioxidants are like bouncers at a night club, they go around finding stray electrons that are busy causing trouble in your body, and find them a love partner so they can both stay in and cuddle on the sofa.

Tomatoes are also a brilliant source of vitamin C, which supports skin and connective tissue health as well as immunity and iron absorption. The biotin in tomatoes is good for controlling blood sugar.

Avocado

Avocados provide health benefits regarding blood sugar control, insulin regulation, fulness and decreased risk of excess inflammation. Their silky, creamy flesh contains healthy monounsaturated fats as well as folate, vitamin K, copper and pantothenic acid which helps energy production and fat metabolism.

 

Good honest nutrition

I love things that are indescribable, like the taste of an avocado or the smell of a gardenia.
