Summer Salads: Tomato & Avocado Salad

If you like salads but want something unique, then Tomato & Avocado Salad might satisfy your taste buds. This salad is a perfect accompaniment for tacos or fajitas and is definitely a healthier alternative than refried beans or Spanish rice.

Tomato & Avocado Salad

1 roma tomato, diced, seeds removed
1 avocado, peeled & pitted, diced
1 tsp lemon juice
ground pepper, to taste

Please appropriate portions of diced tomato & avocado on plates for each family member (the ingredients above may be enough for a family of 4). Add a little bit of lemon juice on avocado to prevent browning. Sprinkle a little pepper on each serving to taste.

I have to admit that, on their own, I am not a tomato or avocado fan, but I really enjoy this salad. The tanginess of the tomato blends very well with the creaminess of the avocado. It made a great side dish to Steak Fajita Quesadillas.
