Here in southern California, the weather is beginning to warm up and spring is most definitely in the air! As the evenings last a little bit longer thanks to the later sunset, our family spends a lot of time gathered in the kitchen which leads directly the the backyard. The kids play, we cook, and the time together before the sun goes down is priceless. This avocado and tomato salad is a family favorite for warm spring and summer days
What does this quick meal mean? More time spent together on beautiful spring evenings! We like to open all of the windows, let the kids run in and out between the kitchen and the backyard, and savor each fleeting moment of sunlight! Time saving dinners like this allow us to enjoy more of our day! Quick-prep meals are essential for busy families.
Avocado and Tomato Salad
Today we’ve mixed a little bit of comfort food with a fresh family favorite salad. The two combined create a wonderful spring meal!
What makes this salad the best is that it actually gets tastier if you prepare it early and allow the ingredients to marinate together in the refrigerator. We like to chop up all of the ingredients in the afternoon, and bring it out with dinner in the early evening.
Use as much dressing as you prefer on a normal salad. In fact, you can even use another salad dressing if you prefer. But, the light taste of the Italian dressing pairs wonderfully with the hearty chicken pot pie.
You Will Need
- 4 ripe avocados
- 2 large tomatoes
- 1/2 red onion (thinly sliced)
- Italian dressing
- Remove the skin and the seed from the avocados and cut the avocados into small, bite-sized chunks.
- Slice the large tomatoes into small pieces.
- Slice the red onion into very thin slices (as pictured).
- Place the avocado, tomato and onions in a bowl or dish and gently stir in the Italian dressing.
