Tomato And Avocado Salad

Late summer is a time when many veg box schemes and home veg growers have a glut of tomatoes. If you’ve got some that are really ripe and full of flavour, then this simple salad is really delicious.


Serves 4

  1. 4-6 medium tomatoes
  2. 2 spring onions (optional)
  3. 1 ripe avocado
  4. 200g lettuce leaves (any combination)

Dressing (optional)

  1. 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
  2. Juice of &fract12; lemon (optional)
  3. 1 tablespoon olive oil
  4. &fract12; teaspoon runny honey
  5. Handful mixed summer herbs, chopped (e.g. parsley & chives)


  1. Wash the tomatoes and spring onions.

  2. Chop the tomatoes roughly. Slice the spring onions.

  3. Peel the avocado and remove the stone.

  4. Chop the avocado flesh into small chunks.

  5. Wash the lettuce leaves and dry well.

  6. Mix all the dressing ingredients together, until well combined (a small screw-top jar is the easiest way to do this).

  7. Mix all the salad ingredients together and drizzle the dressing on top. Serve immediately.
