Ingredients

  • 3 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 Tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 small clove garlic chopped
  • 2 Tablespoons chopped basil + a few leaves extra for garnish
  • 2 medium to large tomatoes cut into wedges
  • 1 avocado cubed
  • Pinch salt

Instructions

  • To make the dressing: in a blender, blend extra virgin olive oil, balsamic vinegar, garlic, and 2 Tablespoons chopped basil until completely combined.
  • In a bowl, toss tomatoes and avocado. Drizzle with desired amount of dressing. Top with a pinch of salt and garnish with a few leaves of basil (chopped or whole).

Notes

You will have leftover dressing, since this makes enough for at least two salads. Put any extra dressing in a covered container in the refrigerator and use within a couple of days for maximum freshness.
