Avocado-Tomato Salad : A Fast Fix with 3 Ingredients

Summer brings the heat but also brings salad season, which I happen to love.  I’m sure many of you have seen (and perhaps even tried) this Avocado-Tomato Salad but for those who haven’t, it’s a great dish to carry to a cookout, have on fajita day, and even mash up the leftovers (if any) to serve as a dip.    I have some great salad recipes but sometimes I just want something simple.  This recipe calls for 3 ingredients and should most definitely be served on a hot day!  And if avocados aren’t your thing, how about a little Tomato & Cucumber Salad?

Avocados can be expensive so make sure to buy them when they’re on sale.  I’ve been trying hard to plan meals around sale items and I’ve already been saving a ton.  If serving that day, make sure to pick avocados that aren’t too hard.  If I’m on a strict budget for the month, I go with Roma tomatoes but I love and prefer the ones on the vine.   What type of tomatoes do you like?


  • Avocados
  • Tomatoes
  • 8oz Bottle of Italian Dressing


Cut and slice up avocados and tomatoes; pour dressing over.  Keep cool.  I’d chill for about 30 minutes before serving.

What is your favorite fast fix during the Summer season?
