Given that we are 3 days overdue for a food shop, I wasn’t optimistic as I opened my fridge for lunch today. But to my delight as I pulled open the vegetable drawer I found that I still had a few treasures inside, namely all the ingredients for a tricolore salad!
This is one of my favourite salads – red ripe tomatoes, freshly torn basil, a drizzle of olive oil and a few cheeky slices of creamy mozzarella. Adding a soft, buttery avocado makes it even better I think.
I wrote last week about my discovery of a really gorgeous vegan smoked mozzarella by Mozzarisella. I went on to use it on a vegan bolognese and forgot I had somehow found enough self-discipline to save a bit for another day.
If you haven’t tried this salad before then I urge you to try it! It is very easy to make.
1 ripe avocado
12 cherry tomatoes
Handful of fresh basil
100g of Mozzarisella vegan smoked mozzarella
Drizzle of garlic-infused olive oil
Salt & freshly ground black pepper
Simply chop your avocado, tomatoes, basil and mozzarella and toss with the oil and seasoning. For variation you could add some balsamic vinegar or a splash of lemon juice, and add any other salad vegetable you like. I think sweetcorn would be a good one to add next time.
As it is Bank Holiday Monday and a day off work, I am now going to snuggle up with Baxter and watch Laurel & Hardy movies on YouTube 🙂
Have a great day everyone!
