Salad Alternative


I LOVE salads, but really prefer all of the toppings more than the lettuce.  So… I’ve decided to start experimenting with salad “alternatives”. 

One of my experiments was the bread salad, and today I made a really simple salad out of avocados, heirloom tomatoes, olive oil, dill, parsley, lemon juice, salt and pepper!  The ingredients were actually very similar to guacamole – but not mashed, just left chopped in the bowl.  Yum!

It was such a nice summer dish – fresh, earthy, simple, and no mayo or other ingredients that would go bad being left outside for a while on a grill-out of picnic.
