Avocado & Grape Tomato Salad
by Whole Foods

Serve with broiled salmon -- the simplicity is what sets it apart, so refrain from adding additional ingredients!

Serves 3

This delectable salad proves that fresh, high quality ingredients taste superb with little adornment. Halved grape tomatoes and avocados join onions, parsley, cilantro, lemon juice, extra virgin olive oil and sea salt in this perfect side dish or simple appetizer with tortilla chips. Can be prepared up to four hours ahead of serving, making it convenient for those summer days when you're constantly on the go.

1/4 white onion, chopped
2 avocados, chopped
High quality sea salt, such as Fleur de Sal

Method
In a non-reactive glass bowl toss together tomatoes, parsley, oil, lemon juice, and onions. Add avocados and salt and toss gently. Chill if not serving immediately.
