I had a ripe avocado to use up and I was craving a caprese salad so I decided to combine the two. I am so glad I did! This was seriously delicious and healthy too. I loved how beautiful it looks and loved the flavors and textures were terrific. I love that a quick and simple recipe can be so gourmet. I highly recommend you try this one!

  1. Such a great combination of colours and flavours Pam!!
    Love it!
    Cheers,

  2. Hi Pam,
    I’m alsmost ashamed to admit I had to toss the last avocado in the compost pile last night. Oh how I wish I would have thought to prepare such a creative dish. Marion would have LOVED it! Well, I know for next time:) Thank you so much for sharing, Pam…(I did save the pit though to grow:)

  3. You can’t go wrong with avocado! Is there anything that avocado doesn’t make better? I feel like I can eat it with just about everything. Can’t wait to try this. We’re going to be planting our cherry tomato plants soon. This will be a great use for them : )

  4. You certainly did have a number one idea. Creamy avocados make everything better. I have been on an avocado kick because they have been showing up at the store in a ready to be eaten stage. Plus the look of it is color and elegant.

  5. Looks like a nice lunch or side dish. Sometimes the simplest recipes are the best!

  6. So fun! Makes me so sad I’m allergic to avocados!

    I eat an avocado almost every day. They are so delicious and healthy! I usually just sprinkle the avocado with lime juice and a little sea salt, but now you have me craving this!

  8. you put anything in an avocado bowl and i’ll devour it, but this is particularly refreshing and lovely!
