Tomato & Avocado Salad with Feta Dressing – Recipe!

Print Friendly

Avocados are everywhere this season and nothing goes better with avocados than fresh tomatoes.  Like many people, I grow tomatoes in my garden, so during the Summer I have an abundance of these juicy fruits.  This recipe for Tomato & Avocado Salad with Feta Dressing is the perfect combination of creamy, sweet and salty using some of Summers best produce.

Feta Cheese is a sheep’s milk cheese –  tangy in taste and creamy in texture.  It crumbles nicely into the dressing and with a little shake – Feta Dressing is born.  The combination of fresh tomatoes and avocados with this dressing will soon be a favorite and it packs nicely for a picnic or party.

Ingredients

2 fresh tomatoes, any variety

1 avocado

1/4 cup red onion + 2 tablespoons, diced

1/3 cup feta cheese (get a block and crumble your own)

1/3 cup red wine vinegar

2 teaspoons agave nectar or honey

1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

1/3 cup avocado oil or olive oil

1/2 cup broccoli microgreens or sprouts of any kind

salt

pepper

7.  Spoon the dressing by tablespoonfuls on to the salad, I usually use about half the jar.  Stir to combine the ingredients.  Save the leftover dressing in the refrigerator for another salad.

8.  Take 1/2 cup of the microgreens and toss into the salad.  I love adding microgreens to all kinds of salads for added texture and flavor.  The broccoli variety are unique with lots of health benefits.
