It’s pretty hard to top a juicy, garden fresh, still-warm-from-the-sun tomato, but this comes pretty close. Creamy avocado stands in for cheese in our version of the classic Italian Caprese Salad. We don’t think you’ll miss it.



  • ½ ripe avocado
  • 1 small ripe tomato
  • ¼ cup fresh basil leaves (about 8–10)
  • Sea salt and black pepper
  • Balsamic vinegar, optional
  • Olive oil, optional


  1. Thickly slice the avocado and tomato.
  2. Arrange on a plate along with the basil leaves.
  3. Season well with salt and pepper. If desired, drizzle with balsamic vinegar and olive oil.
  4. Eat immediately.
