¼cupfresh basilabout 8–10 leaves
Thickly slice the avocado and tomato.
Arrange on a plate along with the basil leaves.
Season well with salt and pepper. If desired, drizzle with balsamic vinegar and olive oil.
Dried basil can be used in a pinch, but use fresh to reap the benefits
Beefsteak tomatoes are the best variety to use for this salad
If you want it to be 'fork friendly', simply dice the tomatoes + avocado into bite sized chunks.
