Avocado, Tomato & Mozzarella Salad

You know how sometimes people think hot girls are automatically stupid? Like there’s no way that something can look that good on the outside and not be either dumb or awful on the inside? Well, I think this salad is that hot girl. And this one actually reads Dostoyevsky for fun and got a perfect score on her ACT.
(Incidentally, I would hate that chick.)

What I’m sayin’ is there’s substance here as well as pretty. The avocado and cheese are rich, the tomatoes are juicy and tangy, and the croutons give you the perfect amount of crunch. Dress all that up in Balsamic and drive it around town in your new convertible? It will be like Weird Science in here. And everybody wants that. (Minus Chet.)

Balsamic Vinaigrette:
1 tbsp Dijon mustard
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
2 tsp honey
3/4 cup olive oil
juice of half a lemon
salt to taste

  1. Mix all ingredients except oil.
  2. Slowly add oil while constantly whisking until it emulsifies.

Salad:
4 tomatoes, chopped
2 orange tomatoes, chopped
2 yellow tomatoes, chopped
1 ripe avocado, chopped
1.5 cups of diced mozzarella
1 cup of fresh croutons
salt to taste
1 tbsp mint or basil (optional)

  1. Mix together and toss in dressing.
  2. Eat and bask in the afterglow.

  1. I love that you used yellow tomatoes, such a vibrant ingredient. The combination between soft cheese and avocados with crunchy croutons is very intriguing.
