Tomato Tricolore Salad : Low Carb


For some of us it's winter, but for those living in the Southern Hemisphere it's summer! Wherever you live if you'd like to enjoy a taste of summer how about this recipe suggestion... the name of the recipe is to reflect the red, white and green of the Italian flag!

Ingredients you will need:

Serves Four
270g Vittoria (or similar) tomatoes
1 extra large ripe and ready avocado
8 slices of buffalo mozzarella
2 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
6-8 fresh basil leaves

Here is what you need to do:
1. Remove the tomatoes from the vine and wash. Drain and cut into halves.
2. Slice the avocado into long strips and layer on a large serving dish. Arrange the mozzarella slices around the avocado. Scatter the cherry tomato halves over the plate.
3. To serve, drizzle with olive oil and season. Tear the basil leaves and sprinkle on top of the salad.

Each serving provides:
3.1g carbohydrate 0.2g fibre 6.1g protein 23.0 fat

All the best Jan

Very similar to a caprese salad. Plus avocado.
My wife and I enjoy these often. I'm trying my next one on a bed of salad greens.

We shall be giving this recipe a try, too, Jan. Loved the Pork and Brussels sprouts recipe from last week! That one will go on our menu plans for at least once a month!

Just popping in to let you know that we enjoyed this with our evening meal today. I used fresh mozzarella in place of the buffalo cheese. We both really liked it and will definitely be having it often.
