So last week I wanted to know how to speed up ripening avocados, well now they are all super ripe & I'm thinking of things to do rather than just the traditional guacamole.  This led to having this salad today, which was very very tasty & simple Smiley



Ingredients:

    * Tomatoes
    * Avocado
    * Mozzarella
    * Salad leaves
    * Sweetcorn
    * Balsamic vinegar
    * Olive oil

Firstly, roughly chop up tomatoes. I used cherry plum toms & some big beefy fellas. In a bowl add some olive oil and balsamic vinegar to the toms, and leave to settle for a little while.On a plate arrange some salad leaves (I used a mixed salad leaf pack and fresh rocket). To this pile on the tomatoes, chopped avocado, mozzarella and a sprinkle of sweetcorn. Drizzle a little more oil &  serve. Yum!

avocado and mozz have to be two of my favorite things out there. They are both so  light and refreshing.

Now it's making me hungry to think about it. But I do have fresh mozz and avocados...

That looks heavenly!

By the way, I use avocados on my absolute favorite sandwich:  grilled cheese, tomato and avocado.  It's super yummy!  Just fyi, since you said you were looking for more ways to use them Smiley

Grilled cheese & avocado sarnies sound great, as does adding it on top of pizza!

Excellent recipe!  I just made this tonight.  It's the first time a salad alone has filled me up!  (must be from the avocados and cheese!)
