Tomato Salad with Mozzarella & Avocado

Here is another interesting version of spring inspired salad. Instead of spreading out pieces all over the plate or making a mix, you can assemble them into mini-tower. You family and friends at the table will be pleasantly surprised by this. Who said all healthy things can’t be beautiful as well?


  • 1 large tomato
  • 1 fresh buffalo mozzarella (in water), drained or other mozzarella
  • 1 avocado, peeled and sliced
  • minced fresh basil
  • 1/2 cup arugula salad
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • salt and freshly ground pepper


Slice tomato horizontally into 3 or 4 slices depending on the size of your tomato. Slice mozzarella cheese into slices and place one slice on top of each tomato slice. Next, cut the avocado into thin slices and place on top of the mozzarella layer. Drizzle olive oil and lemon juice over the top and lightly sprinkle with basil. Season with salt and pepper.

Reassemble the tomato, with the arugula salad in between each slice. Drizzle with more oil, and serve.
