Avocado Caprese Salad

Caprese salads are my favorite.  But now that I am dairy free, I can't eat it anymore.   I saw this recipe that subbed avocado for the cheese.  Brilliant!  We used fresh tomatoes and basil from our garden and served it as a salad with dinner.  But it would be great served as an appetizer for a party as well.  Definitely a keeper!

medium tomatoes
olive oil
salt and pepper
fresh basil


Cut the avocado around the equator, remove pit and peel.  Cut into small rounds.  Slice the tomato and salt lightly.

Layer the tomatoes, avocado and basil leaves.  Drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with salt and fresh ground pepper.  Serve immediately.
