Such a simple salad with a very simple dressing but takes you away from the typical "lettuce" salad. Now that tomatoes couldn't taste better...USE THEM IN EVERYTHING...haha!!! The tomato season seems so short I really do love to incorporate fresh ones into just about anything I make and salads are a perfect fit.


10 medium tomatoes sliced to 1/4 inch
3 large ripe mangoes peeled and sliced to 1/4 inch
2 large ripe avocados peeled and sliced to 1/4 inch
3 large shallots sliced thin
2 cups fresh basil thinly sliced
1/4 cup + 1 tbl red wine vinegar
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

In a small bowl combine red wine vinegar with the olive oil and season with salt. Add the sliced shallots and 1 cup of the basil and toss well.

Arrange the tomatoes on a platter with the mangoes and avocados. Drizzle with the dressing and garnish with the extra basil.

This makes about 10 servings so adjust your ingredients accordingly.

It is so refreshing served at a summer bbq and takes about 15 minutes to make!
