Basil and tomato sitting in a tree…

I am often asked how I create my salads. I can honestly say that I take the fresh produce that I have in my fridge and on my counter, mix them together and create healthy and DELICIOUS salads. They are wonderful. Every one of them. I always add fresh herbs, extra virgin olive oil, salt and pepper for a dressing that enhances the rich flavors of the fresh ingredients.

This is a refreshing and light salad that can be enjoyed as a main dish or as a side salad.

  • Romain, spinach or spring mix
  • fresh ripe tomato slices
  • a half of a ripe avocado, cubed
  • a tablespoon of crumbled feta, optional
  • a handful of fresh basil leaves, chopped thinly
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • a drizzle of olive oil

Layer it together in a shallow bowl or on a plate and you have a wonderful healthy meal! Pair it with a nice piece of crusty bread or a bowl of warm, comforting soup and enjoy!
