Avocado and Cherry Tomatoes Salad

Ingredients for Avocado and Cherry Tomatoes Salad

If you’re looking for an easy, healthy and vegetarian salad, this one meets all three criteria. If you’re lucky, you can get the avocado for 50 – 90 cents at Superstore, making it for a very cheap salad too! The secret is the vinaigrette: always get a good quality balsamic vinegar (I recommend the ones from Lina’s Market). And always mix the vinaigrette in advance, letting it rest for at least 5 – 10 minutes before using it.


6-10 cherry tomatoes

1/2 avocado

a handful of green salad mix (baby spinach, italian mix etc.)

1 green onion

1 Tbsp olive oil

1 Tbsp balsamic vinegar

1/2 tsp honey (optional)

1 tsp soy sauce (or a pinch of salt)

pinch of pepper

1 tsp dried or fresh parsley (or thyme)


  1. Mix the vinaigrette sauce in a separate bowl: add the oil, the vinegar, the soy sauce (or salt), the pepper and the parsley and  mix well. Add the green onion, cut into small pieces.
  2. In a salad bowl, put the salad greens, add the tomatoes cut in half, and the avocado cut into small cubes.
  3. Add the vinaigrette and mix well.
  4. Give the salad 10-15 minutes, then eat it with crackers or with naan bread.
