Guest Post: Taste of Summer Salad

My adventures in Ohio...and Pennsylvania are continuing today. We watched our oldest nephew, Levi, graduate from high school over the weekend. Now, we're planning a visit to Frank Lloyd Wright's Fallingwater...and we're headed to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame tomorrow! While I'm gone, my #SundaySupper friend from Culinary Adventures with Camilla is sharing a fabulous salad with you today. To me, there's not much better during Summer than a juicy, ripe tomato paired with creamy mouth is watering. Enjoy!

Luscious, flavorful tomatoes are harbingers of Summer. When they begin to appear at our local farmers’ markets, I scoop them up by the basket and dream of simple dishes to highlight their sun-kissed sweetness. This salad, pairing tomatoes and avocado, does that and can be whipped up within minutes. It’s a perfect dish to stave off hunger after a day at the beach! It’s almost not worth calling this a recipe, but because you have to try it, I’m sharing it with the readers of The Weekend Gourmet. Enjoy!
