Heirloom Tomato & Avocado Chopped Salad

Print Email

4 cups butter lettuce
2 large or 1 pint of cherry heirloom tomatoes
1 large avocado, peeled and diced
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup Trader Joe’s Cilantro Dressing (more or less to taste)
1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
Fresh ground pepper, to taste

If you don’t have a Trader Joes nearby, you can make the dressing by hand. I’m lazy. You can find the recipe here.

Rip the lettuce into small bite size portions and place in large bowl. Chop the tomatoes into bite size portions. Sprinkle with salt. (Makes all the difference.) If you like pepper sprinkle some of that on, too, as well as over the chunks of avocado. Add to the bowl.

Toss with dressing to coat. Try not to be too skimpy. The abundance of cilantro makes the flavors come alive. Split onto 2-4 plates (depending on how much you want to eat) and add feta cheese on top.
