Avocado, Tomato and Sweet Onion Salad

I had a lot of cooking to do, for the next three days, and this salad struck me as just the right salad, to make.  It might have something to do with the fact that I had bought a multiple pack of avocados from Costco and they were sitting there.  I love them but tend to forget about them.  If I am making a salad, in a hurry, I stick to greens and don’t bother with even tomatoes or cucumbers.  When, I make for the family or company, I add a little something.  This is my little something from CD Kitchen

Avocado, Tomato And Sweet Onion Salad


2 medium avocados
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1 pint cherry tomatoes
1/4 medium-sized sweet onion (such as Vidalia or Maui)
3 tablespoons rice vinegar  (flavored with basil and oregano)
1 tablespoon olive oil
salt and black pepper to taste

1/2 teaspoon sugar


Peel avocado and remove pit. Cut avocado into 1 inch chunks and sprinkle with lemon juice.

Wash tomatoes, cut each in half and add to bowl with the avocado.

Slice the onion very thin and add to the bowl.

Sprinkle sugar over the vegetable.

Sprinkle vinegar over the vegetables, season with salt and pepper .

Drizzle oil over the mixture and gently stir until all ingredients are well combined. Serve on a lettuce leaf, if desired.
