It's Tomato Time!

We are struggling with the drought this summer, but thanks to so many dedicated and hard working small farms in the area, we are still able to get fresh veggies at our local farm stands and farmer's markets. Here is an easy salad using some of my summertime favorites along with basil from the garden.

Red and Yellow Cherry Tomatoes
Haas Avocado
Kalamata Olives - pitted
Fresh Mozzarella Cheese
Fresh Basil
Olive Oil

Halve cherry tomatoes and Kalamata olives, cube avocado and mozzarella cheese and add all to bowl. Chop fresh basil and add to bowl. Drizzle a small amount of olive oil over all, toss gently and sprinkle with flake salt and fresh ground black pepper. Adjust all amounts to your taste.
