Avocado Salad with Tomatoes, Mozzarella, and Basil Pesto – healthy recipe packed with nutrients and lots of fresh ingredients! Perfect Spring and Summer salad! Small fresh Mozzarella cheese balls are delicious when combined with avocado in this easy salad that also features red and yellow cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, and red onions. The dressing for this avocado salad couldn’t be easier to make – just combine fresh basil pesto with lemon juice! Basil pesto makes a perfect salad dressing as it is packed with olive oil. One of many reasons that I love Summer is that it’s a perfect time of the year to make salads. I’ve been making all kinds of salads, including my favorite beet salad with spinach, goat cheese, and cashews and strawberry spinach salad.
Well, now I’ve got another favorite! This recipe just screams Summer! I love using red and yellow cherry tomatoes (each sliced in half) in this avocado salad because they add natural color and look really good with the small fresh Mozzarella cheese balls and other diced ingredients.
So easy to make! Just combine all the ingredients together, toss with a simple basil pesto dressing and the salad is ready!
