Inslada Tri Colore (Three Color Salad) made with tomatoes, mozzarella, and basil, drizzled with olive oil, and seasoned to taste with salt and pepper is a popular Italian antipasto that can also be served as a salad.
Avocado and tomato salad is a variation replacing the mozzarella with avocado reducing saturated fat and sodium, and making it a dairy free vegetarian salad that is also gluten free.
One serving has about 200 calories, the same as many restaurant house salads before adding salad dressing.
Avocado and Tomato Salad can be prepared and refrigerated several hours before serving if you tightly cover the sliced avocado with plastic wrap to prevent discoloration. The discoloration isn’t harmful just cosmetic. You can also dip sliced avocado in lemon or lime juice to slow the discoloration.
