Tomato, Onion and Avocado #Saladbar


This months Salad Bar theme is all about avocados. I love the creaminess of them and that green color makes any salad look so colorful and inviting. I also love to slice them and put them in sandwiches.

Lets just say you are planning on bringing this at a relative or friends house. My advice is to slice the onions ahead of time. Plan on cutting and assembling everything else when you get there. The reasons why is the avocado once cut, will need some type of acid to keep it from turning brown and you will destroy the flavor of tomatoes and make them a mealy texture if you refrigerate them.

If you’re interested in joining us next month, check out The Salad Bar Facebook page. Thanks to Wendy, The Weekend Gourmet, for hosting us again this month.

    Great tip on how to preserve the avocados. I love assembling salads on site, it’s a fun way to connect with your hostess.

    I will have to replace the avocados with cucumbers! 🙂 (I have half a five gallon bucket full to do something with today.)
