This delicious and super simple salad makes for a nice side dish for lunch, dinner or even when hosting a larger party (it’s easy to make a lot of it!). Avocado and tomato together are refreshing and delicious, and they make a great  base for a meal when you’re hungry! It takes no time to make, it makes your plate pretty, and it fills you with plentiful health benefits.
