Tomato Salad with Arugula, Mozzarella, Avocado, & Nuts

Even here over at the Sugar Spectrum we enjoy a salad every once and awhile, this one was very filling and was the main course a few nights ago. My husband didn’t even complain on lack of meat (that’s what she said) – ok I am cracking myself up here…

INGREDIENTS (makes 3 salads)

3 Large tomatoes, medium slices
1 Red Onion, sliced thin
Fresh Mozzarella, sliced
1 Avocado, pitted & chopped lightly
Olive Oil, for drizzling
Balsamic Vinaigrette
2 tbs Mixed & Chopped nuts
Salt & Pepper


Soak your thinly sliced onion in a bowl of water for 20 minutes. Lightly coat your Arugula with the Balsamic.

Now we simply arrange. Sorry I am not a wordy poster….as you can tell.

Tomatoes, Olive Oil, Salt & Pepper


Mozzarella, Nuts, Avocado chunks, little more Olive Oil, Salt & Pepper

Fork, mouth, belly (preferably in that order)

Gorgeous! Does soaking the onion help it to be a little less pungent?
