Yesterday I wanted to do something a little bit different. I had a couple of very fresh and ripe tomatoes. I didn’t want to just slice them up. So I thought I’d make a tomato salad…here is the story…

“Let’s see…I want to have that avocado for lunch, anyways–so let’s use that, too…and a piece of that big sweet onion…how about this half a lemon that is lying here–lemon juice is very good on avocado and on tomato…and a handful of shredded coconut…and a little bit of honey…now it is a bit dry–how about some of that apple cider vinegar…Oh! I almost forgot the salt and pepper…hmmmm..I don’t think I should do anything else to this…lest I mess it up……..” (All this with a taste between every ingredient….)

It ended up pretty good. If I would have had some olive oil, I would have used just a drizzle, too, for making the flavor richer.

But all that isn’t very helpful if you want to enjoy some, too–so here is the receipe…

2 fresh tomatoes
1 avocado
half a sweet onion (or one whole small one)
juice of a half lemon
3/4 cup of shredded coconut (unsweetened)
1/4 cup of honey
1/2 cup of apple cider vinegar
salt and pepper to taste

Cut tomatoes and avocado in pieces, dice sweet onion, mix all ingredients together, and enjoy!!!!
