Avocado Tomato Salad Ingredients
The easy salad can be made with just five basic ingredients: avocado, tomato, peppers, onions, and lime juice.
It’s extremely versatile, so feel free to change the recipe to fit the ingredients you have on hand. You can also easily leave out the cilantro if desired.
Try substituting the bell pepper for diced mango or strawberry, adding lettuce or greens, or tossing in half a cup of corn, cucumber, or roasted sweet potato (here’s how to cook sweet potatoes) or Japanese sweet potato. Or add chopped jalapeños and a dash of chili powder for a spicy Mexican avocado salad.

Ways To Serve The Salad

Wrapped up in taco shells or tortillas to make vegan tacos or burritos
As a heart healthy sandwich spread in place of tuna or egg salad or avocado toast.

You can also turn it into a main meal by adding a protein source – traditional summer avocado salad recipes sometimes call for chicken, shrimp, or salmon, but I keep mine vegan by adding beans or chickpeas instead.
