Heirloom Tomato Fresh Mozzarella Cheese Avocado with Basil Salad


Heirloom tomatoes are better in general than other varieties and given a choice, I would choose an heirloom tomato time and again. Many people who otherwise don’t like tomatoes find that they absolutely love eating an heirloom tomato.

An heirloom tomato (also called heritage tomato in the UK) is an open-pollinated (non-hybrid) heirloom cultivar of the tomato. Their texture and vibrant flavor is amazing and has undoubtedly contributed to heirloom tomatoes becoming increasingly popular and more readily available in recent years.

This is a VERY simple, quick and healthy dish you can make for lunch or dinner that will not only pleasantly satisfy your hunger but keep your kitchen and house cool in the heat of the summer AND…. it’s ready in minutes! Enjoy!
