Acapulco Salad

fontover_20167259354371.jpgI LOVE fresh tomatoes.  I don’t have a garden, but thanks to roadside stands and farmers markets I am getting my fill!

I got this idea from a reader that mentioned that she used avocados in her Caprese salad… that got me thinking, why not have a composed salad similar to Caprese, but with south of the border flair… and voila! this was born.

This dish is very easily made and is quite cool and refreshing.
