This recipe came from Eva Longoria's new cookbook, Eva's Kitchen cooking with love for family and friends. I found this easy appetizer to be a wonderful twist on your tradition caprese salad. The avocado was a terrific accompaniment to the already beautiful marriage of tomato and fresh mozzarella. The creamy, buttery flavor of the avocado took this dish to the next level. Would be a perfectly light appetizer for any up coming spring gathering you have. I also seasoned the app with salt and pepper. Lovely!
2 red tomatoes, flavorful heirlooms if possible, cored and sliced
1 pound fresh mozzarella, sliced
3 avocados, pitted, peeled, and sliced
good quality balsamic vinegar to taste
On a large serving platter, arrange the tomatoes, mozzarella, and avocados in an overlapping and repeating pattern. Drizzle with vinegar and serve.
