Avocado, Tomato and Vidalia Onion Salad

Hot weather calls for cool summer salads and I needed to add another one to my repertoire.  Yesterday, on Good Morning America,  Emeril Lagasse prepared a quick avocado and tomato salad.  I just love avocados, they are one my favorite things to eat, so I had to give this recipe a go.  You basically slice onions, tomatoes, and vidalia onions and place them over a bed of lovely greens.  Add salt and pepper and then drizzle some olive oil and red wine vinegar and you are good to go.  I must confess we also had pizza for dinner, it was a busy day!! But we still got some veggies in so it is all good right?  Because this salad looks gorgeous on a platter, it would also make a nice dish to bring to a summer party.
What's your favorite salad?

Yum. I am for sure making this! We love every single ingredient here. I could eat avocados all the time. You are right, it's gorgeous too!

I love this summer salad a lot:


And this one I made up last year,
shredded cabbage, cashews, green onion, ginger mandarin dressing.
