2 x large ripe avocados

10 x cherry tomatoes

3 x plum tomatoes

1 tsp wholegrain mustard

1 tsp Dijon mustard

For the dressing 

  • Put the 3 teaspoons of mustards & balsamic vinegar into a bowl.
  • Add some Maldon salt  & freshly ground black pepper.
  • Add your Extra virgin Olive oil and mix with a spoon. 


  • Cut your tomatoes into cubes and half the cherry tomatoes in the bowl.
  • Cut your avocado in half, take out the stone & cut into quarters, peel back the skin. (If it is ripe, it will easily peel away)
  • Cut your avocado into chunks and add with the tomatoes.
  • Mix well with your dressing and serve into a salad bowl.
  • Decorate with baby gem lettuce and a spring of basil.

If your avocados are unripe, leave out of the fridge for a day or 2 to ripen.

Use the best balsamic and extra virgin olive oil you can afford.

Try a few different kinds of balsamic vinegar.
