Chopped Tomato & Avocado Salad
peaches / walnuts / eggs

Active: 25 minTotal: 25 min

To make this meal paleo friendly, we deconstruct a classic caprese sandwich and make it into a vibrant and full salad with peaches, walnuts, eggs, and avocado. No one will miss the meat tonight, we promise!
Smarts: Older eggs are easier to peel so buy two cartons. One for serving within the week and one for hardboiling 10 days after purchase.

yummy sandwich, and easy to make. I didn't have avocados that were ripe, so I added a little black forest ham, which turned out lovely. Same for the salad- didn't have peaches, but it was still delicious. Will make again for lunch!

Yum! I roasted cherry tomatoes with thyme, sea salt & garlic. I used arugula and basil and tossed it in a little balsamic before placing it on the sandwich. I toasted the sandwich (before adding basil and arugula mix) in the broiler and it was fabulous.

Don't need quite as much peaches, tomatoes as advetised. Next time lighter on the maple syrup. But overall superb salad.
