This is a wonderful salad. Steeping the avocado in the lemon, olive oil, salt and pepper for an hour before serving is a real key to the flavor. We served this with small but flavorful tomatoes, so instead of the presentation recommended below, we just tossed everything together and served it. If I had big slices of heirloom tomatoes (which would be ideal) I would definitely serve it stacked as below. Enjoy!

  1. About 1 hour (but not more than 2) before serving the salad, cut the avocado in half, remove the pit, and cut the flesh into 1/2-inch pieces. In a small bowl, toss the avocado pieces
  2. with the 2 teaspoons of lemon juice, 1 tablespoon olive oil, and 1/4 teaspoon each of the salt and pepper. Set aside.
  3. Just before serving, cut the tomato into four thick slices, and sprinkle with the remaining 1/4 teaspoon each of salt and pepper.
  4. Combine the dressing ingredients in a bowl large enough to hold the salad greens. Add the greens and toss thoroughly.
  5. Divide the greens among four salad plates. Place a slice of tomato in the center of each plate of greens, and top with the avocado.
  6. Sprinkle with the cilantro, and serve immediately.

          I hope you enjoy it Tom. Pre-marinating the avocado is something I've never done before, and it really is a great trick!
