Heirloom Tomato Avocado Caprese Salad

The key to this salad is having perfectly ripe produce. You want the heirloom tomatoes and basil at their peak of flavor, and the avocado perfectly ripe and creamy. Slice the avocados horizontally to make perfect rounds and toss them in a little lemon juice to prevent browning. Dress the salad simply with the best quality extra virgin olive oil, coarse sea salt, and freshly cracked pepper. You can also drizzle with a nice aged balsamic vinegar if you like.
