This simple dish is all about getting back to basics, and relying on the flavors of fresh, natural plant food. Avocado, tomato and basil are an amazing combination from Mother Nature, that is so delectable.
(makes 1 serving)
- 1 avocado
- 1 large tomato or 2 small plum tomatoes
- Handful of basil leaves
- ½ Tbs of olive oil optional
- Black pepper to taste
- Celtic sea salt to taste (optional)
- Cut the tomato into thin slices, and arrange over a plate.
- Cut the avocado in half lengthwise using a large, sharp knife, and twist the halves to separate them. Lift out the pit with the knife and spoon out each half from the peel.
- Carefully slice the avocado into strips.
- Place avocado slices on top of the tomato, and sprinkle the basil leaves over the top.
- Add the olive oil and seasonings to taste. If you feel you don’t need the olive oil or salt, leave them out! I often do. The perfect bite would include avocado, basil and tomato all together.

I’m turning 39 this year & have made a conscious decision since I was young that I will age gracefully & drug-free until my golden years. I’ve been on GGS on and off for the past year but recently decided to really commit to daily intakes 2 months ago & now very pleased with the increased energy. Now I decided to try another dish from the book & this is the first since I saw the pic on Pinterest. I honestly didn’t think I’d like it because I’m so used to adding dressing to my salads, but OH MY GOD! I can’t believe how something so basic can taste so fresh, flavorful & filling at the same time, I even left the olive oil out. I used romaine lettuce since I didn’t have basil on hand & it tasted great, so I have no doubt the basil would have the same effect. Can’t wait to try more recipes. BDS is a God-send – thank you for bringing it to us, Kimberly.
