Heirloom Tomato, Avocado, Basil Stacks with Balsamic Drizzle Recipe
Serves: 3 Servings
  • Salad Stack:
  • 4 large organic heirloom tomatoes
  • 3 small avocados
  • 24 fresh basil leaves
  • Balsamic Drizzle:
  • ⅔ cup balsamic vinegar
  • ¼ cup white cooking wine
  • 1 tsp honey
  • Optional: pepper to taste
  1. Salad Stack : Cut the tomatoes into roughly ½-inch thick slices. Cut the avocados into quarters, then cut each quarter into three slices. Cut the basil leaves into thin slices.
  2. Place one tomato slice on your plate or bowl and take three slices of avocado to stack on top. Cut a fourth slice of avocado in half and place it in the middle of the other three slices. Sprinkle a few slices of basil leaves on top of the avocado.
  3. Repeat the process again.
  4. Place another tomato slice on top, then add more basil on top of that as garnish. Done!
  5. Balsamic Drizzle: Bring all ingredients to a boil in a small saucepan, using a whisk to mix periodically.
  6. As soon as the sauce starts to thicken, take it off the heat and set it aside. Allow the mixture to cool while you build the stacks with the tomatoes, avocado, and basil. Drizzle over the stacks.
