Tomato Avocado Salad is sweet, tangy, and so easy to make for a refreshing, healthy salad that is sure to be the hit at any meal!

Specialty salads are meant to be side dishes, but we gobble them up like they’re the main course! Get avocados involved and we couldn’t be happier (and our bellies couldn’t be more full!) Tomato avocado salad is one of these summer side dishes that we can’t get enough of, and regularly consume as an entire meal. Join us, won’t you? 

  • Can tomato avocado salad be made vegan?

    Yes! This recipe is almost vegan already, only requiring that you substitute the honey with maple syrup to make it 100% vegan.

  • Cilantro Substitutions:

    We highly recommend you use freshly chopped cilantro in this recipe. The flavor juts can’t be beat! If you don’t have access to fresh cilantro, you can always substitute with dried cilantro, parsley, or even basil!

  • Storage instructions:

    You can store Tomato Avocado Salad in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days. However, the avocado will start to brown when exposed to air, and does not mean that they have gone bad.

I make a version of this all the time. I add olives (black, Kalamata or both) and feta cheese. It’s amazing like that. I have never added the honey, cilantro or vinegar but It sounds delicious. Thanks for sharing!

Love this recipe! One thing I do to help the avocados from turning brown is take cling wrap and put it directly on the salad and smooth it out so air can’t get to the avocado.

Perfect. Made this last night with the scrimp and pasta dish. Pasta was finished by four adults at dinner. Unusual. Picky eaters. Now, by lunch the next day, this tomato and avocado dish is gone. Simple. Quick. Very tasty. Perfect. Thank you!
