Avocado, onion & tomato salad

Avocado, red onion & tomato salad

Three of my favourite salad veggies – avocado, onion & tomato!  This is quickest and simplest salad to throw together and goes very well with all my rice dishes; crisp, cold and colourful.  You can add red peppers, cucumber or celery to it of course but this version is simple and for me just right with one-pot rice dishes specially if you serve yogurt and cucumber (Mas-o-khiar in Persian or Tzatzki in Greek).  We hardly ever eat rice without some yogurt, usually mixed with cucumber, spinach or grated beetroot – rounds up the rice dish beautifully 

Ingredients

1 ripe avocado, cut into small pieces
About 8 cherry tomatoes, halved
1 medium red onion, sliced thinly
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons lemon juice
Sea salt to taste

Method

Mix all the ingredients, chill if you have the time and serve!
