As soon as strawberry season hits, I can’t help but add them to ALL. MY. MEALS. Anyone else?

If you love strawberries as much as I do, you’re in luck – I’ve got a bunch of strawberry recipes in the works. But first up – this insanely flavourful Strawberry, Tomato & Avocado Salad.

I think this would be a perfect salad option to make ahead and bring to a summer BBQ or picnic. There’s no lettuce in here, so it won’t go limp and soggy!

If making in advance, the only thing I would suggest is adding the avocado just before serving to prevent browning.

This salad is beyond quick and easy to make (15 minutes), and it’s bursting with flavour from all the fresh seasonal ingredients. I guarantee it’ll be a hit at your next get together!

Strawberry Nutrition Benefits

Not only are strawberries bursting with flavour, but they’re packed with nutrients, too!

Did you know that 1 cup of strawberries provides 140% of your daily vitamin C needs? It’s one of the best sources of vitamin C out there, playing a role in keeping our skin healthy and preventing cell damage (it’s an antioxidant).

Like other berries, strawberries are also a great source of good-for-the-gut dietary fibre; 1 cup provides 3 grams.

Strawberries also contain a small amount of:

  • potassium
  • vitamin B6
  • folate
  • phosphorus
  • magnesium

Tomato Nutrition Benefits

Like strawberries, tomatoes are also a rich source of vitamin C and other phytochemicals that act as antioxidants, like lycopene and beta-carotene.

In addition, tomatoes are a source of:

  • dietary fibre
  • potassium
  • folate
  • vitamin K

TIP: For the best flavour – I highly recommend purchasing vine-ripened tomatoes. It makes such a difference (promise).

Avocado Nutrition Benefits

Avocados are rich in monounsaturated fatty acids and are actually super high in dietary fibre (1 cup provides 40% of your daily fibre needs)!

This unique combination of monounsaturated fats and fibre makes them extremely heart-healthy, as both nutrients are linked to lower cholesterol and triglyceride levels.

Avocados are also a good source of many different micronutrients, including:

  • vitamin C
  • vitamin B6
  • magnesium
  • potassium
  • folate
  • vitamin K
  • vitamin E

The fact that they’re rich in fat will help your body absorb many of the nutrients in this salad, too!

As you can see, this Strawberry, Tomato & Avocado Salad is not only rich in flavour, but it’s jam-packed with nutritious ingredients to support your overall health. A win-win in my books 🙂
