Notes

*If you can, I would strongly suggest getting VINE-RIPENED tomatoes...it makes all the difference in flavour, I promise!
*If making salad in advance, I would suggest adding the avocado just before serving to prevent browning.
*Number of servings will vary depending on how hungry you are. Recipe can easily be increased!
