Serves 4

Ingredients:

  • 10 ounces cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 medium ripe avocado
  • 4 ounces fresh mozzarella cheese
  • 1 teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt

Instructions:

  • Add the cherry tomatoes, olive oil and garlic to a medium mixing bowl, stirring to combine. Let the mixture sit for about 10 minutes to let the tomatoes marinate.
