Avocado Caprese Salad

Avocado Caprese Salad - recipe - Wanderlust in the City

I love cheese more than most people, but recently Greg and I went through a period where we didn’t eat meat or cheese. And so I was left cutting cheese out of my favorite dishes and finding alternatives that gave me the creamy comfort I was craving without any of the dairy.

Enter this Avocado Caprese Salad. It’s vegan, as well as paleo and gluten free. And for those of you without dietary restrictions, it’s also delicious!

If you eat it with your eyes closed, the avocado almost tastes and feels like mozzarella. And if you eat it with your eyes open, the bright, beautiful colors are sure to add some joy to a cheerless, cloudy day… as much as something without cheese can, of course!

To make my Avocado Caprese Salad, you’ll need:

4 tomatos

3 avocados

1 bunch fresh basil

1 lemon

Olive Oil

Salt

Pepper
