Extra Chunky, Super Fast, Amazingly Delicious Tomato Avocado Salad for Grow Your Own #18

This was a quick and delicious lunch. I knew I was hungry and I knew I didn't have the patience for something too involved. But I also knew that I wanted something I made myself, at home, so I knew what went into it and it would be healthy. The tomatoes in this salad (about a third of which are in this photo) represent almost our entire harvest. We are done wondering what went wrong. We're thinking of next year and watching our fall garden sprout.

Chop some tomatoes. Chop an avacado. Chop a jalapeno. Chop some cilantro. Squeeze half a lime over it all. Sprinkle with salt. Toss. Eat. Sigh satisfyingly.

Your salad looks yummy, just my style! It's so hard when the garden doesn't produce and we're left shaking our heads trying to figure out why. Better luck to you with your fall garden!
