Insalata Tricolore

This is such a lovely, vibrantly coloured salad, and can be prepared in minutes. To enjoy it at its best, use the most flavoursome tomatoes you can get your hands on and also use a perfectly ripe avocado. I went all out with this one and used buffalo mozarella, but any good mozzarella in its natural water will do.

(serves 4 as a side salad):
2 ripe vine tomatoes
1 ripe avocado
250g buffalo mozzarella
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp lemon juice
6 basil leaves, torn
salt and pepper

Slice the tomatoes, avocado and mozarella and arrange on a plate. Season with salt and pepper then drizzle the olive oil and lemon juice evenly across the salad. Sprinkle with torn shreds of basil and serve.
