Avocado tomato salad

Great avocado tomato salad with lettuce, sun dried tomatoes, bacon, parmesan cheese and avocado. Visit thetortillachannel.com for this recipe #avocado #tortillasalad #salad #summersalad #avocadotomatosalad.

In the summer is always a good idea to eat light because it is warm and you do not want to go to
bed with a full stomach. So one of the best things you can do is make a salad. Why are salads so great?

Simple:

  • You can easily toss them together
  • Use the ingredients you prefer
  • Add a light dressing but not required

The idea that you need a dressing is big misconceptions because what a salad really needs is a bite
and there are a lot of ingredients that can give you just that. Think about:

  • Olives
  • Sun dried tomatoes (one of my favorite bite ingredients)
  • Avocado
  • Bacon
  • Cheese

This avocado tomato bacon salad is a good example of a great summer recipe which can customize with your favorite ingredients.

Tinto de Verano

Taste of Summer Tinto de Verano portrait
No summer night without a good drink and this one is the best for a warm summer evening. A simple version of the Spanish sangria this drink is one of the easiest to make.

Tinto de Verano means red Summer and refers to the red wine in this recipe and how refreshing it is to drink during a long hot summer. If you do not like red wine try it with a white wine and turn your tinto into a blanco.
