Tomato Avocado Salad (plant-based, gluten-free)

5 from 1 vote
This is a fresh, delicious lunch inspired by the cuisine of Central America.
You can play with how you arrange the sliced tomatoes, avocadoes, onions, and herbs, then drizzle them with lime, olive oil, salt and pepper.
Pair it with some toasted bread or a side of beans for a mid-day meal to power your afternoon.
For today's inspiration, I love this quote by American inventor Thomas Edison:
“I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work.”
May you find the way that does work for whatever you are puzzling on today.
