Grilled avocado tomato and mozzarella salad

Description: Description: Classic with a twist Grilled Avocado, Tomato and Mozzarella Salad

Grilled avocado sounds faintly ridiculous until you try it – lightly smoky and very addictive. The fruit should be ripe, but not overly soft, or the flesh will disintegrate

Hands-on time 20min, plus standing. Cooking time about 10min. Serves 4   

·         1kg (2lb 2oz) mixed tomatoes – look out for heirloom varieties

·         2 avocados

·         1tbsp extra virgin olive oil, plus extra to drizzle

·         2 x 125g (4oz) balls buffalo mozzarella, drained

·         Large handful of Greek Basil or punnet of cress

·         Balsamic vinegar, to drizzle 

1.    Star by preparing the tomatoes. To add interest to your salad, chop all your tomatoes differently – halve or quarter smaller ones, slice or roughly chop large ones. Put all the tomatoes into a colander, sprinkle over 1/2 tsp salt, toss together and leave in the sink for 20min – this will help any excess, flavorless moisture drain out of the tomatoes.

2.    Meanwhile halve, peel and stone avocados. Slice the flesh into 1cm (½in) thick slices. Preheat a griddle pan over a high heat. Brush avocado slices with the oil and arrange neatly on the griddle. Leave in place until charred black lines appear on the underside of the slices, then flip and repeat on the other side.

3.    To serve; tip tomatoes on to a large flat platter. Rip mozzarella into bite-sized pieces and dot among the tomatoes. Snip over cress or sprinkle over basil. Season with freshly ground black pepper and drizzle over some balsamic vinegar and extra virgin olive oil. Serve with crusty bread.
