This is another one of those recipes in which the name says all good things to me. I made this as a side dish for a pasta meal but it would also be great on toasted baguette as an appetizer.

Ingredients:

  • 1 container cherry tomatoes, cut in half
  • 1 carton fresh mozzarella cheese pearls, drained
  • 1 avocado, peeled and diced
  • 1/3 cup basil, julienned
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • salt and pepper
