Avocado & Tomato Salad

This Avocado & Tomato salad is an easy, bright summer salad. It's crunchy, fresh and makes the perfect side salad. I love the crunchy cucumber paired with the creamy avocado, topped with a tangy dressing. 
Tomato's are rich in vitamin A and C. These vitamins along with beta carotene work as anti-oxidants to neutralise harmful free radicals in our blood stream. Free radicals can lead to cell damage. The redder the tomato is, the more beta carotene it contains. The high levels of vitamin A help keep our hair shiny and strong and improve skin health.
