  • Salt and fresh black pepper
  • 1/2 pound assorted Heirloom Tomatoes
  • 2 Creole Tomatoes
  • 1 large Vidalia onion, peeled
  • 2 Haas avocados
  • 6 1-ounce slices of Fresh Mozzarella cheese
  • 1 dozen baguette croutons, about 1-inch thick
Remoulade Sauce:
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice

Directions

In a small mixing bowl, whisk the olive oil, vinegar, garlic, and herbs until incorporated. Season the vinaigrette with salt and pepper. With a serrated knife, quarter the Heirloom tomatoes. Slice the Creole tomato into 1/2-inch slices. Cut the Vidalia onion into thin slices or rings. Peel and remove the pit of the avocados. Slice the avocados into 1-inch slices. Season all the vegetables (both sides) with salt and fresh black pepper. Arrange all the vegetables on a large platter along with the cheese. Drizzle the dressing over the entire platter. Serve the salad with the croutons.
