Ingredients

  • 4 beefsteak heirloom tomatoes. They should be firm but ripe
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 2 ripe avocados, cut into small cubes
  • 1 small red onion, thinly sliced
  • ½ cup pitted castelvetrano olives, (you can use olives of your choice). I used castelvetrano olives because they have a sweeter flavour
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh parsley
  • Handful of fresh basil leaves, chopped
  • ½ cup good quality crumbled feta cheese
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • ½ tsp. ground cumin
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 8 butter lettuce leaves
  • Instructions

  • With a small sharp knife cut out the middle of a tomato and then carefully scoop out the flesh. Slice the scooped out tomato into small pieces and place in a bowl. Add remaining ingredients, except the tomato and lettuce and stir to combine. Season with salt and pepper
  • Fill each tomato with the salad and place on a plate with two lettuce leaves. Enjoy
