When you start with quality ingredients, it’s shocking how little is necessary to make something incredible. This heirloom tomato, for example:

This requires salt and a mouth in which to stuff it. That is all.

And yes, my favorite bamboo cutting block has huge gouges in it. I only use it for vegetables and bread. Big whoop, wanna fight about it?

But, there is another way. Yet again, it’s a triumph of simplicity. Heirloom tomato and avocado salad. It looks like this:

This is 2 small avocados and 1 small heirloom tomato tossed with the juice of half a lime, salt, pepper and a few sprigs of cilantro. It required 5 minutes of real, actual effort, then 30 minutes of hanging out. No magic, just stir, plate and…well, don’t even bother with dirtying another plate for you will eat the entire thing.

Meddling is for Scooby-Doo, not prime produce.
