I have eaten this salad for years. I LOVE IT! I never had a name for it, I just made it and ate it. So when I ended up with 50 organic avocados at the cafe just waiting to be transformed into a delicious meal instead of becoming the usual guacamole, I put this dish on the daily special menu. It was very popular and worked for all diets: vegetarians, vegans, gluten free, and even the raw food customers.
Back to not having a recipe name… What the heck was I going to call it? Avocado Tomato Salad, no that sounds too blah. I thought, it needs to be something catchy. Its a REALLY good healthy salad but people have to order it off a menu in words, not picture… If only they could just taste it.
So I came up with the PHAT Salad.
So what exactly IS the PHAT Salad –

This salad will NOT make you fat. It actually does the opposite.. It is such a healthy, quick, easy and did I mention, delicious salad. Now that I think about it, Maybe I should rename it The Skinny PHAT Salad.

We served it on top of a bed of organic baby greens in the cafe but honestly, I like to just eat it as is
