    No, it's not guacamole. Similar, but simpler and, I think, better. Very fresh tasting.

    Cube fresh tomatoes and avacado in bite size pieces. Combine, but do not mush. Add a sprinkle of kosher salt. Let sit a while in the fridge if you can wait, and it will be better.

    You can stop there, but I like to add cracked black pepper or maybe a squirt of fresh lime juice. My wife likes a little Italian dressing.

    P.S. Vidalia onions just hit town for this season. We chopped some of them tonight and added them to this salad. Very good!

    Vidalia onions are quite sweet, so they fit in well with the other ingredients.

    We have made the salad w/o the onions before, and it is very good either way.

    Forgot to add that I use a teaspoon of Dijon mustard in the dressing as well. The oil to vinegar ratio is two oil to one vinegar.
