Heirloom Tomato and Avocado Stack

Serving Size:Serves 4


  • Dressing:
  • 1/3 cup buttermilk
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 Tablespoons sour cream
  • 1 Tablespoon mayonnaise
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated lime rind
  • 1/4 teaspoon minced fresh garlic
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cumin
  • dash of ground red pepper
  • Salad:
  • 4 medium (about 2 pounds) Yoder’s WI Amish Family Farms Heirloom Tomatoes
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup very thinly vertically sliced red onion
  • 1 cup (about 1 small) diced, peeled avocado
  • coarsely ground black pepper (optional)



This beautiful salad shows off the colors of fresh summer vegetables. Try varying the dressing by using basil and lemon rind.


1. To prepare dressing, combine first 9 ingredients in a small food processor or blender; process 30 seconds or until pureed, scraping sides of bowl occasionally. Cover and chill.

2. To prepare salad, slice each tomato crosswise into 4 equal slices (about ½ inch thick). Place 1 tomato slice on each of 4 salad plates; sprinkle slice evenly with ¼ teaspoon salt. Top each serving with a few onion pieces and about 1 tablespoon avocado. Repeat layers 3 times, ending with avocado. Drizzle 2 tablespoons dressing over each serving; sprinkle with black pepper, if desired.
