Sliced Garden Tomatoes with Avocado and Kale Walnut Pesto

 

Did you know that tomatoes and avocado are a superfood combo? Eating the two together is extra healthy, as lycopene, the antioxidant in tomatoes, is absorbed FOUR times as more when eaten with a healthy fat like avocado. Not to mention they taste delicious together (hello salsa and guac!). You can read more about healthy food combinations here
