A delicious and quick healthy recipe that’s big on flavour and colour, these Avocado, Mozzarella, Tomato and Red Onion Flatbreads are a fantastic lunch idea.
The filling takes about 10 minutes to prepare using a mixture of fresh and store cupboard ingredients. The dressing is a simple jam-jar mix-up of balsamic vinegar, lemon juice, olive oil and some soft dark brown sugar, resulting in that addictive sweet/salty hit that I can’t get enough of.
Instead of using raw red onion, which I find a bit harsh in salads, I’ve used Baxters pickled red onion from their new Deli Toppers range.
It’s such a convenient way to get a hit of red onion flavour without having to fanny about peeling and slicing onions. I reckon they’d also work a treat in sausage sandwiches, goats cheese tarts or even to liven up a humble cheese omelette.
For these Flatbreads I chopped them up and tossed them in with the fresh avocado, cherry plum tomatoes and mozzarella pearls with some torn basil leaves. As getting well into the autumn now, I think this filling would also work nicely over a baked sweet potato when you get in from work.
