Tomato-Mozzarella Avocado Boats

This may become your favorite summer appetizer.  Ready in a couple of minutes, it is a delicious and gorgeous dish bursting with color and flavor and suitable for  low carb diets. 

For each serving, you will need half an avocado, 5 juicy cherry tomatoes and 5 to 7 baby mozzarella balls.  To make it, cut a  ripe avocado in half, remove the pit, and squeeze a bit of lemon juice on the cut surface then give it a  grind of sea salt. Halve the cherry tomatoes.  Toss the mozzarella balls in a splash of olive oil, a bit of sea salt and a pinch of each, hot pepper flakes and dried oregano.  In each avocado half, heap 3-4 mozzarella balls and  a few tomato halves. Drizzle the leftover marinade from the mozzarella balls over each avocado half.   Finish with some finely chopped basil and/or parsley and serve with the rest of the tomatoes and mozzarella balls alongside.  Pretty enough for company or for an everyday lunch, it is summer in every bite!
