Today we are going to make a delicious avocado salad with Tropea onion, tomatoes and dried tomatoes too. To add a savory and crisp touch, a sprinkling of dried tomatoes, cut into petals, is a boon, not to mention that makes the whole thing more nuanced and cut the fattiness of avocado with a sharp, aromatic flavor.
