    Serves: 4


    • 1 pack Waitrose Pome dei Moro tomatoes, washed and stalks removed
    • 2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
    • 4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
    • ½ x 175ml bottle Waitrose Organic Balsamic and Oregano Fresh Dressing
    • 2 tbsp capers, drained and roughly chopped
    • 150g pack Garofalo Buffalo Mozzarella, drained and roughly torn
    • 20g pack fresh flat-leaf parsley, roughly chopped
    • 2 ripe but firm large Hass avocados


    1. Preheat the grill to high. Place the tomatoes in a single layer on a baking tray. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper, sprinkle the garlic over and drizzle with the olive oil.

    4. Peel, stone and quarter the avocados. Take four serving plates and place two avocado quarters, slightly overlapping, on each.
    5. Spoon a little of the tomato mixture over the avocado and serve immediately with some warmed Waitrose Mediterranean Olive Bread to mop up the juices.
