Prep Time: 55 minutes


  • 1 lb of Red Tomatoes
  • 1 bag of Brooks Cherries, save two cherries to garnish
  • 2 Persian Cucumbers, save a few cucumber slivers to garnish
  • 1 Avocado
  • 1 Bunch of Apple Mint. roughly chopped
  • 1 Tbsp White Balsamic or Sherry Vinegar

  • 1 ½ tsp of kosher salt

Heat 1 teaspoon of olive oil in a medium nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add tomatoes and cook for 3 to 4 minutes or until they begin to blister. Remove from heat and let stand 5 minutes.

Pulse tomatoes in a blender until mostly smooth and transfer to a large bowl. Pulse one of the cucumbers, jalapeño, garlic, and cherries in a blender until finely chopped.

While the cucumber is draining, peel the avocado and chop into ½ inch pieces. In a large salad bowl, add avocado and coat with lime juice and roughly chopped apple mint. Add the cucumbers and salt and pepper to taste.
