Quick Avocado and Tomato Salad

I bought some avocado on sale last weekend and wanted to find a new way to use it. Generally my go to dish would be a guacamole, but I've been doing it time and time again...I found this recipe online and decided to try it, I've adjusted the seasoning a bit to our taste but it was a great combination of flavors and textures. I also added chopped cilantro, because I like the combination. Overall it was very nice weekday side dish, although the balsamic makes the avocado look "muddy".

2 medium tomatoes, chopped
1 avocado, chopped
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/4 cup diced red onion
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

1. Combine all the ingredients in a small bowl and toss together.
2. Let stand for about 5-10 minutes before serving.
