  1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees F. Line rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Core and cut tomatoes in quarters lengthwise; squeeze out seeds. Place, cut side up, on baking sheet.
  3. In small bowl, combine 1 tablespoon of the olive oil, the garlic, thyme, 1/8 teaspoon each salt and pepper; sprinkle over tomatoes. Roast, turning occasionally, until very soft and shriveled, about 2 and a half hours; set aside.
  4. Meanwhile, cut asparagus into thirds crosswise. Cook asparagus in 1 inch of lightly salted water until bright green and firm, 3 to 5 minutes; rinse with cold water; drain well. In small bowl, toss asparagus with 2 tablespoons of the olive oil and the scallions; set aside.
  5. To prepare dressing: In small bowl, stir remaining 4 tablespoons olive oil, the vinegar, remaining 1/8 teaspoon each salt and pepper; set aside. To serve: With a large spoon, scoop Avocado from shells; cut each half into 8 slices lengthwise. On each of 8 salad plates, place asparagus and tomatoes in rows; top with Avocado slices. Stir dressing; drizzle over salads.

What a refreshing and wonderful salad! Loved it. Fresh and delicious, Thank you!

Very good- left out the thyme and subbed white balsamic for the sherry vinegar. Nice flavors! Love a perfectly ripe avocado!

Delicious salad. I wanted the tomatoes to have a firmer texture to offset the avocado so didn't cook as long. I used 4 tablespoons of olive oil, and substituted thinly sliced shallots for the ...

Big hit at my house! I followed the recipe closely, except that 2-1/2 hours was too long to roast the tomatoes. I took them out after 2 hours and they were way more done than the picture. How...

I didn't make it exactly. I actually make it different every time. I usually use some sort of mix of cherry tomato, a whole avocado, mushrooms and asparagus. I either roast or microwave the ...
