Kumato and Avocado Salad

Many of you have seen us posting photos of some odd looking fruit. Some wanted to know if it was an apple, and were we cheating on The 21 Day Sugar Detox? Some asked if it was grilled because of the dark color, and some just asked “what is that?” The other week we were cruising around the produce section in Whole Foods and came across these tomatoes that were deep red, labeled “Kumatos.” They are also known as a brown tomato. We decided to grab them because, well, they are so beautiful that we couldn’t pass up the opportunity for a photo.

Kumatos look and taste wonderful in salads, so we threw together a quick salad for the detox using these delicious little beauties.


  • 2 kumatos, chopped
  • 1 avocado, chopped
  • A handful of fresh cilantro, lightly chopped
  • A drizzle of olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste.
  1. In a medium size mixing bowl, lightly toss kumato, avocado, and cilantro.
  2. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  3. Lightly toss again to ensure all are equally seasoned.
  4. Serve.

      I'm pretty sure those are Black Krim tomatoes, an heirloom variety I love! They taste so much better than the crappy normal grocery store ones.

      Since when is having an apple cheating on the Whole30? I have purchased the Success Guide, and have triple-checked the website. Whole fruit is not a cheat, and if it is, please point out where it says that. I know fruit isn't particularly encouraged, but it isn't a cheat that I know of.

      JKDavido- we are not doing the Whole 30. We are doing The 21 Day Sugar Detox. That is a completely different program, where absolutely no sugar is allowed for 21 days, including whole fruit. We have mentioned that we are doing the sugar detox in every single post this year, including this one. It is also on our side bar that we are only doing sugar detox recipes right now.
