Avocado and Tomato Salad

To go with my crab rolls, I decided I should use up those avocados I bought before they went bad.  I came across this recipe for a caprese salad with avocados in there, and thought, "how could you go wrong?"  My philosophy is that everything is better with cheese... and avocados.  Though the original recipe I found was yummy, I tweaked it a little, all of the fats from the avocados and cheese needed some vinegar to cut through it.
I will say that this does not store well, so if there's only two of you, cut the recipe in half, or invite some people over and have a party!
