using the food processor make the avocado cream: cream the avocado with the yogurt and mayonnaise and add salt and pepper to taste as well as the hot sauce and the remaining lemon juice
start setting the tomatoes in a long serving dish. First layer the slices of tomatoes, cover with the creamy mozzarella, spoon the avocado cream and drizzle the balsamic reduction. Add another layer and repeat. At the end top it with the chopped mint
* My inspiration for this recipe was a recipe from a restaurant in Mission Viejo called "Wine Works", next to " Dublin" and they use Burrata (a creamier mozzarella which is mixed with cream), you can substitute for more creamy runny texture
