In a bowl, combine the tomatoes, bell pepper, chili pepper, and onion. Toss gently. Add the oil, vinegar, salt, and black pepper and toss again. Let the mixture sit for 30 minutes so the flavors can mellow.
Halve the avocados and remove the pits. Rub the cut sides with lemon juice. Arrange 1 avocado half on each of 4 salad plates. Remove the stems from the lettuce, watercress, or parsley and divide the greens among the avocados. Spoon the salsa mixture into each one, sprinkle with more black pepper, and serve at once.
The secret source of humor is not joy but sorrow; there is no humor in Heaven.
