This is a very simple salad that is the perfect change of pace. It requires fresh ingredients but is filling, tasty and really good for you! You get a wonderful mix of textures and the flavors were meant to be together!

Directions

  1. Dice avocados into 1/4 to 1/2 inch pieces and place in a bowl.
  2. Slice tomatoes and cucumber into 1/2 inch thick slices. Cut each slice in half and place into bowl with avocado.
  3. Dice green onion (green part and base) and cilantro.
  4. Toss all veggies and herbs with the juice of one lime (about 2-3 T).
  5. Add salt to taste. Start with about 1/4 teaspoon, mix taste and add more if necessary. Salt makes the flavors pop so don't skimp.
  6. Add a couple splashes of cayenne sauce if you want a little heat.
  7. The avocado will break up a little and blend with the lime juice to make a dressing for the veggies.
  8. Serve as a side or eat as a main dish. I like it with grilled shrimp.
  9. NOTES:
  10. Avocados can be ripened in a paper bag.
  11. Tomatoes can be left on the counter to try to get them good and red. NEVER put them in the fridge.
