Cucumber, Tomato and Avocado Salad


1 English cucumber
4 Roma tomatoes
3 Ripe Avocados
1/2 Red Onion
1/4 Cilantro
Juice of 1 lemon
Salt & Pepper to taste
2 tbsp. Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Gather all the ingredients (please note: this is the most difficult step)
  Slice cucumbers and place in a medium bowl

and then slice and add the tomatoes

Slice and dice the avocados and add to the bowl

Slice and dice the red onions and add to bowl

Slice and chop the cilantro and add to bowl

Cut lemon in half and juice them over the vegetables

Sprinkle on some salt to your liking

Sprinkle on some pepper as well

Finally, drizzle on the olive oil

Gently stir until thoroughly combined

Set aside and in the meantime, clean up :)

I almost didn't add all three avocados, just thought it was too many, I would have perhaps used two but then I just decided to follow the recipe to the "T".

I found this recipe by Tasty as the video flooded my Facebook newsfeed the other day.  Seems like everyone was posting it.  I enjoy watching those videos, you know, the ones that speed through a recipe, making it look so simple.  Well, this one can't be more simpler.  You just slice, dice, chop and mix.   It was a treat and very good and very well satisfying.  Hubby (my meat and potatoes man) won't try it, I think he's afraid he might like it! :)

Here's the video, check it out:
I hope you enjoyed the video but I really hope you try the salad.

Until next time,


  1. So pretty Bev..we are an avocado a day family;)

    1. I love avocados too but hubby doesn't :(. What is your favorite way of using them?
