Cucumber Salad With Tomato, Avocado


1 seedless cucumber, diced
1 cup halved cherry tomatoes
1 avocado, diced
1/2 red onion, chopped
2 tablespoons fresh basil, chopped
1/4 cup olive oil
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1/4 teaspoon salt and fresh cracked black pepper
1/4 teaspoon red chili pepper flakes, optional


1. To make the cucumber salad with tomato and avocado: Fill a Ziploc bag with diced cucumber, then slightly smash the cucumber with a rolling pin. This step is optional, but this will release some of the juice of the cucumber and make the sauce more delicious, so we highly recommend it!

2. In a shallow plate or salad bowl, assemble cucumber, avocado, tomato, basil, and red onion.

3. In a Mason jar, combine olive oil, balsamic, salt, and pepper. Close the lid and shake vigorously. Drizzle the dressing over the veggies.

4. Toss the cucumber salad to mix the ingredients with the dressing. Sprinkle with red chili pepper flakes and more pepper if you like. Serve the cucumber salad with tomato and avocado immediately, or chill in the refrigerator before serving.


This healthy cucumber salad is ideal for picnics or a quick lunch on the go!
