You can make this salad with your eyes closed, it is that easy. Well, maybe peek a little, I don’t want you to cut yourself while you are chopping the cucumber and avocado:) Stir together chopped cucumber, avocado, feta cheese, fresh lemon juice, and dill. Season with salt and pepper and dig in with a fork!

    Love the summery colours of this fresh salad!

  15. KG — June 20, 2014 @ 11:21 am

    Looks really light and refreshing! So easy, too.

    Do you think that adding a summer fruit would work w/ this at all? Maybe like strawberries? ( And actually I thought of strawberries based on the strawberry guacamole recipe that you recently posted :) )

  16. Naomi — June 20, 2014 @ 11:51 am

    I’d want bite after bite of this too!

  17. Julie @ Table for Two — June 20, 2014 @ 11:53 am

    Oooo I bet the feta on this is such a great salty bite to the creamy avocado and crisp cucumber!

    So funny, we had this exact salad last night – but only because these were the only salad-type ingredients I had in the fridge! I used parsley but am excited to try it with dill – yum!

    Love this version of Greek salad.

  29. Carol at Wild Goose Tea — June 22, 2014 @ 10:20 pm

    I am so into avocados right now. I generally have all of these ingredients on hand, but I never thought to isolate them into one quick and delish salad. Thank you for the idea.

  30. Danielle — June 23, 2014 @ 12:41 am

    Made this tonight with dinner…..except added sliced cherry tomatoes and instead of dill and feta I used fresh cilantro and cotija cheese as substitutes because that’s all I had on hand….it was soooooo good!! Just delicious. Loved by all. ; )

  31. I eat so many cucumbers in the summer, love this salad!

    This looks incredibly refreshing!

  37. Jacqui Odell — July 1, 2014 @ 11:14 am

    We have a lot of friends that garden and always bringing us their leftover cucumbers. Sometimes I run out of things to do with them, but since I really love avocados I think I will try this. Change things up.

  38. Ian — July 2, 2014 @ 5:57 am

    It’d be nice if you shared how you diced the ingredients..

  39. Cathy Cox — July 2, 2014 @ 10:35 pm

    Bad salad. It was a waste of money.
