  1. I could eat this for every meal! pinned

    And loved seeing your IG pics of Austin but you are so right, there’s no place like home πŸ™‚

  2. I am guilty of over-complicating salads. I love the simplicity of this one! And the freshness from the cucumber and the dill! Great summer salad for my lunch box!

  3. You Austin pics on IG looked so fun! But it is definitely always nice to be home – especially when you get to eat this salad! Love all the flavours here, perfect for summer! Pinned!

  4. 5 minutes and only 5 ingredients?!?

    There goes my daily excuse of heading off to McDonalds for a salad today. Sigh!

    Easy peasy please!!

  5. I have tons of fresh dill from my CSA box, so this salad is perfect for me right now! πŸ™‚

  6. I love fresh and bright Summer salads like this — especially when they include cheese πŸ™‚

  7. I totally agree with you, there’s no place like home… I saw some of your Austin pictures on IG. Looked like you had fun.
    Love this salad. So summery and refreshing πŸ˜‰

  8. There’s no place like home ;). This salad looks perfect, simple, and refreshing!

  9. 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 πŸ™‚ )

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

  11. This looks amazing! I love dill and feta! I totally agree about traveling, the only time I’ve traveled and not been ready to come home to eat is when we go to Kauai.. The food is always so fresh.

  12. This looks so simple and fresh and perfect for summer! Can’t wait to try it.

  13. 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!

  14. 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.

  15. 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. ; )

  16. I just want to say thank you for this combination! I plant cucumbers in my garden and will be looking for easy recipes! This looks perfect for a side!

  17. 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.

  18. Combining Cucumber and Avocado is my FAVORITE. So healthy AND refreshing!!! Perfect for these humid summer months. Thanks for another great recipe πŸ™‚

  19. You guys must love avocados as much as I do. I found my way to your site via avocado ice cream then found this delicious and easy recipe. The cool crunch of cucumber with the creaminess of avocado and the salty goodness of feta makes a winning combination. Thanks!

  20. Made this with goat cheese instead of feta (didn’t have any feta in the fridge) and it was very delicious, too!

  21. Thank you for creating and posting this salad! Just when I get frustrated with eliminating white carbs, I find healthy gems like this and it rejuvenates me πŸ™‚ Absolutely delicious and deliciously simple.

  22. this fresh salad is great for warm nights here in AZ! I am pregnant and have been craving spice, so I put a little siracha on my second helping which was delightful!

  23. So yes! Sooooo YES! I tried this tonight – a bit modified – but sooooo, sooooo, soooooo good! Wow! I am a recent avocado person (had it the very first time in 2012 in California and now again this past winter at age 65 – very soon to be 66!) thanks to my two sons and one daughter-in-law. And am experimenting with it. I find the taste of avocado very rich, have had some really BAD avocados I have purchased and so have been approaching the whole avocado thing with a great deal of caution! Today I picked up two avocados (organic) at a store where I do not always shop, (because the one I do frequent only has avocados in bags of 6-8, way to much for me). I picked up two avocados with the intention of making this but I only wanted to use one in the recipe! I had mini cucumbers and used two of them. Added 3 spring onions and 1/4 cup crumbled feta. I used the left over of a mix of some lemon, olive oil and crushed garlic that I had made for an eggplant recipe yesterday. I did not add any salt, or pepper and I also did not use the dill (I forgot the recipe here USED dill and did not have any) and it is absolutely scrumptious! I will make it again as per the recipe once my brother returns home from overseas or if we have friends over who like to try new things in future. Until then I will go with what I did today because it is absolutely delectable! I just HAD to share as I am so happy that it all worked so well right down to a really gorgeous green coloured perfect avocado! Thanks for this fab recipe! I am going to share it! Oh and yep, it is pinned! πŸ™‚
