Tomato, Cucumber, and Avocado Salad-this fresh, light, and simple summer salad goes great with any meal.
My summer staples include watermelon, sweet corn, peaches, ice cream, and this simple Tomato, Cucumber, Avocado Salad. I can’t live without these foods during the hot summer months. I eat them just about every day. What are your summer staples?
I love this Tomato, Cucumber, and Avocado Salad because it EASY to make, like 15 minutes easy. Everyone has time to make this salad. No excuses!
This is a great salad for using up the garden goodies. If you don’t have a garden, ask your neighbors to share or visit a local farmers market.
I like to use a few different colors of tomatoes because it makes the salad extra pretty, but you can use any kind of tomatoes. Tomatoes are SO good right now, you can’t go wrong!
Put the chopped tomatoes, cucumber, avocado, red onion, and fresh basil in a bowl. Drizzle with a little bit of olive oil and white balsamic vinegar. Season with salt and pepper and serve! I told you it was easy.
And look how beautiful it is. This simple summer salad is a showstopper! Everyone will ooh and aah over it and you can make it with your eyes closed. Well, maybe open your eyes while you are handling the knife, I don’t want anyone to get hurt:)
