Cucumber, Tomato, & Avocado Salad

Cucumber, tomato, & avocado salad

I regularly tell my daughters how their taste buds will change as they get older. They usually give me a skeptical look that reads, “Ah, there goes that mom of ours thinking she knows things and stuff.” Yep, that’s me. You know why? Because I do know stuff! Admittedly, when I was 13 and 15, you couldn’t pay me to eat this salad. Heck, even as a 23 or 25 year old. . .maybe even a 33 or 35 year old. After all, it was just a year or so ago that I discovered quite the fondness over guacamole and now, I routinely buy avocadoes for not only guacamole, but for breakfast as an accessory to the eggs or even (shh, don’t tell my girls) slicing it up and adding it to a sandwich. It’s possible I wouldn’t have believed myself had I the ability to go back in time to report to my younger self. But in the here and now, I’m happy to report this is a salad that my hubby and I are happy to eat all by ourselves while the girls are happy with plain old cucumber slices.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cucumber
  • 1 tomato, deseeded
  • 2 avocados
  • 1/2 of a red onion, sliced
  • 1 lemon
  • 2 tbsps. olive oil
  • 1/4 cilantro
  • S&P

Preparation:

Cut the cucumber lengthwise in half, with each half cut into another half and then dice. Deseed and dice the tomato and avocados; slice the onion. Toss the cucumber, tomato, avocados, and onion into the bowl. Season with S&P, add in the cilantro and gently toss. Squeeze in the juice of 1 lemon and olive oil, stir to combine. Eat immediately.
