Cucumber Tomato Avocado Salad is one of my absolute favorites!
How to chop cucumber?
For this recipe I wanted nice bite sized squares.
- Peel the cucumber
- Slice lengthwise in half
- Slice each halt lengthwise into 3-4 strips
- Chop perpendicular to cuts to form cubes
How to cut the onions?
I went for strips of onion for this salad but feel free to chip into cubes!
- Peel onion and section off ¼- ½ of it
- Slice a small portion off the side to make a nice flat edge
- Slice thin pieces of onion off then roughly chop the onion into various sizes
How to cube avocado?
- Cut avocados in half and remove the pit either with a knife (carefully!) or a spoon
- Slice through the flesh of the avocado in horizontal and vertical lines to form cubes without slicing through the peel
- Use a spoon to scoop out the avocado
How to cut tomatoes?
- Use a serrated knife to slice the tomatoes into ~8 even slices
- Cut those slices into cubes
Do I have to use Roma tomatoes?
Nope! Cube any tomatoes you have or if using smaller tomatoes like grape or cherry then simply slice them in half!
Not a fan of cilantro or onions?
Leave them out! This would still be a tasty cucumber avocado tomato salad!
How to store leftovers (if you have any!)?
If you have leftovers, store them in an airtight container and refrigerate. Eat within 2-3 days.
This is truly a super easy recipe that won’t disappoint! It’s healthy, flavorful and delicious! Give it a try!
