posted in Health & Fitness

  • This is a quick and easy salad to put together that uses just a couple of summer ingredients. Juicy cherry tomatoes, cool, crunchy cucumber and creamy avocado. I’ve added some salty feta, red onion and a little minced parsley as well. Toss with a simple red wine vinaigrette and the salad is ready in under 15 minutes

    A couple of notes:

  • Soak the red onion slice in a little water, for a couple of minutes, before mincing. This will remove some of the raw onion taste.

    Avocado does not refrigerate well. So if you are not eating it right away, wait to add the avocado until just before serving.

    It you want to make a vegan version of this tomato, cucumber, avocado salad then substitute kalamata olives for the feta cheese

    Chop tomatoes into a medium dice. If using cherry tomatoes, cut in half. Add to a bowl.
    Peel and seed one cucumber and dice. Add to bowl.
    Remove pit, dice avocado and using a spoon scoop out the avocado from the peel. Add to bowl.
    Cube feta and add to bowl.
