Ingredients Notes

Tomato Avocado Cucumber Salad (1)

Cucumber: The English cucumber is best for the recipe because of its crispness. You can use the cucumber that you regularly have, but it needs to peel it first.

Avocado: Avocado is the recipe’s star because it makes the Salad creamy and delicious. A ripe avocado is best for Salad, so you must use ripe avocado to give the Salad the right texture. Be sure to use avocado with its healthy fats.

Lime Juice: The lemon gives the Salad brightness and increases its shine. Lime juice also preserves avocado from turning brown. Make sure to use freshly squeezed lemon juice.

Tomatoes: you have to use Roma tomatoes, which gives tenderness to the recipe. You can also use regular tomatoes as per your choice.  

Red Onion: Onions are vital ingredients in summer salads. The red onion gives the Salad what it needs. If you dislike using red onions in your Salad, replace them with green onions.

Dill: Dill gives the texture to the Salad next level. You can use basil or parsley if you don’t have dill.

Extra Virgin Olive Oil: use only good quality extra virgin olive oil. That makes the Salad amazingly tasty. Extra virgin oil doesn’t overwhelm other flavors of ingredients.

Salt and pepper: you can keep the Salad seasoning with kosher salt and black pepper. You can add more pepper to make your Salad spicy as per your taste.    

The dressing combines lime juice, olive oil, pepper, and salt.
