A Cucumber-Avocado Salad?
Who would have ever thought to combine cucumbers and avocados??
Well, I for one, am glad they did - because this vegetable salad recipe is cool, refreshing and quick & easy to prepare.
A real nice change from the same old - same old simple salad recipes.
This easy salad recipe has very few ingredients - actually on 1 fruit and 1 vegetable. The rest of the ingredients are for the dressing.
How simple is that ?
A salad that even comes with it's own dressing built right in! A great idea, if you ask me - and really tasty too.
1. Cut the avocado in half, dig out the pit, and spoon the flesh out of the skin onto a flat plate or cutting board.
2. Using a fork, mash the avocado slightly.
3. Stir in the green onions, avocado oil, lime juice, coriander, salt & pepper and mix it all together to make a chunky dressing.
4. Taste test the dressing - adjust seasonings to your preference
5. Dice the cucumber lengthwise and quarter-wise into bite sized chunks.
6. Toss the cucumbers with the dressing.
7. Serve immediately, garnished with more green onions and coriander, if desired.
