Cucumber Avocado Salad


This salad is gluten-free, dairy-free and vegetarian… but you should make it anyway, lol, because it’s fresh and green and totally hits the spot. It also takes about 5 minutes, tops, to put together which means that you can make as much of a habit of it as we have. 

If you’re not into lime and cilantro or parsley, try lemon and dill. If you’re not into mayo, try using yogurt. Or, skip the creamy dressing entirely. You could make a Tex-Mexish variation with minced jalapeno, olive oil and ground cumin, or a Japanese-ish version with a dressing of toasted sesame oil, miso, rice vinegar, ginger and garnished with toasted black and/or white sesame seeds.  

INGREDIENTS:

3/4 to 1 pound seedless cucumber, washed and chopped into chunks

2 thin or 1 regular scallions, thinly sliced

1 large avocado, pitted and diced

2 tablespoons mayonaise

Juice of half a lime, plus more to taste

Salt and hot sauce (we used Sriracha) to taste

Chopped cilantro or flat-leaf parsley to garnish

INSTRUCTIONS: Combine cucumber, scallions and avocado in a bowl. Whisk together mayo, lime and seasonings, adjusting levels to taste. Drizzle salad with dressing and garnish with cilantro or parsley.
