Cucumber Tomato Avocado Salad

I love this summery, fresh salad. And even though I would love nothing more than to experience some fall-like weather, it’s still pretty hot here in the South and it may not cool down for quite a few more weeks. In the meantime, I’ll keep enjoying some of my favorite summer foods – like this cucumber tomato avocado salad. I served it as a side dish to turkey burgers on the grill. Yum!

So easy to make! In the recipe, I stated to use Roma tomatoes but as you can see in the pictures, I actually used little orange Zima tomatoes. They are so sweet and delicious! Use your favorite – cherry, grape, beefsteak, etc.

You’ll also see that you can substitute the fresh cilantro for dill or your favorite herb. The dressing could not be any easier and the avocado, when stirred together, even makes this salad a little creamy. If you love tomatoes and cucumber together as much as I do, check out another super simple salad here.

So, are you sad to see summer go or are you ready for fall??

Either way, I hope you’ll enjoy this cucumber tomato avocado salad for as long as you can!
