This easy cucumber tomato avocado salad is healthy, fresh, and bursting with flavor. It comes together fast and uses everyday ingredients.
Ok, so I guess this could definitely pass for a summer salad recipe, but I'm already missing warmer weather foods... so here we are.
I made this cucumber avocado salad a few weeks before actually posting it on here. I've been trying to fit it in between Thanksgiving side dish and Christmas cookie posts, and I finally decided to put it up.
Out of season? I need the occasional out of season recipe to survive the snow that's already been here for a few weeks now. *whines*
Let's take a second to recall the wonderful flavors of juicy ripe tomatoes, perfectly green and creamy avocados, and refreshing cucumber. Ahhh.
Seems so long ago that I was enjoying summer weather and summer flavors.
This avocado and tomato salad is super easy to fix, and I recommend adjusting the lime juice, onion, and oil quantities to suit your taste buds. You could also scale it down easily (this recipe makes a large salad)... just play with the ingredients until the ratios are to your liking. This easy salad is a thing of beauty.
Hope you love this simple avocado salad recipe... it's a keeper for any time of year! File it away for summer if you want more pumpkin now instead. 😉

Is there a way I could prep this for lunch, or anyway to make the salad last a couple of hours before I can actually eat it?
I would cut the avocado up right before serving it.

This salad is perfect timing for me here in Australia, we are just about to go into summer. It looks delicious and I think I will be eating plenty of it over the coming months. Sorry to hear the snow has already started for you.
Thanks so much, Lizzie!! I wish I lived in Australia haha. 🙂 Hope you enjoy it!!
