Avocado & Cucumber Salad

This Avocado & Cucumber Salad is the perfect healthy salad recipe for warm days or fresh starts. This recipe from Eating Well arrived at my door in April last year and I have adored this simple cucumber salad ever since. It is so flavorful and bright and takes only five minutes to prep, making it the perfect solution for a last minute get together. It pairs beautifully with grilled meats or fish (like my personal fave, grilled Tuna). Try this salad tonight and I guarantee you’ll make it on repeat all Summer long!
