Tomato, Cucumber, Avocado Salad

Fresh, simple and delicious. A great compliment to any protein, this salad is perfect for any night of the week. The reason for soaking the onions in water is to remove some of the bite making them perfect for a fresh salad. If you like olives feel free to add them. Enjoy!

Tomato, Cucumber, Avocado Salad
1-1/2 C. of chopped tomatoes
1 cucumber, peeled and seeded then diced
1 avocado, diced
4-oz. feta cheese, cubed
2 Tbsp. minced red onion, soaked in water
1 handful parsley – about 2 Tbsp, minced
2 Tbsp. olive oil
2 Tbsp. red wine vinegar
8 twists of black pepper from a pepper mill

Chop tomatoes into a medium dice. If using grape or cherry tomatoes just cut in half. Add to a bowl. Peel and seed one cucumber and dice. Add cucumber, avocado, feta, onion, and minced parsley to bowl. Whisk together olive oil, red wine vinegar and black pepper, and pour over salad. Toss gently so the feta and avocado don’t break up. Serve immediately. If you are not serving right away, keep the avocado aside uncut, and add before serving to prevent browning.

    I’m making this dish Sun for company. Will let you know how we liked it. Also trying turtle cheesecake brownies.

    After making a purse all afternoon we were ready for a light dinner. This salad was very good, very fresh and could be made ahead of time. We both loved it. I opted out of the brownies.
