Avocado Salad

Spring is here! Spring is here! I’m so excited. This means my CSA is starting back up and I get local yummy fresh vegetables! I will write about CSAs for Thursday.

I love avocados almost as much as I love spring. Okay, I’m lying. I love avocados as much as I love spring. When they are abundant and ripe, I super enjoy this simple salad.

What you will need:

1 ripe avocado

1 ripe tomato, vine ripened or roma both work well if not pulling from a garden

1 medium cucumber

The juice from a fresh lemon

Cut avocado in half and remove the pit. I like to dice the meat of the avocado right in the skin and then scoop it out into my bowl. Dice the tomato and add to bowl. Dice up enough cucumber to balance the other two ingredients and add to bowl. Squeeze in as much lemon juice as you like. If lemon is not your favorite flavor, add just enough juice to not let the avocado turn brown. Stir and enjoy!
