Avocado Tomato Salad Recipe
Everyone loves summer. It means beautiful sunny weather which also means a lot of outdoor grilling. Grilling, in turn, calls for amazing salad recipes to pair with all the grilling. This is where my Avocado Tomato Salad comes in handy. You will love this salad recipe. It tastes so fresh and very easy to make and can be ready in less than 15 minutes. It really will make a great side dish for all your summer grilling.
Sometimes I wish I live on the west coast where its summer all year round and I can have my own vegetable garden. Think about unlimited access to fresh vegetables! Vegetables in your own garden taste so much better than vegetables from the store. Who knows what I am talking about before I ramble too much? lol
I am so lucky my children love salads! They love all kinds but they love this Avocado Tomato Salad the most because it doesn’t have too many ingredients and it has avocados which are their all-time favorite! They can snack on avocados every day. I literally cut the avocado in half, make slices through it, in squares, add salt, lemon, and olive oil and they scoop it with a spoon devour it!

This is one of the best salads ever! No matter who I serve it to they all love it. It is the dressing that makes it so good. One thing I do is smash the cucumber, then salt it and let it sit in a colander for 30 minutes. This makes the cucumber so crunchy and it stays crunchy even if you have left overs.
Put your cucumber in a plastic bag. I hit it with a rolling pin just to break it up a little. Then I tear it in to bite size pieces and put it in the colander and salt it and let it drain for 30 minutes.
Wow. I am going to have to try that. Thanks for the tip

Hi Rena! This looks delicious! How long does it keep for? I’d love to meal prep this to take for lunch at work. I know how finicky avocados can be but I was wondering how long the lemon juice keeps them fresh! Think I could get two days’ (mon & tues) worth of lunches out of it if I made it say Sunday night? Thank you!
Hi Kat. Yes, I would say two days tops. The avocados do get dark. Maybe add the dressing later? Also, if you can place a plastic wrap right over the avocado salad it will help with preserving the color and freshness.
