The best part about making this Avocado Cucumber Tomato Salad is that you can make it in no time. I love the combination of avocados 🥑 with tomatoes 🍅 and when I started making this salad, the plan wasn’t to add avocados. But I am so glad that I did. Thankfully all my kids love avocados so this salad was a hit. 10/10!! Made with a simple lemon dressing that pairs so well with the flavors and freshness of this salad.

Ingredients you will need

  • English cucumber: or any cucumbers you have on hand. I also like Persian cucumber.
  • Cherry tomatoes: I love cherry tomatoes and If I can use them on all my salads I will. My next choice would be vine-ripe tomatoes.
  • Red onions: I love red onions in salads. Or you can use sweet onions.
  • Avocado: Do not use mushy avocados. Firm ones will work great.
  • Fresh herbs such as dill, cilantro, basil, or parsley: Use what you have. Parsley and dill will take it to another level.
  • Lemon juice: you can use lime
  • olive oil: my go-to oil for salads. A must
  • salt and pepper to taste

There are just 3 steps to making this salad. Wash and chop the ingredients. Place them in a bowl, and add in the homemade dressing which is just olive oil and lemon juice..

How to store it

Salads taste best as soon as they are prepared and do not store well. You can still store them even though you will lose some of its crunch. Place them in a sealed container in the fridge for up to 3 days.

What to pair with this salad

Frequently asked questions

Should you eat cucumbers and tomatoes in a salad together?

Yes! you sure can. Those two ingredients pair so well in salads.

Does avocado go well with tomatoes?

Absolutely! It is my favorite combination. You can for sure combine them in salads.

Do you refrigerate avocados?

If an avocado is ripe and ready but you aren’t ready to use it, then it is best to store it in the fridge to preserve it for a few more days until you are ready. If the avocado is more on the hard side, you do not have to refrigerate it just yet. It can sit on the kitchen counter for a few days.
