We all love the cozy, comfort foods of the fall and winter season. But with spring upon us, and even warmer weather ahead, our cravings for lighter fare like fresh salads and fruit increase. Most of us, however, are busy people who don’t have the time everyday to throw together complicated salads that call for more ingredients than we can count on our fingers. If you’re one of those souls who come home tired after work and don’t want to spend much time and effort on cooking, then we have the salad for you.
This Cucumber Tomato Avocado Salad recipe is unique in that it isn’t chock-full of lettuce. It’s light and tasty, popping with color, and requires items you probably already have in your kitchen.
It’s as easy as 1-2-3 or Slice-Toss-and-Enjoy!
