Quick and Creamy Avocado Tomato Salad with Cucumber

One of my favorite summer (or any other seasonal) salads is this excellent, light Creamy Avocado, Tomato, and Cucumber Salad. Juicy tomatoes, Persian cucumbers, and a perfectly ripe avocado make a tasty and fresh salad!

Many salads are great for the hot summer days, but there is no better salad than using the ingredients straight from the garden. The juicy fresh tomato and cucumber right from the vine, and the avocado that I had to buy because avocados don’t grow anywhere near me, which is sad. I love growing fresh herbs. It’s a simple thing but makes a big difference in health. Do you grow any vegetables, fruits, or herbs in your garden?

A hearty salad goes a long way!

Fresh summer vegetables make amazing salads for those hot summer months. When you’re at a cookout or have a potluck, this refreshing salad is the perfect side dish to bring. It’s one of my favorite salad recipes for summer picnics or any other special occasion.  A large salad bowl of it will fly and be gone so quickly. With bright flavors and colors, it’s no wonder. You can also have it as a light lunch. 

This delicious salad is made with only the best fresh ingredients.  There’s no way to make a perfect summer salad without cucumbers, and cherry tomatoes, and the creamy avocado texture is the perfect addition!

Even if your vegetables are not from the garden, the tomato cucumber avocado salad recipe will still taste delicious, refreshing, and satisfying. 

Why is this Cucumber Tomato Avocado Salad recipe good for you?

The best thing about this tomato avocado cucumber salad is it uses fresh produce and it’s super healthy. That means you can include this salad if you’re doing a low-carb diet. The tomatoes provide 20% of your daily vitamin A, cucumbers contain 19% of your daily vitamin K and avocados contain more potassium than bananas.

Did this make you want to whip up this quick salad for lunch? I sure hope so! There is no good substitute for a handful of ingredients that are simple and nutritious!

How to store this refreshing salad

Store leftovers in the refrigerator for up to 1 day in an airtight container. The avocado may brown slightly, and the vegetables will become more liquid, but the salad will still taste delicious. When you’re ready to serve again, squeeze a squirt of lemon juice and a sprinkle of salt.

Expert Tips 

  • Before adding the onions to the salad, cut them into thin slices and then soak them in water for a few minutes. Drain and add to the salad. This helps to preserve the flavor and avoid the onion aftertaste.
  • You can substitute the fresh dill with fresh cilantro.  
  • Do not add too much lemon juice. Just a hint is enough for the citrusy flavor.
