One of my favorite summer (or not) salads is this Creamy Avocado, Tomato and Cucumber salad.
Garden fresh salad and health benefits
There are many salads that are great for summer, 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 avocado that I had to buy because avocados don’t grow anywhere near me, sad. I love growing fresh herbs, a simple thing but makes a big difference in health, cilantro has been helping me keep my urine traction healthy. Do you grow any vegetables, fruits or herbs in your garden?
Even if your vegetables are not from the garden, avocado tomato cucumber salad will taste delicious, refreshing and satisfying. Why should you eat this salad? Because 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!
