Long gone are the days of the boring lunch salad. Sad iceberg lettuce with watery tomatoes and shredded carrots are an insult to the medium. You deserve more than that, and so does salad's reputation. When you do a salad right, it should be hearty, varied in texture, and combine delicious (and maybe unexpected) flavors. You should be excited about eating it for lunch or dinner (and maybe even breakfast!).

The cucumber tomato avocado salad is a bright and refreshing salad, and it doesn't take a lot to put together. It's essentially big chunks of tomato, red onion, avocado, cucumber, lemon, olive oil, cilantro, and seasoning. It almost seems more like super-sized salsa than an actual salad, and that's what makes it so interesting.
This salad is the kind of thing you'd want to serve at a potluck this summer, or maybe alongside a juicy steak or burger. I can also see it being perfectly lovely as a lunch salad with a side of good bread.
