So I may be screaming inside in terror of no “me time” for the summer but I’m also screaming inside for excitement! Guys, this Tomato Avocado Cucumber Salad is EVERYTHING!

Why?

Ahem .. AVOCADO.

That should be enough for you to make it! Avocado steals the show every time… or most of the time! But in this case, the combination of the sweet cherry tomatoes, refreshing cucumber, lemony basil, and light vinaigrette make this salad irresistible!

Can’t wait to hear what you think, what you serve it with, and how many people ask you for the recipe!

  1. This looks so yummy! My husband doesn’t like cilantro, so I’m excited to see this recipe uses basil, which he loves! Can’t wait to try this summer. Also, your wooden serving bowl is gorgeous! I’ve been looking for one just like it. Would you mind sharing where you got it? πŸ™‚
