  • 1 English cucumber, thinly sliced
  • 1 large ripe avocado, chopped
  • 1/3 cup thinly sliced red onion
  • 1/4 cup fresh chopped cilantro
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil or avocado oil
  • 2 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
  • Kosher salt and fresh black pepper


  1. Add the tomatoes, cucumbers, avocado, red onions, and cilantro to a large salad bowl.
