Avocado, tomato and cucumber salad

Last weekend, there was a pool hang out I was to go to. I wondered what I could possibly take to eat that would not be heavy, so I opted for a salad. It's the easiest thing to make.

Ingredients
- lemon juice
- black pepper
- coconut oil (I used this in the absence of olive oil and it worked perfectly!)
- 8 avocados
- 4 tomatoes
- 2 large cucumbers

Method of preparation

I prepared the dressing a night before...
- juice from one big juicy lemon
- quarter teaspoon of black pepper
- 2 tablespoons of coconut oil

Mix these three ingredients in a bowl and cover then leave overnight in a cool place. I wanted all the ingredients to marinate into each other instead of having the taste of each one stand out, especially the black pepper.

The next day, I chopped avocados, tomatoes and cucumbers into bite sizes then mixed them all up. I poured the dressing over, then put in the fridge.


The salad was a winner! Healthy and not heavy, everyone loved it. Apologies I didn't take photos of the dressing or the salad.

Feeling lazy, put this together, it is certainly one to try and it takes less than an hour to prepare!

    1. For a minute I thought bananas but don't know how that would taste with the dressing. Hard boiled eggs, cheese or chickpeas might be another option? Let me know if you try please, that could give us an idea of what could be a substitute for those of you who do not like avocado.
