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.

- 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!

It's not so big a deal!

There are some things that have been causing wahala for me and I am wondering if other people have the same experience.

Using people's photos as BBM or WhatsApp display pictures:
When it is a person's birthday, there is a trend where the person's photo is displayed  along with wishes. This extends to when someone is getting married, celebrating a wedding anniversary, a child's birthday and any possible thing to celebrate. 

This is an amazing thing to do and it sure makes people feel acknowledged and special.
 I have both of these applications on my phone and I use them like anyone else but there are certainly parts I know I do not explore.
