Oh, I'd forgotten how yummy this recipe is! I went digging through my cooking notebook (which is just shy of completely falling apart), and rediscovered this recipe I had saved four years ago. Whoops! And now, I'm wondering what other amazing recipes are in there that I'd forgotten about?
This salad takes approximately three minutes to put together. All you do is chop, stir, and toss it in the fridge. It's got my favorite summertime flavors - cucumber, lime, and cilantro - mixed with creamy avocado, so there's no need for a dressing! Chop, stir, and toss it in the fridge. It doesn't get much simpler (or tastier) than this!
