Avocado Cucumber Salad
AVOCADO CUCUMBER SALAD
Is it bad that I’m over it? We eat pretty dang healthy in general but I don’t mind a treat here and there. So this all or nothing approach has me wanting to rebel and dive face first into a bowl of cookie dough.
You know how they say chocolate is a mood elevator? Well, avocados do the same thing for me.
As long as I can throw some avocado on top of an omelet, toast, or in a salad…I’m happy.
This salad is light, tangy and a beautiful monochromatic dish.
