Fresh Avocado Salad

 

This is my first blog post ever!  I decided to start out by sharing a recipe that’s one of my favorites and I make it a lot.  It’s so fresh, so simple, and so delicious!  I even have it for breakfast sometimes.  There’s just something so cool and refreshing about this mix of raw avocado, tomato, and cucumber.

Fresh Avocado Salad
Author: 
Recipe type: Salad
Prep time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 2-3
 
Ingredients
  • 1 tomato, diced
  • 1 avocado, peeled and chopped
  • 1 small cucumber, peeled and chopped
  • 2 heaping teaspoons of Vegenaise
  • seasoning of choice (see below)
Instructions
  1. Mix all ingredients and enjoy.
  2. You can also serve this on lettuce or spinach or use it as filling in a wrap.
  3. For seasoning, I generally use Herbamare. It's a versatile seasoning salt I get from my local health food store, and I use it on all kinds of things. Something like Mrs. Dash or a garlic seasoning could work, too. It doesn't take much; just shake some on the top before you stir it up and add more to taste.
  4. If you're not a fan of Vegenaise, try using Italian dressing instead.
Notes
This makes enough for 2-3 servings, depending on the size of your ingredients, but I must admit I sometimes eat the whole thing! I haven't tried it yet, but I think black olives could make a nice addition to this mix. You could also try peppers or onions, although I think the cucumbers add the perfect amount of crunch.

  1. […] I’ve been experimenting in the kitchen a lot the past couple of days. Mostly because I was avoiding doing my taxes. But I came up with four new recipes, so it worked out nicely. What are the recipes, you ask? Tomato pie, gluten-free salsa biscuits, raw kiwi cream crumble, and the recipe I’m sharing today–tangy cream sauce. A couple of these need some tweaking before they’re ready to join the internet recipe box, but I wanted to share this tangy cream sauce with you ASAP.  Actually, the photo above is what I had for supper tonight, along with some avocado salad.
