Tomato Cucumber Avocado Salad

I love summer, but here in the South, it gets so hot that all I want for lunch or dinner is something light and refreshing. And I definitely don’t want to spend much time in the kitchen cooking near the hot cooktop or oven. This past Saturday, we had for dinner Honey Chipotle Chicken with this tomato cucumber avocado salad.

It was a light, cool and nutritious salad that is a great summer salad for cookouts, BBQ or any day of the week. You can eat it as a side dish to some grilled chicken or steak. You can also serve it as a salad topped with some grilled chicken strips or salmon. Either way, it’s delicious and easy to make. Even my husband who doesn’t like avocados cleaned up his plate. 🙂 Tomatoes and avocados are some of my favorite vegetables to eat in the summer. And I also like to incorporate in my recipes a lot of fruits this time of the year. I just love a mix of sweet and savory.

And what are your favorite summer vegetables or fruits?
