Cucumber Tomato Avocado Salad

Cucumber Tomato Avocado Salad is a simple, delicious and quick salad perfect for dinner or for BBQs and get togethers. It’s so light and refreshing!

Cucumber is nice and light, which makes any dish it’s served in feel refreshing. Try Cucumber Salsa or Greek Cucumber Cups for some other fresh side dishes.

Light & Refreshing Salad

I have a new favorite salad, guys! This Cucumber Tomato Avocado Salad has all of my favorite ingredients. I’ve made it a few times in the last month and each time does not disappoint.

The ingredients include tomatoes, cucumber, avocados, cilantro, Feta cheese, and dressing. It tastes really fresh!

We used Italian dressing for ease, but this would be great with many dressings – maybe a Chipotle Ranch or Creamy Avocado. 😉

This salad is also so easy and is really quick to make. With the avocados in there, you definitely want to try and make right before serving so they don’t brown, but I have a feeling this will be a hit at any party you are bringing this to.

Just Chop & Mix!

CHOP. Slice up all your veggies and put them in a bowl. Chop up cilantro and place with veggies along with Feta cheese. Add salt and pepper to taste.

DRESSING. Add dressing right before serving.

Additions

  • If cilantro isn’t your favorite, dill is a yummy substitute. Basil is another good substitute as well.
  • Add purple or green onion for another layer of flavor.
  • Add some shredded or drilled chicken.
  • Mix in some arugula or spinach.

Serve this as a side salad for a main dish such as:

Tips for Making Ahead & Storing

Make ahead: Like many fruits, avocados start to turn brown after being cut. Thankfully putting them in the fridge slows down the process. You can make the salad a couple of hours ahead of serving it and keep it covered in the fridge. 

Storage: Leftover cucumber tomato avocado salad can be stored, covered, in the fridge for 2-3 days. The avocados will begin to brown, but they will still be ok to eat.

Seriously? I just had this again a few days ago and I’m already wishing I could have it again. Because of how good it tastes and how simple it is, I have a feeling this will be a regular salad here at the house. 😉

    1. I do too!!! Salads are the best in summer! I hope you like it, as much as you can tell you will:)

  1. Can you suggest another herb that might work well? This sounds so good, but I’m not a big fan of cilantro.

    1. You could try flat leaf parsley, but maybe not add as much as the cilantro amount. Too much, might taste a little bitter. Hope that helps and I’d love to know if you give it a try!

    Kristyn, you have an incredible blog with really good photography. Making me hungry. I’ve been browsing around for the past little while. My wife and I really love this love this tomato, cucumber & avocado salad. This might be the first time I’ve ever eaten cucumber & avocado for breakfast – LOL! Anyway, great blog.

  5. 5 stars
    Quick and easy to make with ingredients I always have on hand. It balances well with a heavier meat dish like your steak and marinade.

  6. I so appreciate you providing the nutrition for your recipes because I am on a KETO diet. I use many of your recipes that are KETO-friendly. However, I don’t understand the nutrition amounts for this recipe. Are the amounts for the WHOLE salad, or for a single serving? Also, the recipe doesn’t state how many servings are in this recipe. Thank you for your wonderful recipes.

    1. The nutrition facts would be for the whole salad. Thanks for pointing out we didn’t have the serving size. We’ll work on getting it updated.
