Here's a light salad that is great any time of the year. We had it tonight on a spectacularly hot summer evening.
I use one English cucumber, one or two nice sized ripe tomatoes, (tonight's salad had lots of cherry tomatoes cut into quarters) one ripe avocado for a nice sized salad for the two of us, but then we don't have other vegetables with it. If there are more than the two of us eating this, we just have more vegetables and/or another salad.
Dice the cucumber, tomato, and avocado into bite-sized pieces. Toss them in a bowl with one of the following:
A dash of salt and pepper
or a dressing of your choice.
I prefer just a bit of salt. It keeps it plain and simple and brings out the taste of the vegetables.
If you're a weight watcher...the salad is 2 points for the avocado, THAT'S IT!
