I have been married to a wonderful Christian man since 1976. The Lord has blessed us with two daughters and two sons. I consider each day the Lord gives me on the earth yet another chance to serve Him.

Avocado-Cucumber-Tomato Salad

This is good anytime of the year, but I especially like it when the cucumber & tomatoes are in season.   It goes great with any meal.

(serves 4-6)

*2  cucumbers, deseeded and sliced.
*1 1/2 cups cherry or Roma tomatoes, sliced (I use fresh tomatoes, diced when in season)
*3 ripe avocados, peeled and sliced.
*1/2 red onion, sliced
*1/4 cup fresh cilantro or 1 1/2 teaspoons dried cilantro
*1 teaspoon lemon zest
*lemon juice, squeezed from two lemons
*1 garlic clove, minced
*1/4 teaspoon salt
*1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
* 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

~Mix all veggies into one bowl.
~In a small bowl, whisk cilantro, lemon zest, lemon juice, garlic, salt, pepper and olive oil together.
~Toss dressing mixture into veggies.
~Serve immediately.
