Hello Friends and Family!
I just love you guys. Don’t you just wish sometimes that everyone you love could live in the same place?! It could be called Besttowneverton. Or Heaven… either way.
On another note, I have a fresh and tangy salad recipe to share with you! It’s great any time of year, but is my favorite when the weather is still warm and you can enjoy it outside with a cold drink 🙂
Avocado, Cucumber and Cherry Tomato Salad with Balsamic
Here’s how ya make it!
1 Pint red cherry tomatoes
1 Pint yellow cherry tomatoes (can use 2 red, but the colors are so pretty with this!)
1/4 Red onion, finely chopped
2 Cucumbers chopped into rounds (I used Japanese cucumbers- which are similar to English cucumbers)
1 Ripe Avocado cut into chunks
For the vinaigrette:
1/4 Cup Balsamic Vinegar
2 Tbsp Olive Oil
1 Tsp Salt
1 Tsp Pepper
Place vinaigrette ingredients in a jar with a lid and shake to combine. Pour vinaigrette over the rest of the ingredients and enjoy! Salt and pepper to taste.
That’s it! It is best if you leave it in the fridge overnight to let the flavors come together. Some days, this is all I want for lunch… but I put shredded chicken in because I feel the need to make it a complete meal 😉 and then I eat a few dark chocolate chips- because – duh, Chocolate.
Hope you love it!
