This healthy and easy salad recipe is amazing. My husband and I have been experimenting with different plant based recipes and I decided to give this tomato and cucumber salad recipe a shot . I enjoy cucumbers, cherry tomatoes, and avocado on a weekly basis so I thought I would try mixing up these ingredients. It will not disappoint! The husband loved it! The best part is that I typically buy all of the ingredients at our local Trader Joe’s .
1/2 pound cherry tomatoes or grape tomatoes
1.5 avocado , diced
3 Persian cucumbers
1/3 cup red onion, diced
1/4 cup basil pesto
1.5 tablespoon lemon juice
salt and pepper to taste
In a large bowl , combine halved tomatoes, diced avocado , sliced cucumber, diced onion . Add basil pesto and lemon juice to the salad and toss to combine. Season with salt and pepper , if desired. Use more or less pesto if desired.
