Hey guys, this is Lauren visiting from the food blog Tastes Better From Scratch . Happy Spring! I’ve already ditched my winter comfort food staples, for the most part, in place of lighter spring and summer fare.
Take this amazing Black Bean Burger, for example. It’s already been on our dinner menu twice. Another springtime favorite of mine is this Spring Pea Salad served with salmon or steak. Whoever thought eating healthy was hard is wrong! Nothing tastes better than a healthy meal with fresh seasonal ingredients.
This Tomato Cucumber Avocado Salad makes a great side dish to pretty much any meal. It’s beautiful with all of the fresh colors and flavor and it’s always a crowd favorite.
Tomato Cucumber Avocado Salad
1 large avocado, peeled, seeded, chopped
1 tsp lemon juice
2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved
2 cups yellow cherry tomatoes, halved
1-2 english cucumbers, peeled and chopped
1/4 cup chopped red onion
4 oz feta cheese crumbles
1 Tbsp red wine vinegar
2 Tbsp olive oil
salt and pepper, to taste
1/4 cup fresh chopped parsley
Drizzle lemon juice over chopped avocado. Place avocado, tomatoes, cucumbers, onion and feta cheese in a large bowl. Whisk together red wine vinegar, olive oil and salt and pepper. Pour over salad. Top with fresh parsley. Toss gently to combine.
