Tomato Cucumber Avocado Cilantro Salad

This is a salad that I make almost everyday. It is easy, simple, healthy and tasty. It goes well with chicken, fish, steak or pizza. I love adding avocado. It gives richness to the salad (plus it is full of healthy fats).


2 cups of baby mixed greens
1/2 of cucumber, sliced
1 large tomato and 15 cherry tomatoes, sliced into bite size pieces
1/2 of avocado, seeded and sliced
2 tablespoons of olive oil
1/4 cup of cilantro, chopped
1 tablespoon of fresh lemon juice
1 clove of garlic, minced
salt and pepper


In a large salad bowl combine mixed greens, tomato, cucumber, avocado and cilantro. In a small bowl whisk together olive oil, lemon juice and garlic. Pour salad dressing into the bowl with salad ingredients and toss. Salt and pepper to taste.
