What to do with the Leftovers

  • Refrigerate: Store the leftover avocado cucumber tomato salad in an airtight container for 3 days.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I make the salad ahead of time?

Sure, prepare the salad the day before. However, I recommend leaving out the avocado. When you’re ready to serve, fold the avocado pieces into the salad.

Can I use something other than cilantro?

Sure, fresh dill or parsley are great substitutes. If you go this route, use lemon juice in place of lime to compliment the flavor.

I made this salad for dinner last night and it was a hit! The fresh herbs and juicy tomato paired perfectly with the creamy avocado and crisp cucumber. The addition of olive oil and lime gave it a delicious zing that took it to the next level. I loved having it as a light meal, but it would also make a fantastic side dish for any gathering. Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe!
