FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

I don’t like cilantro; can I use something else?

Sure, fresh dill is a great substitute. If you go this route, I suggest using lemon juice in place of lime to compliment the flavor; parsley is another tasty alternative to freshen up our cucumber avocado and tomato salad.

Can I make the salad ahead of time?

Sure, make it the day before, but I suggest leaving the avocado out of it. When you’re ready to serve, cut your avocado and fold the pieces into the rest of your salad.
