10-Minute Cucumber Avocado Salad Recipe: The Best Recipe You Could Make Tonight

"Whoever said 'simple is best' was talking about this chopped salad for sure!" says Rachel Maser, mom of four and founder/creator of the clean eating blog, Clean Food Crush®. "It’s such a simple one, yet it’s also one of the tastiest combos I’ve recently eaten. The crisp fresh cucumbers combined with creamy rich avocado pieces then drizzled in a tangy flavorful homemade dressing. The best thing you could make tonight!"

Serve this tangy cucumber and avocado salad as a side dish with chicken, beef, pork, lamb or seafood. Or serve it as a light vegetarian lunch or dinner. This is best eaten right away, as avocados do turn brown quickly.
