Directions

  1. Cut cucumber ribbons into bite size pieces.
  2. Stir cucumber, green onions, avocado, and cilantro together in a bowl.
  3. Whisk lime juice, mayonnaise, hot sauce, salt, and black pepper together in a small bowl until dressing is smooth and creamy.
  4. Drizzle dressing over salad and toss to coat. Garnish with micro cilantro leaves.
Mealthy tip:

Micro cilantro is the baby version of the mature plant and, like all baby things, is adorable. The flavor is also much subtler than grown-up cilantro. It's one of many flavor-packed micro herbs and shoots now readily available in grocery stores. If you have a good market near you, they probably stock it.

This recipe is one of my favorites. The hot sauce adds a nice bit of kick, and the green onions add great flavor. Delightful!

I left out the green onion because they and I are not really friends. I'm convinced nobody actually likes green onions, but everyone is afraid to say so. Except me. I'm happy to say it. This was a nice surprise, to me. I usually shy from salads with mayonnaise, but this was lightly enough used that it worked. I am not even sure it was needed, thanks to the avocado. Maybe I'll try without next time. Also, I used sport pepper-infused vinegar. I love that stuff and it worked really well in this salad. try it!
