  • 5 green onions, light green and white parts only, thinly sliced
  • 2 Haas avocados, cut into ½-inch cubes
  • ¼ cup basil leaves, thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • freshly ground black pepper to taste

Directions

  1. Place tomatoes, cucumber, green onions, avocados, and basil in a large bowl; drizzle with oil and lemon juice and season with salt and pepper.
  2. Toss salad gently to combine.
Mealthy tip:

This summery salad is best served just after it's dressed, but you can make parts of it ahead of time. Cut the tomatoes, cucumbers and green onions and place in a large covered container and refrigerate for up to two days. Just before serving, toss with avocado, basil, lemon juice, oil and season.

Heirloom tomatoes worked perfectly for this recipe. I prefer them to cherry tomatoes because of how much juice they contain. I used lime juice instead of lemon, just seemed like a better fit with the avocado. I also garnished with cilantro. Very good salad.

I used the red cherry tomatoes, Persian cucumbers, green onions, and extra avocado for this salad. I took it to the beach for my little picnic with a few friends. I made the olive oil dressing and put it in a small container until I was ready to eat the salad. Perfect!

I made this salad for a casual party at my house and my guests loved it. I prepared the salad ahead of time, as suggested. I waited until it was time to serve before I cut the avocado. I also used three avocados instead of two.

This was a delicious salad! I made it for an impromptu get together at my house and everyone raved about it all night. Instead of lemon I added a little lime juice because that's all I had on hand, and it worked nicely. This is going to be my new go-to salad for casual gatherings.
