Swap out the veggies! If you have extra veggies in the fridge that need to be used, you can totally switch up this salad. Replace the cucumber with some sautéed zucchini or add in some chopped grilled asparagus. Add in some pickled jalapeños for some spice & tang or bell peppers for a milder, sweeter crunch or give it more of a Mediterranean vibe with oregano and some feta!
This flavourful tomato and avocado salad is simple, colorful and healthy too! I love avocados and tomatoes, and the two complement each other very well. Red onion tastes really well as well, but i haven’t added it this time.
Dress it with fresh basil, fresh lime juice, olive oil, salt, pepper and a pinch of red pepper flakes. I promise you will feel great after eating this wholesome salad.
