It is summertime! I love making fresh salads this time of year to enjoy especially as a side with BBQ. Lately, one of my favorites is this avocado salad. Think of it almost like a deconstructed guacamole but even better. The avocados offer a delicious creamy bite while the red onions and cucumbers are crisp. The dressing is subtle but tangy and really ties this all together. I am telling you, make this!
This avocado salad is perfect for taco night instead of traditional guacamole and as a side for your next gathering. It takes less than 20 minutes to put together too as most of it is prep work. You cannot go wrong! It’s fresh and vibrant while exploding with flavors. I actually made this the other day next to some vegetarian stuffed peppers for a full-on vegan meal! Be sure to give this a try and let me know what you think in the comments below!
