Tomato and Cucumber Salad

Summer at its best! You can certainly make this with parsley if you hate cilantro. Amounts of ingredients can be adjusted to taste.


2-3 medium tomatoes, diced into bite-sized pieces (about 2 cups diced tomatoes)
2 medium cucumbers, diced into bite-sized pieces (about 1 cup diced cucumber)
1 avocado, diced into bite-sized pieces
1 cup chopped cilantro (use more or less to taste)
1 T + 2 T fresh squeezed lime juice
1 T best quality extra virgin olive oil
1/4 tsp. Spike seasoning (optional, but good)
salt to taste (I used Vege-Sal, but sea salt would be great here)


Peel avocado and cut into 1/2 inch pieces (I use this method for peeling and cutting an avocado.) Put avocado pieces into plastic or glass bowl and toss with 1 T lime juice. Season generously with salt. Chop tomatoes, cucumbers, and cilantro and add to avocado in bowl. Whisk together 2 T lime juice and 1 T olive oil (with Spike seasoning if using) then stir gently into salad. Serve immediately. This doesn't keep well, so only make as much as will be eaten right away.
