I don't post recipes often, because the truth is - I rarely follow them. I cook almost daily, but I never measure or follow a recipe step-by-step. While we were trapped in the house this past weekend, I started using whatever I had on hand to feed my family and created this healthy, fresh avocado salad with cucumber, homemade pickled onions, cilantro and lime.
Here's what it takes:
2 ripe avocados, sliced and diced
4 cucumbers, seeded and diced
1/2 red onion, pickled (quick pickling recipe: 1 large red onion finely sliced, 1/2c vinegar, 3T sugar, pinch of salt. let sit covered for 20min at room temp)
6 packs of True Lime (this is my new obsession - perfect for everything from salads to Bloody Marys
1 bunch of chopped cilantro
pinch of salt (to taste)
To assemble: toss together cucumbers, pickled onions, cilantro, lime, and salt. Add avocados and fold in so that they don't smash. When you serve, you can top with Siracha if you dare!
We ate it as a side the first time I made it - and then later topped our beef brisket tacos with it. Delicious and no added fats - just flavor!
