WATCH OUT! OMT! is getting her street talk on!
Christmas dinner filled with heavy offerings? Why not bring a light, yet flavor-packed salad? Why not, indeed.
This recipe is traditional summer fare, but works on any table, any occasion. Well, maybe not a bachelor’s party or a cookie swap, but you get what I’m telling you, right?
This salad be versatile!
- 1 medium cucumber
- 2 medium tomatoes
- 2 avocados, peeled
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 tsp. fresh lemon juice
- 1 tsp. freshly ground pepper
- Chop all veggies into 1-inch cubes.
- Mix chopped veggies with garlic, lemon juice and pepper in bowl. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour before serving.
This salad is good in the winter when you want something to offset heavy meals and can be mixed into pasta, but in the summer, with homegrown produce, it's off the charts delicious.
Trust me, baby.
* This recipe was cut from the San Antonio Express News Food Section almost 20-years ago; I don't know the original source.
Typically, I double the recipe. I also prefer to eat it the day it’s made. There’s something about avocados that have been sitting around that is. just. not. right. But, you totally do what feels right to you. Don’t let my weird food issues get in your way, no sir.
Happy impressing the hostess!
Now, get to choppin’! Get to tossin’!
