This garden-fresh tomato, cucumber avocado salad is sprinkled with fresh herbs and finished with lemon juice and extra virgin olive oil. It’s a delightful salad that screams summer and could not be any easier to make.
Tomato, cucumber avocado salad is one of my go-to salad recipes during the hot Summer months. It’s such a simple recipe and is packed with flavor.
If you have a garden, there is a good chance you have some of these ingredients on hand already. Otherwise, any local market will do the job.

The beauty of this salad is its simplicity! It’s so important to buy the freshest, most in-season ingredients you can find.
