Cucumber, Red Onion, and Avocado Salad

 At the time I made this recipe, it still felt like summer.

CROA Salad 2

Two short days later, it feels like we skipped right to Autumn and possibly on the verge of winter. Oh well, I’ll eat avocados at any time of year and when mixed with cucumbers and red onions, it reminds me of summer days. At least the cucumbers I’ve had to save in my garden can be put to good use still…and for just a little while longer.

I hope you’ll enjoy this super simple, really healthy and light salad recipe, too.
