Cucumber Tomato Avocado Salad

This crisp, tasty Cucumber Tomato Avocado Salad with red onions and feta is the perfect addition to your potluck, cookout or family dinner. Great side with grilled or BBQ chicken!  Easy and healthy with the best summer flavors! Serves 6 Total Time: 20 minutes


 1/2  small red onion — thinly sliced
 1 large English cucumber — quartered lengthwise and sliced
 1 pint halved cherry tomatoes or 2 cups chopped Campari tomatoes
 2 medium avocados — peeled, pitted, and diced
 1/3 cup crumbled feta cheese — divided
 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro (or dill or parsley)

 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice — from about 2 small limes
 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
 2 teaspoons honey
 2 cloves minced garlic (about 1 teaspoon)
 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
 1/2 teaspoon black pepper


Place the sliced red onions in a small bowl and cover them with cold water (this helps remove some of the onions’ harsh bite). In a small bowl or large measuring cup, whisk together the dressing ingredients: Lime juice, olive oil, honey, garlic, salt, and pepper. In a very large bowl, place the cucumbers, tomatoes, avocado, half of the feta, and cilantro. Drain the red onion, then add it to the bowl. Pour the dressing over the top, then stir very gently to combine. Sprinkle the remaining feta over the top. Enjoy immediately or cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for up to 4 hours. Give the mixture a gentle stir just before serving.
