Cucumber Avocado Salad

Cucumber Avocado salad is a delicious and healthy side a warm summer day. It also makes a great in-between-meals snack, and it’s great as a dip!

The ingredients listed below are easily found as either loose produce, in the bulk aisle, or in glass containers. Hopefully you can find a refill service in your area or local co-op.

Herbs are difficult to find free of plastic packaging. For these items, I strongly recommend puechssing them from a farmers market where the vendors are usually happy to utilize your own bags, or even better, grow your own! Even in the winter, a small herb garden can be kept inside by a sunny window.

 

Ingredients:

  • 1 large avocado, diced (loose produce)
  • 1 cucumber, diced (loose produce)
