Avocado Tomato Salad with Cucumber
A fresh avocado salad with juicy tomatoes, crisp cucumber, and a chickpea boost! Only 7 ingredients, easy to make, and customizable.
Servings5 side servings
- 2 large avocados (ripe but not too soft)
- 1 cup chickpeas (cooked)
- 1 small cucumber (I use English/hothouse)
- 8 oz. grape tomatoes (or 3 romas, etc.)
- 1/3 cup red onion, finely diced
- 1/3 cup fresh cilantro (or parsley, dill, etc.)
- 2 Tbsp. lime juice (about 1 lime)
- Salt to taste
- Other possible additions: jalapeno, bell pepper, grilled corn, etc.
Dice cucumber, halve/quarter tomatoes, and finely dice red onion.
Roughly chop cilantro, stems removed.
Rinse and drain garbanzo beans.
Peel avocados and remove pits. Dice into medium chunks.
Place all ingredients in a bowl. Add lime juice and salt. Lightly toss.
I like to let it sit for about 15-20 minutes so the flavors blend a bit before eating. You can also cover and refrigerate until ready to eat. (It's best served the same day otherwise the avocados get a little creamy/mushy. We usually finish within 1-2 days.)
Avocado: This recipe works best with avocados that aren’t overly ripe so they don’t get too mushy.
Lime: Adjust the amount of lime juice to your liking. Or swap out the lime juice for lemon juice, white wine vinegar, etc.
