Cucumber, Tomato & Avocado Salad

This is health month for me and I am doing all healthy stuff, at least cooking and eating healthy! I did a smoothie and a breakfast recipe earlier so I’ll share a great salad recipe today.

Salads are great, aren’t they? They fill you up, low on calorie, you can have as much as you want! And hey, all salads are not boring. You can enjoy it as a side or a main. I sometimes like some good salad as munching snack in the evening.
Today we are making wonders with three very simple ingredients – Cucumber, Tomato and Avocado! It's summers and these ingredients are perfect for the season! Crunchy Cucumber, Fresh Tomato and Buttery Avocado! Very easy and totally yum! Let’s get to know our Cucumber, Tomato & Avocado Salad a little better!


Cucumber, however boring it may sound, is a gift

It keeps you hydrated and flushes out your toxins.

It almost doesn’t have any calories and provides loads of vitamins and skin friendly minerals like magnesium, potassium.

Avocados on the other hand are a power house of dietary fiber, vitamin K, copper, folate, vitamin B6, potassium, vitamin E, and vitamin C

It also provides Alpha-linolenic acid (an omega-3 fatty acid) and oleic acid 

Tomatoes, I can't tell you how good they are specially for your skin!

We won’t use any mayo or fatty dressing for the salad!

You can totally skip the tabasco part, if you don’t like the heat in salads
If you want to have it as a main, add some diced tofu and up the protein quotient of the salad.

Enjoy a good healthy snack.

Until next time, Cheers!
