A Summery Salad


  • english cucumber peeled and diced

  • very ripe tomato seeded, and diced

  • roasted red pepper peeled, seeded, and diced

  • 1 small purple onion diced

  • 1 avocado diced

  • fresh mint leaf chopped

  • garlic minced (optional)

  • olive oil

  • red wine vinegar

  • lemon juice

  • salt & pepper

  • feta cheese or chèvre to serve with


  • 1.

    Toss the diced vegetables with the chopped mint.

  • 2.

    Season to taste at the last minute with olive oil, red wine vinegar, lemon juice, salt and pepper, and garlic.

  • 3.

    Scoop the salad into bib lettuce “boats,” and serve.


*There is no need to measure ingredients for a salad like this. My only advice is to wait until the last minute to dress the vegetables so they don't go soggy.
