My husband and I ate this entire batch of salad in one sitting, paired with roasted red potatoes and grilled shrimp skewers. I shoveled most of the salad into my mouth before I remembered the shrimp and potatoes on my plate; mmming and smiling all the way through. We were both smitten.

I brought this salad to my parents house yesterday and everyone loved it! This is definitely going into the regular rotation all summer long. Think: homegrown cucumbers and tomatoes :).

    FYI – many people outside the USA and Spanish-speaking world will know cilantro as coriander. Reply

    I’m making this today. How do you ensure the avocado doesn’t change colour between the time you make the salad and the time you serve it Reply

      Hi Ev, the lemon juice really helps to keep the avocados green. It’s also a good idea to cover the salad with plastic wrap directly onto the surface of the salad so there is as little air in the bowl as possible. I would add the salt only just before serving so it doesn’t cause the cucumbers or tomatoes to start getting juicy. I hope you love it! Reply
