In this blog, I wanted to share a recipe for some summertime Tomato Avocado And Cucumber Salad I made over the weekend.
I had some garden fresh vegetables on hand including tomatoes, onions and cucumbers, so I thought I would add an avocado to the mix and make a healthy summertime salad. The mix proved not only be tasty, but included some healthful vitamins, including vitamin C and K, as well as some other healthful nutrients. It also included some good fat from the avocados, which our body needs.
If you have some vegetables available from your garden, or have some on hand from your local farmers market, you might want to give this recipe a try.

In a large bowl, combine the chopped vegetables.
Add the sunflower oil and salt & pepper to taste. Serve alone, or as a side salad with other items.
