If you love avocados, this is one of the best ways to eat them!

This avocado cucumber salad might also be an excellent way to try them again for those who do not like them, and maybe it will make a difference.

Avocados have always been one of my favorite fruits, but I wouldn’t say that’s the case for everyone. At least not for my daughter’s father. They’re one of those fruits he can’t stand, no matter how many new recipes you try with them!

But now on to today’s topic, the avocado cucumber salad. So I have to say that it’s one of the easiest salads to make.

You only need seven ingredients, which you can easily find, and it only takes 5 minutes to prepare or even less.

Ingredients to make avocado cucumber salad

Avocado: Use a half or whole avocado; if it is too tiny, peel it and dice it to add to your salad. 

Health benefits of avocados

Cucumber: Cucumbers are low in calories but contain many essential vitamins and minerals and have high water content. Therefore, they have many benefits, such as balanced hydration, regular digestion, and lowering blood sugar levels.

Red onion: I prefer red onions when it comes to salads. They have a perfect, distinctive, and pleasing purple and white color to add appeal to your salad. 

Tomatoes: If you read up on the nutritional benefits of tomatoes, you’ll find that they’re an excellent source of vitamin C, which we all know is essential for our health. So why not use them in this salad if you want to make sure that while you enjoy your avocado and cucumber salad, you are also doing something for your health!

Sweet corns: No doubt, adding sweet grains to a salad makes it even more delicious. Whether you use fresh corn kernels or canned corn kernels is up to you. But I can assure you that your salad will be good either way.

Olive oil: Studies have shown that olive oil may be the best choice for a salad dressing. But not only that, but it’s also one of the healthiest oils we can consume. A few tablespoons are enough to enjoy the taste and even the benefits of taking olive oil.

Pepper: A pinch of black pepper adds a little flavor to the avocado.
