CUCUMBER AVOCADO SALAD (Adapted from Smitten Kitchen)

This simple salad is so delicious. I made it recently at the beach with family and everyone RAVED about it – just a few ingredients so it takes minutes to prepare. It’s an easy side that’s green, healthy and crunchy – perfect for a hot day in the south watching football!

1 seedless cucumber, washed and chopped into chunks
1 scallion, thinly sliced
1 large avocado, pitted and diced
2 TBSP mayonaise (I always use Hellman’s)
Juice of half a lime, plus more to taste (~1 TBSP+)
Salt and hot sauce (I used tabasco), to taste

Combine cucumber, scallions and avocado in a bowl. Either whisk together mayo, lime and seasonings and then drizzle over the salad. OR throw everything in a bowl and toss, adjusting levels of salt and lime to taste.
