This is the best kind of recipe for those on a low-carb diet or keto diet and perfect for a hot summer day because of the fresh ingredients used!
I'm all about easy when it comes to summer cooking. I want good food, with fresh ingredients, but I want it fast. I seem to be more busier having fun with my kids and friends and family in the summer than even homeschooling during the school year.
I love to entertain and I love keto salads so when I have my kids friends over I usually am also having the moms with them, which I love to do. When it's food by the pool on a hot day, even the kids love this cucumber avocado tomato salad.
They may just pick out the red onion, but otherwise it's a favorite around my house. Often, to make it a light lunch, I buy a rotisserie chicken and shred that right into this easy salad.
Paleo Cucumber Avocado Salad
Hearty salads that include healthy fats, is a great way to stay satiated and the best part is because it's a low-carb recipe it won't spike your blood sugar. This favorite salad recipe of ours has great flavors on it's own with or without the cheese.
But if you can have cheese, Asiago is a nice hard cheese that holds up well in the fridge for a few days even when mixed with the juicy tomatoes, creamy avocado, English cucumbers, fresh lemon juice and fresh cilantro.
If you're not a fan of asiago simply switch it out for cheddar, smoked fresh mozzarella, feta cheese or just leave it out. This refreshing salad is wonderful either way!
The base of the dressing is also simple. Feel free to change out the red wine vinegar with apple cider vinegar or white wine vinegar or just use more fresh lemon juice or fresh lime juice. Simple, fast, no one will complain when you serve this to them!
Basic Ingredients Needed
You need just a handful of ingredients to make this delicious side dish salad;
A perfectly ripe avocado, a fresh crisp regular cucumber or English cucumber, tomatoes, red onion or green onion and fresh cilantro but if you don't like cilantro you could also use fresh basil or fresh parsley.

My favorite salad. I make this same salad but I add Feta cheese. If I’m pressed for time, I use Zesty Italian dressing. My husband and boys devour it.
