  • 2 English cucumbers, thinly sliced
  • 1 large avocado, pitted, peeled, and sliced
  • 1/3 cup chopped green onions (about half a bunch)
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice (from approximately 1 medium lime)
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt (or 3/4 teaspoon table salt, adjust to taste)
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper


This recipe serves 4 as a side dish.


  1. Prepare the Vegetables: Start by thoroughly washing the cucumbers. Thinly slice the cucumbers and set them aside in a large salad bowl. Next, cut the avocado in half, remove the pit, and peel. Slice the avocado into thin pieces.
  2. Add Green Onions: Chop the green onions, including both the white and green parts, until you have about 1/3 cup. Add these to the bowl with the cucumbers.
  3. Dressing: In a small bowl, whisk together the fresh lime juice, extra virgin olive oil, sea salt, and black pepper. The dressing should be well emulsified, ensuring each ingredient is perfectly blended.
  4. Combine and Toss: Add the sliced avocado to the salad bowl with the cucumbers and green onions. Drizzle the dressing over the top and gently toss everything together, being careful not to break the avocado slices. The aim is to coat each slice lightly but thoroughly with the dressing.
  5. Serve: Serve the salad immediately to prevent the avocado from browning. If needed, you can squeeze a little extra lime juice over the top to add a touch of extra zest and to help preserve the color of the avocado.
