Cucumber, Avocado, Lime, & Scallion Salad
Crisp cucumber, smooth avocados and the bite of fresh lime make a wonderful combination. This is simple to prepare and best made at the last minute.
3 ripe Hass avocados
¼ cup chopped scallions (white and green parts)
Juice of 2 limes
¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil
Freshly cracked black pepper
Peel the cucumbers, slice each lengthwise, and halve the slices. Cut out the seeds on each slice; then cut the cucumber crosswise into half-moons. Put in a ceramic or glass serving bowl.
Cut each avocado in half, remove the pit, and with a small spoon, scoop out the flesh, and palace in the bowl with the cucumbers.
Add the scallions, lime juice, and olive oil, toss to combine, and season with salt and cracked pepper. Serve immediately.
