Using ingredients always found in my fridge, this is one heck of a salad…and of course, the more hot sauce the better (the girls had their own version).  Borrowed from Smitten Kitchen! – enjoy!

Cucumber and Avocado Salad

1 English cucumber, halved, seeds mostly scraped out, and cut into bite-sized chunks

2 green onions, minced

1 large avocado, pitted and diced


2 T. mayonnaise

1 T. freshly squeezed lime juice (half a lime)

salt AND Sriracha to taste

chopped cilantro or parsley for garnish

Add the cucumber, onions and avocado to a salad bowl and in a separate small bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, lime juice, salt and Sriracha, making sure to adjust as required for taste.

Drizzle the salad with the dressing, sprinkle with your herb garnish of choice and serve it up – I already know that every time I prepare this, I will just have to double it.  It’s the perfect quick weeknight side to just about any protein on the barbecue.
