A bright, colorful salad loaded with healthy and seasonal summer vegetables. I love to serve this as a side dish to keep things light and bring a pop of color to a meal. It would be delicious alongside a protein and some toasty bread (and maybe even some cold, creamy cheese). This salad is certain to take your summer grill plans to the next level.
Serving: 2 larger entree salads or 4 sides
2 heaping cups of cherry tomatoes, halved
1 Hass avocado, diced
1 cucumber, peeled and chopped
1/4 cup Feta cheese
1 tablespoon parsley, chopped
1 tablespoon mint, chopped
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
- Combine tomatoes, avocado, cucumber, feta cheese, parsley, and mint in a large bowl.
- In a separate, smaller bowl, whisk together the olive oil and red wine vinegar. Add salt and pepper to taste.
- Toss salad gently with dressing while making sure to keep everything (especially the avocado) intact.
- Garnish with more parsley and mint.
