This cucumber tomato avocado salad recipe is one of my absolute favorites. Hearty salads are a common theme in Eastern European cultures and growing up in a Russian family, we ate plenty of them, but not many with greens. I love my greens now, but I still enjoy a good, hearty salad like this one. When it’s healthy? Even better. When I can add avocado? Perfection! When it’s ready in 15 minutes? EASY! The hardest part? Deciding on what to call it… cucumber avocado salad, avocado tomato salad, cucumber tomato and avocado salad… it was hard to choose one version. So go with whatever title resonates with you, just make sure you try it out asap!
Throughout my childhood, cucumber tomato salad with lemon juice, olive oil, and some fresh dill and parsley was a staple in my mom’s kitchen. When I started making my own version of this common Russian salad, I knew I had to throw some Hass avocados in there! Because really, almost everything is better with avocado in it. I incorporate it into as much as I can – everything from lunch to salad to dessert.
This simple cucumber avocado salad has turned out to be one of my favorite salad recipes yet. If you love avocado salad recipes, I bet you’ll feel the same way about this one! It’s got crunch from the cucumbers, juicy ripe tomatoes, creamy avocado, and bright lemon juice and fresh herbs. The whole dish is delicious and so satisfying!
How To Make Cucumber Tomato Avocado Salad
This cucumber avocado salad takes just 15 minutes! Let me show you how easy it is to make.
First you’ll make the dressing. Simply whisk everything together in a small bowl, or use a dressing shaker.
Next you’ll need to chop your veggies and add them to a larger salad bowl.
Then drizzle the dressing over the veggies and toss to coat. That’s it!
Is Cucumber Tomato Salad Healthy?
Yes, this cucumber tomato and avocado salad is incredibly healthy! Let’s see. We’ve got veggies. Check. Healthy fats. Check. Bright flavors. Check. And it’s delicious so you’ll actually want to eat this healthy avocado tomato salad.
Net Carbs in Avocado
There are always a lot of questions about carbs and net carbs in avocados. A whole avocado has 17 grams carbs and 14 grams fiber, so a whole avocado has 3 grams net carbs. Wow! Most of the time we don’t eat an entire avocado at one time, but they are incredibly low carb.
Avocado Nutrition (per 1 avocado, according to USDA)
- 322 calories
- 29 grams fat
- 17 grams carbohydrates
- 14 grams dietary fiber
- 4 grams protein
I’m so happy to team up with The Hass Avocado Board (HAB) and American Heart Association (AHA) to help to encourage Americans to eat the daily recommended amounts of fruits and vegetables, and hopefully reduce deaths from cardiovascular diseases, stroke and diabetes.
How Long Does Cucumber Tomato Salad Last?
This cucumber tomato salad will last a day or two in the fridge, but it really is best fresh. The lemon juice in the dressing helps the avocado from browning to some extent, just not perfectly. I would recommend making up the salad and adding the avocado right before serving. This will help it stay fresh longer.
Can You Make Healthy Cucumber Avocado Salad Ahead?
Yes, you can make cucumber avocado salad ahead, but as I mentioned above, don’t add the avocado until you’re ready to serve it. So there are a few options.
You can mix up the dressing and have that ready to go. If you want to prep things further, chop the veggies and herbs and store in the fridge.
Or mix up the veggies (not the avocado!) and dressing and store in the fridge. When you’re ready to eat, simply fold the avocado into the salad.
