Avocado and Tomato Salad

Avocado season is upon us and I like to to serve them up in as many ways as possible and at almost every meal! We have so many I end up freezing them - mashed with lemon juice so we have avocado all year round. This salad is fresh and tasty and can be served as a light lunch or an accompaniment to almost any main dish including pasta and fish.

It also makes a great starter!

4 cups avocado -- diced medium 2 cups cherry tomatoes or whole tomatoes chopped 2 cups cucumber -- peeled and diced medium 1 cup onion -- diced small 4 tablespoons fresh cilantro -- chopped 2 teaspoons fresh garlic -- minced 2 tablespoons lime or lemon juice 1/4 cup olive oil Salt and fresh black pepper to taste Gently toss ingredients together and serve on a bed of fresh lettuce. Yield: Serves 8-10
