You need two main ingredients: cucumber and avocado.

Cucumber and Avocado

All you need to do is peel, chop your cucumber and avocado and place in a bowl. Now, I had to peel the cucumber because I used regular cucumber whose skin is quite thick. I used a potato peeler to get a nice thin peel.

However if you use English cucumbers with light crispy skin, then no need to peel. Just chop them up.

Once the cucumber and avocado are chopped and placed in the bowl, you drizzle the dressing on top. Perhaps the mayonnaise dressing is my most favorite part of this recipe.

You only need mayo, freshly squeezed lime juice and some honey. Mix them all together and what you get is a creamy, slightly tangy, slightly sweet, to-die-for mayonnaise dressing. Drizzle the dressing over the Cucumber Avocado Salad and weep for joy.

Then toss to combine all the ingredients and serve. To make this Cucumber Avocado Salad even better, place in the fridge for about an hour before serving.

It’s so simple just like my Cucumber Mango Salad yet so delicious. This Cucumber Avocado Salad is fresh, crunchy, creamy, tangy, slightly sweet and a pure delight in my mouth!

The crunchiness of the cucumber and the creaminess of the avocado is such an epic combo! Try this simple salad, guys. Sometimes simple is the best.

Recipe Notes

1. I like keeping this salad simple but you could add about a tablespoon of chopped red onion if you wish. You could also add green leafy vegetables (like lettuce, spinach or kale) to it and serve.

2. Adjust the dressing according to your taste. If you like it sweeter, add more honey/sugar. If you like it tangier, add more lime juice.
