Tomato, Avocado and Watermelon Summer Salad

by Natures Garden | Other recipes by this author

Instead of mixing up that same green salad for dinner, try this colorful combination of tomatoes, avocado and watermelon. Granted, the combination appears a bit off kilter but you'll be pleasantly surprised how well these produce stars bring out the best of each player. Adding a sprinkle of feta cheese brings a touch of saltiness to the party. Make this salad at the peak of summer when all the ingredients have the brightest, most intense flavors.

  • 1 small English, M&M Plant Farms Field cucumber, or Wholesum Family Farms Slicing cucumber, peeled, seeded, and cut into 3/4-inch cubes
