Tomato Cucumber Avocado Salad Recipe

Tomato Cucumber Avocado Salad Recipe
Heather Nicholds, C.H.N.

This tomato cucumber avocado salad is a super simple way to enjoy some fresh vegetables in the summer. It’s an easy vegan recipe that’s kind of like a cross between fresh salsa and guacamole.

Getting some raw garlic into your diet is a great idea, since garlic in anti-inflammatory and especially powerful when raw. As we enter into the warmer months, higher temperatures can often aggravate joint inflammation.

If you’re not a fan of cilantro (like me), try it paired with this simple dressing – the coconut oil helps neutralize whatever it is in the fresh cilantro that disagrees with some of our taste buds. If you really can’t handle the cilantro though, just substitute for another fresh herb, like parsley or basil.
