A personal kitchen diary. I try new recipes and make notes on what works and what doesn't. Sometimes I can things, and sometimes I dry herbs. This is the story of my kitchen.

Avocado, Cucumber, and Tomato Salad

Avocado, Cucumber, and Tomato Salad
AKA What is in my fridge salad?
I had bought a bag of avocados at Sam’s club, and needed to use them.  I also wanted something to eat with the chili I was heating up for dinner.
I nosed around in my produce drawer and this is what I found

First was peeling, seeding, and chopping the cucumbers.

Then the tomatoes.
I scored the avocado halves in their peels, and scooped them out next.
There was a bag of frozen peppers in the freezer so I took out a jalapeño and seeded and diced it.  As always, use gloves when handling peppers!  I wasn’t sure how hot it would be, so initially I only added 1/2 the pepper, but later I added the rest.
I can never have too much cilantro!
For a dressing I took some sour cream, sprinkled in some lime juice, added some cumin, and some piment d’espellete.
And into the bowl it all went.  I did adjust the seasonings some after, adding more cumin, a bit of salt, and the rest of the jalapeños.
Super easy, no recipe, and very good.
