Avocado Pineapple Cucumber Salad recipe

Hello everyone!

I am all about assembly only food in the summer.  Turning on the oven and cooking complicated food this time of year almost seems foreign to me.  It’s too hot and I don’t want to spend that much more time indoors.  I love creating dishes that require only mixing and chopping like my Fresh White Bean Salad, Strawberry Watermelon Cucumber Salad or even Rainbow Chickpea Salad.  It’s actually surprising the yummy dishes you can make without actually cooking.

My Avocado Pineapple Cucumber Salad recipe is one of those recipes.  You don’t have to get out any fancy kitchen equipment or even turn the oven on.  All you need is a few fresh foods, a cutting board, knife, and a bowl.  The result is an addictively delicious summer salad you’ll want to enjoy all season long.

Here’s why you’ll love my Avocado Pineapple Cucumber Salad recipe…

The idea for this no-cook summer side dish actually came from my love and addiction to salsa.  I love fruit salsa (hello, Pineapple Salsa) so much that honestly, I want to eat it with a spoon sometimes.

Since salsa flavors are so dreamy… I thought it would work perfectly as a side dish too!  Turns out it does and you’ve got to try it too.

Instead of the itty-bitty pieces, you expect in salsa, I decided to chop my veggies in larger chunks.  I added cool cucumber and rich avocado to round it out.

This delightful summer dish is seasoned with a generous helping of fresh cilantro, lime juice, and salt.  Not much different than your favorite salsa.

The difference is you can actually eat this with a fork or spoon and no one will judge you. 🙂

    This trio sounds like a delicious combo! I am digging it! Sadly, I cannot consume pineapple, but that doesn’t mean I can’t make it as a crowd-pleasing dish for a party!
