The other evening I was cooking my Italian Chicken Roll-Ups and I was looking for a side dish to serve with it. The chicken is pretty filling, so I wanted something light. This salad went perfectly with it – I was so pleased!

The colors are fabulous in this dish – you could serve it with any grilled meat or fish!

How to Make a Cucumber, Tomato and Avocado Salad

Make the dressing by adding extra virgin olive oil, red wine vinegar, garlic paste, dried oregano, salt and pepper to a bowl. Whisk together until fully combined. Set aside.

Slice the cucumber in half lengthways then cut into slices. Cut the tomatoes into quarters, and dice the avocado. Finally, slice the basil into thin strips and combine everything in a large bowl.

Note: If you are preparing this in advance, don't add the avocado at this stage. Even with the dressing it will go brown. Add it just before serving.

Add the dressing to the vegetables, and turn to coat. Transfer everything to a serving bowl.

Cover and store in the fridge until required, removing at least 10 minutes before serving (and adding the avocado if necessary!).
