This is a simple salad that can be put together really quick with ingredients that we usually have at home. The flavour is so fresh and is a great addition to a meal.
The freshness of the cucumber, the juicy tomatoes, creamy avocado and the little bit of heat from the red onion is a great combination. If you are not a fan of coriander, you can skip that or add cilantro instead. I add only a bit of coriander to give that hint of flavour without overpowering the whole thing.
The dressing is simple and adds great flavour.
This salad is very healthy and is a great way to eat something yum while being conscious of what goes into your body.

- Chop the cucumber, tomatoes and coriander leaves. Slice the onions and dice the avocado. Place them all in a bowl.
