What Makes This Recipe So Good

Avocados – Buttery smooth with a mellow flavor, avocados are perfect as the base for this flavorful salad.
Red onion – Crispy, crunchy, and lightly sweet, red onion is still astringent and gives a nice tang to go with the mellow avocado and sweet tomatoes.
Cherry tomatoes – Juicy and bright, cherry tomatoes have a bit more concentrated flavor than their larger cousins.
Lime juice – A splash of citrus not only gives a pop of flavor, but also helps the avocado from turning brown immediately.
Cilantro – The leaves of the coriander plant, cilantro is lightly citrus-flavored and is the perfect herb for enhancing the vegetables of this salad.
Cucumber – Optional, but we love the extra crunch and light sweetness cucumber addes.
