Summer is in full swing, so be sure to take full advantage of the beautiful produce that is currently in season. My easy and quick Tomato Cucumber Salad is one of my summertime favorite. I love heading to my local farmer’s market and stocking up on fresh tomatoes and other veggies straight from the garden.

Tomato cucumber salad

This recipe includes, juicy grape tomatoes, sliced cucumber, chopped avocado, and diced red onions all drenched in olive oil,red wine vinegar and seasoned with oregano, basil, salt and pepper. This dish pairs so well with grilled chicken, steak, pork chops, and BBQ.

How long will this Tomato Cucumber Salad last in the fridge?

Due to the avocado, I would try to consume immediately or within a couple of days. If you keep it in the fridge any longer you have a risk of the avocados turning brown.

If you are wanting to prep this for meals during the week, simply make this recipe and omit the avocado. Before serving, add the avocado to the salad and combine well with a spoon. This salad is perfect served with a juicy chicken breast and really makes for a flavorful lunch during a busy week.

    This recipe was delicious! I saw you make it last week as part of your meal prep on Instagram stories and I knew I had to try it. I usually don’t like “fresh” tomatos, only cooked tomatos. But you’ve converted me! Every bite of this was amazing! I only made enough for me and my lunches for the week but my kids have been begging me to share it. You know it’s good when your kids are begging for it! I’ll be adding this into my regular lunch rotation.

      Absolutely a game changer when the kiddos want what mom’s eating. Thanks so much Kate for the kind words of support.

  2. Vanessa says:

I'm super excited to partner with @pepcid so I can enjoy all the spicy foods that I want, like this Cheeseburger with Jalapeno Bacon Aioli. Spicy foods typically cause heartburn for my husband and I, but PEPCID Complete always saves the day because its starts to work in seconds and controls acid all day or all night. Check out my recipe below and head to Pepcid.com to purchase. #EatConfidently
 
Jalapeno Bacon Aioli:
1 cup mayo
3 pieces cooked bacon, chopped
1 1/2 garlic cloves, peeled and crushed
1/2 jalapeno pepper with seeds removed (add the other half if you like it really spicy)
1 tsp lime juice
Salt & pepper to taste
Directions:
Combine everything in a mason jar and blend together with an immersion blender until combined. 
 
Burger:
1.5 lbs ground beef
1.5 tablespoons Worchestire sauce
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
6 slices pepper jack cheese
6 pieces lettuce
Jalapeño slices and crispy onions for topping 
Directions:
1. Heat a large cast iron skillet or grill to medium/high heat. Mix the meat in a large bowl with the seasoning and the Worchestire sauce. Form 6- 8 patties depending on how big you want them. 
2. Add 2 tablespoons avocado oil and cook the burger for 4 to 5 minutes per side. Top each burger with a slice pepper jack cheese in the last minute of cooking.
