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:

(AD) With the back-to-school season right around the corner, life can get pretty busy. I'm here to help with a quick and easy lunchbox idea featuring @StarKistCharlie Hot Buffalo Style Tuna Creation Pouch. If you are not a fan of spicy, don't fear, these little pouches come in 23+ varieties and you can find them in the tuna aisle in the grocery store or online. Most of the pouches have 10g+ lean protein per single-serve pouch and 110 calories or less. I love serving these with my favorite fruits and veggies to make them a complete lunch or snack. These pouches are also great for a post-workout protein-filled snack. Just tear it open and eat straight from the pouch. #EverydayGoals

Every year I let the girls pick out a theme for their birthday cakes and I try to make it magical. This year Eloise wanted a chocolate cake with watercolor buttercream along with pink and teal macarons. It turned out better than I imagined and Eloise absolutely love it!!!

🧁For the buttercream, I used my recipe that is located on my site. You can also find it in my profile

🍰As for the cake, I  used my box cake mix hack. This is seriously my favorite way to make a cake because it tastes straight from the bakery. See the hack below

✨Follow the box cake mix instructions but with these changes 
Tip 1 Add one more egg (or add 2 if you want it to be very rich)
Tip 2 Use melted butter instead of oil and double the amount
Tip 3 Use milk instead of water
Tip 4 if using for cupcakes fill 3/4 of cupcake liners with the mix.
✨Bake according to the box and remove it two minutes early and let them sit for a couple of minutes in the tin. ✨Remove and allow them to cool

🍓I used Bonne Maman Strawberry Jam for the middle
