There are truly fewer things I love more in the summer than a delicious cucumber salad! They’re so refreshing and crisp, and they just taste like a bowl full of summer!

A cucumber salad can be as simple as just cucumbers, onions and dressing like in my creamy cucumber salad, it can be perfectly paired with juicy ripe tomatoes in a cucumber tomato salad or tossed with fresh dill and creamy avocado in this dish!

Most of my cucumber salads tend to have a creamier dressing or a sour cream/Greek yogurt base so this fresh dilly dressing is a welcome change!

Cucumber Avocado Salad is a summertime favorite with crisp cucumbers, rich creamy avocado and fresh summery dill all tossed in a simple lemon dressing.

While any variety of cucumber will work in this recipe, I prefer to use a long English cucumber (or seedless cucumber).  They tend to have a thinner skin and less seeds making them the perfect addition to a salad.  You can peel the cucumbers but there really is no need to in this recipe.  Since we usually make this recipe and eat it right away, we leave both the seeds and skin intact.

I cut my avocado into cubes and immediately toss it with a little bit of lemon juice; this keeps it from getting brown (and adds lots of flavor).  Since this recipe really relies on the flavors of fresh summery ingredients, freshly squeezed lemon juice is best as the bottled juices can sometimes have a bitter after taste.

Depending on the size of your cucumbers and avocados, you may not need all of the dressing so I mix it in a mason jar and just add a little bit a time.  If you happen to have extra, it’s perfect over a tossed salad and will last about a week in the fridge!

Everyone always loves this Cucumber Avocado Salad! It's a summertime favorite with crisp cucumbers, rich creamy avocado and fresh summery dill all tossed in a simple lemon dressing.

I love the flavor (and little bit of color) red onion adds to this Cucumber Avocado Salad.  If you don’t have red onion, you can certainly add in white onions. The onions with the white papery skin (not the typical yellow skinned onion) are much sweeter and milder.  I usually start the recipe by soaking my onion in cold water while I prepare the cucumbers and avocado.  Soaking in cold water takes a little bit of the “bite” out of the onion making it a bit milder and the perfect accompaniment for this dish!
