What you’ll need is the following:

  • 1/2 cucumber
  • 2 large tomatoes
  • 1 avocado
  • 1/2 lime
  • 1 handful of parsley

For the dressing:

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • Salt & Pepper
  • 1 tsp of red vegan pesto*

* if available, it’s not crucial. You can substitute with a tbsp of apple cyder vinegar.

Chop up the tomatoes, avocado and cucumber into bite sized bits. Very finely chop the fresh parsley and throw everything together in a big salad bowl or a mixing bowl. Cut the lime in half and squeeze over the veggies.
Now add the oil, pesto/vinegar and salt and pepper to taste. I used red vegan pesto for my dressing but most vinegars will go well with this salad as a substitute.

I love to devour this salad with some artisan wholegrain bread and aubergine spread. But to be honest it tastes amazing with everything! Maybe some seed-packed crackers with hummus?
