Pear-Cucumber-Tomato-Avocado Salad

I honestly didn't plan on making something brand spanking new for dinner tonight, and I also didn't plan on it turning into such a simple and tasty success that I would want ever-so-badly to share it with you all. But I did, and it did! 
The funny thing about this Salad is that I practically gave out the complete recipe in the Title of this post, so hows about I finish the details right now...
Pear-Cucumber-Tomato-Avocado Salad
Try to keep everything in this salad fairly uniform in size when chopping.
1 large Cucumber - peeled and chopped
2 ripe Pears (I used Bartlett) peeled and chopped
1 small basket of sweet Cherry Tomatoes - sliced in half (mine were from the Farmers Market)
2 Avocados - chopped
In a large mixing bowl combine the above ingredients, and proceed to add the following:
2 Tbsp Lemon Juice
Sea Salt & Cracked Pepper to taste
Toss evenly! The rest of the magic in this salad happens when you let it sit for about a half hour in the fridge to marinade. Amazingly simple and amazingly good! 
Enjoy this salad on a bed of greens or as is. 
For those of you wondering what else was on my Dinner plate, I also enjoyed 
Leek/Broccoli/Cauliflower Risotto from this post (I didn't have fresh leek though, so I subbed it for white onion).



  1. Looks yummy!

  2. Mmmm I made this tonight and hubby and I both loved it. The flavours are simple and delicate which is what I enjoy.
    Good one, thanks for sharing.
