Garden Week: Avocado, Cucumber Tomato Salad

This is a very simple salad recipe I have from my mother-in-law. We love to make it during the summer with garden tomatoes (and this year with garden cucumbers from our neighbors). It is quick, easy, and delicious!

Avocado Cucumber Tomato Salad

1/4 tsp grated lemon zest
1/4 c lemon juice
1 TBSP white wine vinegar
1 c vegetable oil
1 1/2 lbs vine ripened tomatoes, chopped
2 cucumbers peeled, seeded and chopped
3 avocados, chopped

In a bowl whisk together zest, lemon juice, vinegar, salt and pepper to taste. Then whisk in oil, whisking until dressing is a milky liquid.  Put tomatoes, cucumbers and avocados in 3 separate bowls and toss with dressing. serve separately or on a platter divided into sections. Can be prepared 2 hours ahead and chilled.

I actually just mix everything together, and it works great that way too!
