Gaby’s Cucumber Salad Recipe

The best cucumber salad I've ever had was made by Gaby. It is made with avocado and crisp cucumber tossed in a simple vinegar and vinegar dressing.

– 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil – 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar – 2 small-to-medium cloves garlic, pressed or minced – Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste – 1 ripe avocado, pitted and sliced or diced – 4 Persian cucumbers or 2 medium English cucumbers (12 ounces), thinly sliced – Optional additions: 1 to 2 cups arugula, ½ cup halved cherry tomatoes, and/or 1 to 2 chopped radishe


Step 1


Combine the garlic, olive oil, and balsamic vinegar in a medium bowl and whisk them together until they are completely combined.

Step 2

Use pepper and salt to season the food. Toss the avocado and cucumbers together in the bowl while they are still in the bowl.

Step 3

In the event that it is required, season with additional salt and pepper. Serve as soon as possible.
