Ingredients

  • 5 medium avocados - halved, peeled, and pitted

  • 2 large cucumbers, ends trimmed

  • 4 medium Roma tomatoes

  • ¼ cup rice wine vinegar

  • ¼ cup Italian salad dressing

  • ¼ teaspoon dried oregano leaves

  • ¾ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, or to taste

  • ½ teaspoon sea salt, or to taste

Directions

  1. Cut avocados into wedges. Peel cucumbers, if desired, and cut into slices. Core tomatoes and cut into wedges. Transfer all to a bowl.

  2. Add vinegar, Italian dressing, oregano, pepper, and salt; mix until well combined. Taste and adjust seasonings.

Cook's Notes:

Avocados should be moderately smooth and not really firm. This way they will best expose that rich, buttery, nutty flavor.

I prefer thin cucumber slices with the skin still intact, but use a carrot or apple peeler on the outside prior to slicing to make a line all the way down lengthwise the cucumber, leaving just a bit of the skin. This will look nice when sliced.

Using rice vinegar produces a more Greek flavor. For an Italian style, use balsamic vinegar instead.
