This cucumber avocado salad is full of fresh, delicious ingredients perfect for a summer bbq, or a tasty side to any meal!
You might be wondering why this avocado cucumber salad is called a Shudderwock Salad, well it’s because you will want to make this again, and again, and again, and again… I think you get the point!
The Shudderwock card from Hearthstone is well known for its repeating battlecry abilities and since it has this awesome effect, I thought it would be perfect for this cucumber salad with avocado- because who wouldn’t want to repeat this! Plus as silly as it sounds, the colors of the salad kind of match the Shudderwock! Win!

Avocado Cucumber Salad
This simple salad is a quick and easy side dish that I love to throw together all the time! I last made it for my family when they came to visit (they came all the way from northern CA to visit me in NM! It made my heart so happy!). They loved it! I opted to make it without onions since one of my family members doesn’t like them, but when I make it just me and my husband- bring on the onions! It’s tossed in a olive oil and lemon juice as the dressing and has yummy cilantro and tomato added to it! The flavors in this salad are delicious!
How to Make Cucumber Avocado Salad:
- Peel cucumber and chop into ½ inch chunks
- Dice tomatoes and avocados
- Cut up onion if using
- Chop up cilantro
- Put everything in a bowl and add lemon juice and olive oil
- Sprinkle with salt and pepper
This is truly a super easy recipe that won’t disappoint! It’s healthy, flavorful and delicious! Give it a try! If you have leftovers, store them in an airtight container so the avocado doesn’t turn brown. I would eat this within a day of making it (which won’t be hard to do!).
Do you know how to cut an avocado?
Simply slice along the middle all the way around the pit. Twist the avocado open exposing the pit in one half. Remove the pit either by using a spoon or using a sharp knife. Then using a knife cut the avocado meat into the desired chunks/slices without cutting the skin. Then using a spoon simply scoop out the tasty avocado chunks!
