It has only five ingredients—anyone can make it!
The other day, a friend told me that many guys want to go raw, but have a hard time finding simple recipes with easy-to-find ingredients. Let’s face it—only a few of us use Irish Moss, and how many more even know what it is? This salad is a pretty hefty, but refreshing dish complete with two fats—from the avocados and olives.
While it makes a good side dish, I’ve had it as a complete meal many times, especially when there wasn’t much time to prepare anything. I have a section in my website called “Da Power-Five,” featuring meals using only five ingredients, so no more excuses to be deliciously healthy!
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Yield: 1-2 servings
1 cup cucumbers, cubed
1 cup tomatoes, cubed
1 cup avocados, cubed
1 cup olives, cubed
1 tablespoon olive oil
*Optional black pepper
Mix all ingredients together in a bowl and serve.
Note: If you are not going to eat this salad right away, save the avocado until last so it doesn’t turn brown.
