I was lucky enough to have two weeks of fairly decent summer when I was in Sweden in August. So I seized the opportunity to cook as many summery dishes I could think of. This delicious salad is cool and soothing – perfect with a BBQ after a day at the beach. But just as nice now in the beginning of autumn when we can’t quite let go of summer just yet.

Avocado and cucumber salad, serves 4
Adapted from Smitten Kitchen’s recipe.
1/2 cucumber, washed and chopped into chunks
1-2 spring onions, thinly sliced
1 large avocado, pitted and diced
2 tbsp mayonnaise (homemade or Hellman’s)
1/2 lime, juice only
hot sauce (I used Tabasco)
chopped coriander or parsley to garnish
Combine cucumber, spring onions and avocado in a bowl. Whisk together mayo, lime and seasonings, adjusting to taste. Drizzle (or in my case, mix) salad with dressing and garnish with herbs.
