Cucumber, Tomato, and Avocado Salad



Sometimes I like an alternative to a lettuce salad.  This salad had a very light dressing and tasted slightly sweet.  We made this on a night that I was making chicken burritos, so I also used it as a topping for the burrito too.

Ingredients

2 cucumbers, finely diced
2 tomatoes, finely diced
1 avocado, finely diced
1/4 cup feta cheese

Dressing Ingredients

2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 tablespoon  mayo
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon lime juice
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper

Combine dressing ingredients and whisk to blend.  Set aside.

Combine salad ingredients and then pour dressing on top and gently mix.  Refrigerate for 30 minutes to allow flavors to meld.  This is best eaten the first day, so if you have a small crowd, I'd recommend halving the recipe.
