Easy summer salads are perfect for lunch and come in clutch for a dinner side dish.  Typically I like to eat lighter through the summer and look my best. However this year I am pregnant all damn summer so I followed up my Healthy Cucumber Salad with Tomatoes, Avocado & Chickpeas with homemade blueberry pie for dessert, haha! 

This week I have been grilling outdoors and preparing easy and delicious salads for our meals. I love this dish for lunch with a side of grilled chicken, but the family likes it as a dinner side. So, in my opinion, that’s a win! Whenever my kids eat their veggies I am one happy mama! Healthy Cucumber Salad with Tomatoes Avocado & Chickpeas uses minimal ingredients and is perfect to serve on the side at dinner time, we enjoyed ours with some grilled tri-tip and oven-baked potatoes, yum! 

Because this recipe uses avocado I don’t recommend it as a leftover, its best eaten fresh. If you are making it for 1 or 2 people I recommend you cut the recipe in half that way you don’t have food waste.
