(upbeat music) – Hey everyone, it’s Natasha
of natashaskitchen.com. You’ll notice today I’m in a new space, read more about that in
the description below. We’re gonna get right into this. Today I’m putting together
my very favorite ingredients to make an absolutely delicious salad. It’s definitely a reader favorite. Make this salad once and
you’ll make it again and again. We start out by chopping a
pound of fresh roma tomatoes. This salad is really good
with store-bought ingredients but just wait until you try
homegrown tomatoes, yum. If your cucumber twirling
ends better than mine, let me know, mine may have
ended up on the floor. You’re gonna slice up one
whole English cucumber. The red onion just gives this salad an amazing pop of color
and flavor, don’t skip it. Because we love avocado, we make sure there’s plenty of it in here. Check out this easy method of pitting and slicing an avocado. (upbeat music) And in it goes, like I
said, lots of avocado. Adding fresh cilantro just
makes this salad come alive. And if you’re not too keen on cilantro, you can use dill and
we’ll still be friends. Now the dressing for
this salad is super easy. A generous drizzle of
extra virgin olive oil, about two tablespoons
of fresh lemon juice, which really keeps the
avocado from browning. And we finish it off with a
little bit of black pepper and a teaspoon of salt. Just toss everything to combine and that’s really all there is to it. Here’s where things get
exciting, the taste test. I like to make sure I get
a little bit of everything in each bite. Here we go. (moans loudly) If I had one word to describe this, it would be fresh. This salad is delicious. I love how the avocado makes
it a little bit creamy, and then the other
crisp veggies, mm mm mm. Little bit of freshness
for summer for you guys. If you enjoyed this recipe, give me a thumbs up below. Make sure to subscribe
