Sticking to a very-green-theme, we decided to highlight this Refreshing Cucumber and Avocado Salad courtesy of by CHLOE. Chef Contributor, Jenné Claiborne, that will keep any party spread fresh + light.

If it ever decides to get warmer outside / turn into springtime on the east coast…this is the perfect recipe that brings out seasonal and crisp flavors and textures. It is the most refreshing salad, appetizer, or side dish – it actually makes for a delicious topping for vegan burgers (especially these Double Drive-Through Veggie Burgers).

The creaminess from the avocado, meets the sweetness of the peach, mingles with the sharpness of the red onion, dances with the sweet herbal aroma of dill. Add the acids, a little heat, and a dash of sea salt, and you’ve got yourself a stellar creation!
