Avocado and Tomato Salad - Easy and Delicious

This is a salad you can make quickly and nearly everyone I know loves it. I made a GIANT bowl on Sunday for about 20 people and it was gone in a few minutes.  Lime juice is good but lemon is nice as well.  You can add a chili or not - if you don't have grape or cherry tomatoes, use regular vine ripe tomatoes.  If you want a bit of grain, then some bulghur wheat (soaked) would be a nice addition.  Sumac, if you have some, would make it taste a bit different and more middle eastern.  Have fun with it.

If you enjoy fresh foods, you will not be disappointed.  It is pretty, delicious, fresh and appeals to all ages

4 cups avocados, diced medium
2 cups grape tomatoes or 2 cups cherry tomatoes
2 cups cucumbers, peeled and diced medium
1 cup red onion, diced small
4 tablespoons fresh cilantro, chopped
2 teaspoons fresh garlic, minced
2 tablespoons lime juice
1/4 cup olive oil
fresh black pepper
Lettuce (if you want) I think a jalapeño might be nice

Toss all ingredients in a bowl and top on a bed of lettuce (if desired)
Makes 8 servings
