Do you ever find yourself scouring Pinterest for something to eat? I do. When I’m feeling unmotivated, or nothing sounds good, or all I really want is a grilled ham and Swiss cheese samich…but I will not give in to laziness! So I search, and search, and sometimes search some more until I find the holy grail of salads…because, hello bacon! In the interest of honesty, sometimes I just end up eating an apple and almonds, which is totally fine too.
Today, however, I was munching on a cucumber thinking about what I’d make for lunch when a thought came to me. Ford really likes cucumber soup! So I looked that up and found some great inspiration! I didn’t end up going that route though, because…bacon…and avocado. (You can expect to see cucumber soup here soon…hehe)
The inspiration I did end up going with was a cucumber salad. Inspiration is just what it was because I changed it, but loved the idea of cucumber salad!
Creamy Cucumber Salad
The next time I make this I’d like to have a mixture of red and yellow tomatoes for more color. Bell pepper would also be a great addition, for flavor and a pop of color! Also please note that I made this amount as a single serving. If you paired it with a small sandwich it could easily be two servings.
- 1/4 Cucumber
- 1 Avocado
- Handful of Cherry Tomatoes Sliced in quarters
- 2 Slices of Cooked Chopped Bacon (Whole30 Approved)
- 2 T Mayo (Recipe I use)
- Juice of Lime (I used 1/2 my limes were really big!)
- Pinch of Garlic Powder
- Salt and Pepper to Taste
- Chop all the veggies you plan to use.
- Mix mayo with seasoning and lime juice to suit your taste.
- Gently fold dressing with veggies and bacon to combine.
- Enjoy…maybe share if you are feeling generous 🙂
I hope you like this quick lunch inspiration. As with all things it would be so easy to adjust to suit your own tastes, or those of you family. I hope you have a blessed week!
