cucumber and avocado salad

Do you ever get something new– a kitchen tool or gadget or a new ingredient– and then constantly find ways to use it? Well, I recently got a fancy schmancy new paring knife and wow! a sharp knife really makes a huge difference in the kitchen. I love my new knife and am constantly using this versatile tool as I prep and cook my way round the kitchen. I also ordered some Primal mayo, made with wholesome organic ingredients and without sugar, gluten, dairy, soy or canola.

So when I came across this recipe for a cucumber and avocado salad on Smitten Kitchen, I knew it would be a perfect recipe to make with both my new knife and my new mayo. And now I’m sharing it on the blog. Win-win-win.
