Hands down one of the best gluten-free lunches you’ll have.
Serves: 2

  • 1 medium sized cucumber
  • 1 sweet red apple
  • 1/2 red onion
  • 1 ripe avocado (soft to the touch)
  • 3 tbsp raw apple cider vinegar
  • Sea salt and black pepper

  1. In a large mixing bowl, place half of the avocado
  2. Mash the 1/2 avocado until smooth and creamy
  3. Add 3 tbsp of raw apple cider vinegar to the avocado and mix well
  4. Peel and deseed the cucumber (just peel it, and cut it length wise. Scoop out the seeds with a spoon).
  5. Chop the cucumber into bite sized pieces
  6. Chop the apple into bite sized pieces
  7. Finely chop the red onion
  8. Chop the remaining 1/2 avocado
  9. Add the cucumber, apple, red onion and avocado to the avocado and vinegar dressing
  10. Add 3 pinches of sea salt and two pinches of black pepper
  11. Mix everything in the bowl thoroughly

You want the mixture to taste tangy. So, if it’s not tangy enough, just drizzle a little bit more raw apple cider vinegar onto the mixture, and mix thoroughly, again.
