I have a lime tree and I try to use lime in many dishes. Lime chicken, lime salads, Lime pies, cookies and so on. This lime salad had a nice crunch and a little hint of hot jalapeno chili. Cucumbers and avocado cool the hot jalapeno.
2 Persian cucumbers sliced
1 small onion ( chopped and marinated in juice of 1/2 lemon )
2 avocados cut cubes
1 tomato diced
1/2 Lime juice
1 lemon juice
1 honey orange juice’( any orange )
hand full cilantro
1 1/2 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 green onion diced
1 jalapeno diced

Mix in the onionsinto the greens, adding olive oil, toss lighty and mix well,

Salads do not have to be boring or served with store salad dressing. Fruit juices and chili, herbs and spice can create a nice natural salad dressing.
