Tomato, Avocado and Cucumber Summer Salad – #SundaySupper

 Tomato, Avocado and Cucumber Summer Salad

Do you have Sunday meals with your family? Sunday dinner was an important meal at my parent’s house when I was growing up, and It is a very important meal at my Spanish in-laws house. Both sets of parents, mine and my husband’s, knew their kids had work, social obligations, sports activities, school committees, outside interests and a myriad of other things that come up during the week that can keep them from having regular week night dinners with the family, but Sunday supper was different.

Generally, Sunday is the day before people go back to their weekly activities of school and work and, let’s face it, there’s not a whole lot going on. So there weren’t any good reasons why you couldn’t be at home with the family for a homemade family meal. And in our families there were chores, too. Someone was appointed to set the table, another to clear it, and another the do the dishes. This schedule rotated so you wouldn’t be stuck doing the unwanted task of washing the dishes. We didn’t care for the chores too much, but having dinner with the whole family left me with a lot of good memories.

Isabel Laessig, from Family Foodie, believes that the Sunday supper is a time and place to nurture the family members and she’s so passionate about it that she started a movement called the Sunday Supper Movement. She’s got other bloggers on the bandwagon with her and now the movement reaches 1.5 million followers with the recipes posted from the participating bloggers. You’ll find the recipes tweeted, and posted on Facebook, Pinterest and Instagram.

This week the tasks for the bloggers was to come up with a recipe that used no more than 5 ingredients. I wanted to share this tomato, avocado and cucumber summer salad with you because it can be made in less than 15 minutes and it’s so delicious. I had a variation of it for the first time at Zeytin’s Deli, next to Bryant Park in NYC. It’s perfect for a hot summer day!
