"Not-so-Dumb" Salad Recipe with Cucumbers, Tomatoes, Onions, Avocado, and Balsamic Vinegar

Uses: tomatoes, basil, red onions,
You will also need: cucumbers, avocado, lemon juice, balsamic
Description: "So when a reader from Hawaii named Lisa sent me her recipe for "dumb salad" and said it was something she made often, I was interested. Lisa discovered this combination when she was going out of town and needed to use what was on hand, and I promise you, this salad idea that combines cucumbers, tomatoes, onion, avocado, and balsamic vinegar is not dumb at all! Of course, only make this when you have fresh flavorful tomatoes, but I loved the combination of flavors, accented with just a little good sea salt and some coarse ground black pepper. And I also love the idea of a salad with no added oil except the "good fat" from the avocado."
