Cucumber & Avocado Salad

One afternoon I had been thinking about a soba noodle recipe and decided to make it. Focused and excited, I spent a good two hours chopping vegetables and carefully following the recipe. It was going to be great. An extra cucumber and avocado were lying around so I threw together a side salad.

I thought the noodles turned out pretty good. Without question the boys would want seconds so I offered a second bowl and they replied, “The noodles were good, but do you have any more salad?”

Really? The afterthought salad thrown together in under five minutes?

Ok, I admit, it was surprisingly good. Tangy, creamy, and crunchy. Here it is:
