  • 2 tablespoons minced yellow or red onion
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 5 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 5 tablespoons white distilled vinegar (or lime juice, to taste) 
  • 1 avocado, diced (optional)
  • 1/8 teaspoon stevia or 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • Lots of salt and freshly black pepper, to taste


  1. Toss together in a large bowl the cucumbers, bell peppers, cilantro, onion, and garlic.
  2. Pour the oil and vinegar over the top and season with lots of salt and pepper and the stevia. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
