You don't make friends with Salad! {Jill}

It's Salad Sunday and today we've got a great post from my little sister Jill from Envirocraftiness.  I should mention that she is headed out to Vancouver on WEDNESDAY! and I can't wait.  We'll be doing SO MUCH CRAFTING-you're gonna be overloaded with amazing goodness.  BUT until then, enjoy!

Hey all you Try to Keep Uppers! This is Leslie's little sister Jill from Envirocraftiness!  I've been on a grain/gluten-free-paleo kind of diet, and this salad was one of my experiments along that path.  Thanks to my big sis for inviting me over here (although I handle the technical stuff for her, so really I can hop over whenever I like!) I'll probably be back with more salads later in the summer! Enjoy! 

This salad is pretty much an original creation.  It all came about because I was at work, thinking, what do I want for supper?  The answer was "a steak and eating an avocado with a spoon."  And then I remembered I'm a grownup, and probably shouldn't eat an avocado with a spoon.  SO I created this salad instead!

What you need:
2                ripe avocados, chopped
1/2             English cucumber, chopped
1                small roma tomato, diced
                  crumbled feta cheese (adjustable to personal preference)
                  balsamic vinegar (adjustable to personal preference)

Toss all your veggies and cheese into a bowl.  
Pour balsamic vinegar over all of it, and stir!

Serve up with a steak done your favorite way! We still had a solid wall of snow blocking the BBQ when I made this, so I settled for pan-fried (is that what you call it?!) with some Montreal steak spice.
