Cucumber Salad With Avocado

This is an amazing slaw / salad.  It’s another one of Angela’s creations.  I added grated carrot, but mainly for color.  And I used cilantro and basil instead of mint, because I was way out in the country and the grasshoppers have eaten all the mint, so I used what I had.  I suppose some of the hoppers probably taste like mint, but…….I won’t finish that!  I will say it’s good with basil and cilantro, but it’s fabulous with mint.
