This is an excellent post workout salad – it’s full of electrolytes for re-hydration, omega-3s to combat inflammation, and antioxidants to flush waste from your system. Additionally, eating tomatoes with a fat like avocados makes lycopene, the cancer fighting antioxidant found in tomatoes, more bioavailable and easily assimilated by our bodies. Amazing!

5 plum tomatoes, quartered

3 Persian cucumbers, halved and thinly sliced

1 avocado, pitted and sliced lengthwise

¼ red onion, peeled and thinly sliced

4 leaves basil, finely chopped

1 tbsp ground flax seed

3 tbsp olive oil
