Author Notes: This is the epitome of the perfect BBQ side dish; crisp crunchy cucumbers and sugar snap peas with heirloom tomatoes diced and beautifully dressing a decadent (guilt-free!) avocado and dill dressing. No mayo, no dairy, gluten-free, and completely DELECTABLE. Extra protein and flavor boost? Add 1 cup chickpeas, 1/2 large red pepper, zucchini/squash, and/or green beans.Stacy
