Avocado Cucumber Salad

The textures in this salad are fabulous: crunchy cucumber paired with soft, creamy avocado. It doesn't keep well. It is possible to finish up a serving the following day, but it's better on the day you make it. There won't be many leftovers, I promise. And, as an added bonus, it takes about 10 minutes to throw together!
