Black Bean, Avocado, Cucumber and Tomato Salad

I have been looking for lighter dinner options for the warm Summer months and came across this dish. Wow, this was so good! Chad (my where's the meat eater) loved it too. I paired with rotisserie chicken breast which I chilled the night before. I think next time, I might include warm pita bread with hummus and make little sammies. This would also be a great salad to bring to a party!

1 seedless cucumber; diced
2 Roma tomatoes (or home grown); diced
2 Haas avocados; diced
1- 15 ounce can black beans; drained and rinsed
2 tablespoons red onion; diced (I left this out because I forgot to buy one - but I didn't miss it)
2 tablespoons fresh cilantro;  minced
2 limes; juice of
Salt and pepper

Combine all ingredients and season with salt and pepper. Keep in fridge till ready to serve.
