Staying Cool This Summer


Staying cool in the summer is always something we all try and achieve but not matter how much time we spend in the Air Conditioning or by the fan it's hard to beat the heat. Luckily for you, we at Horne Insurance Agency have a few recipes we'll be sharing this summer to help our clients beat the heat! 

Tomato, Cucumber, Avocado Salad 


  1. Chop tomatoes into a medium dice. If using cherry tomatoes, cut in half. Add to a bowl.
  2. Peel and seed one cucumber and dice. Add to bowl.
  3. Remove pit, dice avocado and using a spoon scoop out the avocado from the peel. Add to bowl.
  4. Cube feta and add to bowl.
  5. Add minced red onion and minced parsley to bowl.
  6. Whisk together olive oil, red wine vinegar and black pepper – pour over salad.
  7. Toss gently so the feta and avocado don’t break up. Serve immediately.
  8. If refrigerating – keep the avocado aside and add before serving.
