Cucumber Avocado Salsa

If there are two foods I have in our kitchen at all times, it's cucumbers and avocados. My kids love their cukes. They are just as likely to sit around munching on whole persian cucumbers for a snack as they are apples or bananas.

Many nights, I serve sliced cucumbers and cubes of avocado as individual side dishes at dinner, so I thought, why not mix them together, add a few fresh herbs and turn them into a bright salsa! It's a cool, refreshing
side dish that you can also serve alongside chips or even on top of fish or chicken on those warm nights when you want something nutritious and light but that also takes little time or effort to prepare. This Cucumber Avocado Salsa can be served as a dip with sliced vegetables, like a traditional salsa with chips, as a sauce on grilled chicken or shrimp or simply eaten with a spoon on it's own. It's a refreshing summer recipe no matter how you serve it.

    This looks so refreshing! What an interesting recipe. I'll have to give this one a try as we always have cukes and avocados on hand as well.

    Great idea - much more low-cal than my favourite guac recipe!

    Due to an unfortunate accident we no longer have cilantro in the garden but we do have plenty of mint. I made this today without the cilantro and it is a yummy combination! Thanks!

    Because I did not have cukes handy, I replaced them with fresh zuchinni. I also added green apple to the mix. Yummy! Thank you for the inspiration!

  • This was so crisp and refreshing! Great flavors! Mi kids are kind of purists and don't like when I mix their food (They want the avocado and cucumber separate and not touching!), but I think they could love this one with time. For now, my husband and I love it!!

    Mmmmm.....I made this over the weekend and it was a hit with the adults (I'm sure my daugher will warm up to it eventually since she's a fan of everything in it). I served it with pita chips and my husband put it on his turkey burger. It was also good on its own. I will be making this recipe over and over again especially during the Summer!
