Cucumber Avocado Salsa is a cool and refreshing side dish to serve with chips or even on top of fish or chicken.
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 if they are apples or bananas. They crave that fresh and crisp crunch of a cucumber!
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 serve alongside chips or even on top of fish or chicken. It’s great on those warm nights when you want something nutritious and light that 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. If you’re not simply eating it with a spoon on its own, it’s perfect alongside Fish Tacos, Mango Shrimp Ceviche or Chicken Fajitas. It’s a refreshing summer recipe no matter how you serve it.
It doesn’t get any easier than tossing together ripe avocados, fresh cucumbers and some simple herbs to get a delicious snack, side or topping. We love this recipe, and I know you will too! Tag me on social media if you make it and let me know what you think.
