Avocado Cucumber Salsa

Avocado Cucumber Salsa

This Avocado Cucumber Salsa tastes so good that it will become your favourite appetiser in no time.

This is so pretty and fresh. I can’t resist it!

Lately, I’ve been an avocado fiend – I eat about half of one every other day!. I am completely in love with this buttery green fruit (yes fruit!). Avocados are nutrient rich, wonderfully versatile, beautiful and loaded with healthy fats. Let’s not only smash them on toast or make them into guacamole guys! Let us dream bigger.

How won’t this lovely salsa with light greens, soft reds and the most refreshing flavour make you feel like the most beautiful person on earth?

This proves that magic can be achieved in one bite of salsa. True Magic, I tell you.

I love salsa. I can eat it all day, every day.

But this salsa right here is a sure winner. I mean we’re talking avocado, scallions, cucumbers, garlic, lemon, tomatoes. Need I continue? Why aren’t you poking your head into the kitchen fridge trying to grab these ingredients?

Avocado cucumber salsa ingredients on a chopping board

Yes, you really should be.

You’ll love every single bite. This salsa is so refreshing and isn’t heavy at all.

To be very clear, this is not one of those hungry dinner salsa. I love those but this is different.

This is a refreshing salsa for brunches, Mother’s Day dinner, bring along and those extremely hot summer days. You can eat this anyhow you want it. On crackers, with quinoa, without quinoa, with pita chips, or straight out of the bowl with extra mint and almonds. There are so many yummy ways to enjoy this. Feel free to experiment with it.

You’ve got to try it. This salsa is so good that when you won’t feel like you are giving up anything. It’s absolutely perfect.

And It gets even better. This recipe takes less than 15 minutes to make. Beat that!

To prepare, just chop all the vegetables into tiny pieces, toss everything together and voila! The meal is ready.

A crunchy, crispy and refreshing salsa made with avocado, scallions, cucumbers, garlic, lemon and tomatoes. It’s perfect for a side dish and it's also Gluten-free. Just 15 minutes and it’s ready.
