Cucumber-Avocado Salsa

22 Aug

This is one of my favorite go-to appetizer dips.  Served with tortilla chips, it is so fresh tasting.  After about two chip-fulls I am hopelessly hooked.

Ingredients

  • 2 English cucumbers, seeded, quartered and cut into 1/2 inch slices
  • 2 scallions, white and green parts, minced
  • 3 T. red wine vinegar
  • 1 1/2 tsp. lime zest
  • 2 T. fresh lime juice
  • 1 T. honey
  • 1 T. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 T. chopped fresh cilantro
  • salt, to taste
  • freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 2 avocados, cubed

Combine cucumber and scallion in a medium bowl.  Whisk together vinegar and next five ingredients in a small bowl.  Pour vinaigrette over cucumber mixture and season with salt and pepper.  Can be prepared and refrigerated ahead of time.  Add the avocado just before serving.
