Cucumber, Avocado, and Strawberry Salsa
This inventive and nutritious take on a salsa recipe combines cucumber, avocado and strawberry. It's just one of the simple spiralizer recipes in Ali Maffucci's Inspiralized book.
Who says salsa has to have perfectly cubed ingredients? Not those of us who are Inspiralized! It's time to transform your salsas by using cucumber half-moons. Whenever I'm invited to a barbecue or sporting event, where I know healthy foods will be scarce, I bring this filling snack. Not only is it fun to eat, but it's also a conversation starter.
|1||large seedless cucumber|
|200g||hulled and chopped fresh strawberries|
|1||very ripe avocado, diced|
|1 tbsp||chopped fresh coriander|
|1||small jalapeño pepper, deseeded and finely chopped|
|30g||red onion, finely chopped|
|Juice of 1 lime|
|Salt and pepper|
You will need a Spiralizer.
Slice the cucumber in half lengthways. Spiralize using blade C. Pat the cucumber noodles dry to absorb moisture.
In a large bowl, combine the cucumber noodles, strawberries, avocado, coriander, jalapeño, and red onion. In a small bowl, whisk together the honey and lime juice and season with salt and pepper. Pour the dressing over the salsa and toss with the cucumber mixture to combine. Serve with crisps or vegetable crudités.
If you’re preparing this salsa in advance, add the cucumber noodles at the last minute to avoid a build-up of moisture.
