This healthy cucumber and avocado salad is the definition of summer in a bowl. With spiralized cucumber and a creamy avocado-based dressing, you’ll be hooked with the first bite!
I cannot even begin to tell you how excited I am for this post. First off, I found a new vegetable to obsess over spiralizing AND secondly I get to share my latest partnership with y’all. Side note- when did I start saying y’all? It just felt right.
Despite owning a spiralizer for an entire year, my spiralizing recipes range from curly fries to chicken pho soup with absolutely nothing in between. This is entirely due to the fact that when I discovered I could make curly fries with my spiralizer, I had absolutely no desire to expand my recipes beyond this. I mean CURLY FRIES PEOPLE!
But spring and summer are upon us and vegetables have been calling my name so I thought I might branch out beyond the heavy winter root vegetable family expand my horizons.
Spiralizer meet cucumber.
But let’s not forget that some vegetables don’t have to be eaten seasonally. They can be enjoyed fresh and in season year round. I’m looking at you dear avocado…
You might think I’m suggesting that you all move to Mexico to have fresh avocados year round (wouldn’t that would be nice…), but last I heard there was an invention called the “airplane” that can literally bring those avocados from a farm in Mexico straight to your doorstep in the great white north in a matter of days. MIND-BLOWING.
I know, I know, all of this transport makes avocados a wee bit pricey but I have good news! Did you know you don’t have to buy avocados organic? Farmers almost never use pesticides and the outer skin means that the actual fruit inside isn’t affected by pesticides anyway. And yes, avocado is a fruit. Non-organic = $$$ in yo pocket.
I am clearly well-read on my avocado knowledge. Unlike my spiralizer recipes, I would go as far as to say that at least 25% of recipes have some form of avocado in them. Oh but it doesn’t stop there. I literally douse my body in avocado. It makes the best skin moisturizer for FACEMASK FRIDAY and you don’t know soft and silky hair until you’ve made yourself an avocado hairmask. I quite obviously have a real passion for avocados.
