Equipment

Ingredients

  • 3 medium Haas avocados peeled and pit removed
  • 2 medium cucumbers peeled
  • 1 cup loosely packed fresh cilantro leaves plus extra for garnish
  • 1/4 red onion peeled
  • Juice from 2 lemons
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt or to taste

Instructions

  • Peel and pit the avocado. Peel the avocado and chop into large chunks. Remove thicker stems from cilantro. Peel the onion and cut into large chunks. Place all ingredients in a food processor or blender, and blend or process until smooth. You can keep it somewhat chunky by pulsing your blender on and off, or blend until smooth and creamy.
  • Pour in to small glasses {~1/2 cup per serving} or bowls and place in to the refrigerator to chill. Garnish with fresh cilantro, if desired, before serving.

Notes

Ingredient Substitutions

  • Cilantro can be substituted with any fresh herbs, i.e. basil, mint, parsley, dill.
  • Swap the lemon juice with lime juice if you like.
  • Don't tolerate raw onions? Try adding in the green tops of onions to enhance the flavor.
