Avocado Cucumber Salad recipe

You could use this avocado and cucumber salad as a salad, or you could use it as a relish in enchiladas or tacos. It would also be tasty served with tortilla chips as a simple green salsa.


  • 2 cucumbers
  • 2 avocados
  • Small handful freshly chopped coriander
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 2 spring onions
  • Salt and pepper
  • Juice of one lime
  • Juice of half a lemon


  1. Cube the cucumbers. Chop the avocados in half around the stone, then twist to separate. Remove the stone, then scoop out the flesh using a spoon.

  2. Finely chop the spring onions and mince the garlic clove.

  3. Stir the cucumbers, avocados, coriander, garlic and spring onions together, then dress with the lemon and lime juice. Season well with salt and pepper.

Add olive oil to this if you like, although the creaminess of the avocado means that it isn't really needed. This recipe serves four.
