Ingredients

  • 1 Ripe Avocado
  • Half a Cucumber
  • Juice of half a lemon or lime
  • Salt to taste
  • Olive oil
  • 1 finely chopped red chilli (optional)

Method

  1. Peel and remove the stone from the avocado. Place in a bowl and mash with a fork to lumpy consistency.

  2. Peel the cucumber and grate on to a plate, you can leave a few bits of the skin on as this will add colour. The excess water now needs to be squeezed out of the grated cucumber, do this by placing it between sheets of kitchen paper which will absorb the liquid and squeezing! do this a few times until most of the moisture is removed. Put in the bowl with the mashed avocado.

  3. Add the lemon or lime juice and chilli (if using) and perfunctorally mix together. Add olive oil (if needed) to loosen the mixture and season to taste with salt.

  4. Serve as a snack with toasted pitta bread/tortilla chips or as a side to a Mexican meal.
