Light & healthy. I made ours chunkier as I thought it would lack something being pureed in the blender so I fork crushed everything. It wasn't too garlicky since I had no press on hand, it could have done with one more organic Canadian garlic clove (not garlic from China!). I also used freshly squeezed lemon juice as that is what I had on hand, sea salt for a big pinch, English cucumber without de-seeding, fresh cilantro and flat leaf parsley. I served it as a dip for Beantos Black Bean Chips (no corn! I love them). Made for January 2013's Casual Veggie Tag (come join us everyone!)
Made for ZWT-8 (Family Picks) & as part of assorted snacks to welcome my DH & a friend home from a fishing trip. The flavour of this dip is excellent & the prep both easy & quick. I know this dip was described as a "creamier version of guacamole", but I found I missed some textural component(s) & I ended up adding diced cucumber & black olives into the mix. Then I added a little extra garlic & it was good-to-go for us. Thx for sharing this recipe w/us. The guys were very happy w/their snacks. :-)
WOW, this was super yummy! I never even thought of making guacamole with cucumber, but its a perfect match. The cool and crisp cucumber with the smooth avocado is just wonderful both in texture and taste!<br/>Loved how healthy this was, too!<br/>THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this great recipe with us, Rita! <br/>Made and reviewed for Veggie Swap #28 November 2010 and the Eating Well Event in the Photo Forum.
