Do you ever get something new– a kitchen tool or gadget or a new ingredient– and then constantly find ways to use it? Well, I recently got a fancy schmancy new paring knife and wow! a sharp knife really makes a huge difference in the kitchen. I love my new knife and am constantly using this versatile tool as I prep and cook my way round the kitchen. I also ordered some Primal mayo, made with wholesome organic ingredients and without sugar, gluten, dairy, soy or canola.
So when I came across this recipe for a cucumber and avocado salad on Smitten Kitchen, I knew it would be a perfect recipe to make with both my new knife and my new mayo. And now I’m sharing it on the blog. Win-win-win.
3/4 to 1 pound seedless cucumber, washed and chopped into chunks
2 scallions, thinly sliced
1 large avocado, pitted and cubed
2 tablespoons mayonaise
Juice of half a lime
Salt and hot sauce (Sriracha) to taste
Chopped flat-leaf parsley to garnish
Combine cucumber, scallions and avocado in a bowl. Whisk together mayo, lime and seasonings, adjusting levels to taste. Drizzle salad with dressing and garnish with parsley.
