Creamy Cucumber Salsa

This Creamy Cucumber Salsa is soooooo good! It combines cucumber, tomato, red onion, garlic and avocado with a velvety sour cream mixture. Divine!

OK, I might be obsessed.

 

This creamy mixture has won me over and even made me a believer in all things cucumber.

I know, I know…. cucumber in salsa? Have you lost your mind, woman? Cucumbers are for salads and teeny tiny cucumber sandwiches, you say. Nevertheless, this new use will have you heading to the store to stock up on California ripe cucumbers for the upcoming holiday and every weekend thereafter!

 

Creamy Cucumber Salsa

Not only is it tasty, but it’s an easy, inexpensive dip for your weekend guests. Or in any event you’re like me, just grab some chips and have it for a weeknight dinner! You can easily change up what it’s served with. Try whole grain crackers, crostini, or even your toasted bread in the morning.

 

Remove seeds from cucumbers

They key is to remove the seeds from the cucumber. A lot of water is retained in the center membrane, so removing them has a two-fold purpose. It’s particularly important to get rid of those pesky seeds and eliminate what could cause a watered down mixture.

 

Ingredients diced up: cucumber, tomato, red onion, garlic and avocado

The other ingredients are fresh tomatoes, avocado, red onion and garlic, all of which you should have no trouble finding right now in the Golden State.

 

Pouring sour cream mixture over ingredients

However, the kicker, and the blend that sets this salsa over the top, is the velvety seasoned sour cream mixture that is incorporated into the salsa ingredients.
