Last week at the marathon expo, there was...an avocado truck! It's kind of like a food truck or ice cream truck, but it carries avocados (pretty much, the best food on the planet!). I'm pretty sure my dream job would be to drive it.
Well, the avocado ladies had samples of something avocado. I had to try it. It involved a tiny little container with a baby fork. It was so cute--I wish I had my camera.
It was avocado pineapple cucumber salsa. Each item in its name just made it sound better and better. It's a genius combo of sweet, spicy, savory, and salty.
I added more onion and lime and added some tomatoes to the original recipe. But, pretty much any combination of these flavors would be amazing.
And, if anyone happens to know how one can get a job driving an avocado truck, let me know!
Avocado Pineapple Cucumber Salsa
Recipe adapted from Truly Mexican by Santibañez
Makes about 4 cups
- 1 cucumber, peeled and seeded
- 1 small red onion
- 2 jalapeño chiles
- 1 lime (juiced)
- 2-3 ripe avocados
- 1 c pineapple
- 1/2 c cherry tomatoes
- 1/2 tsp salt
Avocados will discolor as they're exposed to air, so to keep them greener, before refrigerating be sure to wrap the bowl with plastic wrap with the plastic wrap actually touching the salsa.
