A super light, delicious dilly vegan salad perfect for a baguette or sweet potato rounds! Big flavor with few ingredients.
Alright, I’m no gardener, but we lucked out this year and have a pretty decent cucumber plant! Usually our boy Dulee helps him self to them before they grow big enough for us to eat so this year we improvised to keep them out of his reach and I’m so glad we did!
If you’re like me, and don’t really have a green thumb, try growing cucumbers as a first veggie! I grow from seed and they always start great and are really hardy. They need tons of water but even if they droop they come right back to life with a big drink.Jump to Recipe
This recipe is one we’ve made for a few years now. It’s perfect for summer get togethers since it’s ingredients are so light and fresh.
We started the recipe by putting it on sweet potato rounds but have also thoroughly enjoyed it on a nice baguette, focaccia, or toasted sourdough.
And it’s so simple: chop up the veggies and fruits, throw them in a bowl and add the dressing ingredients. That’s it for a super flavorful, light, delicious dip!
It’s even more drool-worthy when the avocado starts breaking up and creates a creamy dressing!

**A note if you’re making the recipe ahead of time – the olive oil may solidify in the fridge so just stir it real good and it will melt back down. Also, wait to add the avocado until you’re serving to keep it from browning.
