This Cucumber Avocado dip is cool, creamy and refreshing. Similar to a guacamole style dip with avocados, cucumber, peppers and onions. 

When the weather warms up I love to serve easy to make, cool dips to family and friends like pico de gallo, french onion dip and this cucumber dip.

We brought this dip to a party recently and everyone immediately asked for the recipe. Its cool, crunchy, creamy and packed with flavor. 

If you want something a little different than guacamole, this is a great recipe to try. 

What you need

English cucumber – I prefer using this type of cucumber because there are less seeds. 

Bell Pepper – Use a red, yellow or orange bell pepper. 

Red Onion – Adds color and a little crunch. You could substitute with diced green onions. 

Avocado – Use 1-2 ripe avocados for this recipe.

Sour cream – The creamy base to this dip. You could also substitute Greek yogurt. 

Parsley – Adds freshness to this dip. 

How to make

  1. Chop – Get all of your ingredients chopped and prepped. Make sure to cut everything so it is bite sized and can fit on a chip. 
  2. Mix – Place diced avocado in a bowl. Pour lemon juice over to help prevent browning. Stir in the rest of the ingredients.
  3. Serve or store covered in refrigerator.

Recipe Variations

Here are a few ingredients that could be added in for a little change:

  • Minced jalapeno – If you like a little heat try adding 1 tablespoon of this spicy pepper.
  • Diced tomatoes – I have added these and they add another layer of flavor and texture.
  • Shrimp – Make this a full meal and add in some chopped shrimp.
  • Shredded chicken – This makes a great chicken salad. 

What to serve with cucumber avocado dip?

I love this with tortilla chips, crackers, vegetables or toast. 

How long will it last?

Because this dip has avocados, it will last 1-2 days covered in the refrigerator.
