Contributed by: Kris ArrietaAdded: Jan 31, 2010 at 05:57 PM


Yummy alternative to avocados.

  • 24 fresh asparagus spears, trimmed and halved
  • 1/2 cup salsa (check ingredients)
  • 1 tablespoon cilantro leaf
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 4 scallions, thinly sliced
How to make it:
  1. In a large pan (preferably non-stick), combine the asparagus with 1/2 cup of water and bring it to a boil.
  2. Reduce the heat and simmer, until the asparagus is tender but crisp, about 5 minutes.
  3. Drain and run under cold water to cool and stop the cooking process.
  4. In a food processor, blitz the asparagus, salsa, cilantro and garlic.
  5. Add the scallions, and pulse several times until chunky/smooth (as you prefer).
  6. Transfer to a serving bowl.
  7. Refrigerate, covered, until chilled, about 1 hour.
