Ingredients:
1 English cucumber
1/2 Fresh California Avocado, peeled, seeded and diced
1/4 cup red bell pepper, diced
1 Tbsp. lime juice
1 Tbsp. cilantro, diced
1/2 tsp. cumin
1/4 tsp. salt

Method:
Chop off ends of cucumber and discard. Cut cucumber into 12 equal-sized round slices (approximately 1" width slices). Using a melon baller, scoop out center of cucumber slices, leaving enough cucumber on the bottom for the base.

In a mixing bowl, mash avocado, and add diced red bell pepper, lime juice, cilantro, cumin, and salt. Stir to combine.

Place avocado mixture in a zip top plastic bag. Snip off one bottom corner of bag and squeeze avocado mixture into hollowed-out cucumber slices.
