Raw pasta dishes will leave you feeling so refreshed and at your best; they are perfect for the warm summer months. Feel free to omit the cucumber in this recipe and add an extra avocado if you like for variations (you may like to add a couple tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil if you do). You can even add some arugula to the puree instead of using basil. Lots of ways to change it up and keep it fresh! You could also put this sauce on any pasta of choice. But zucchini noodles is a great way to eat it...hands down...so refreshing and perfect!

  1. Hi,

    I tried this creamy avocado-cucumber sauce (but with rice milk) and it\’s FANTASTIC

    It\’s soooo good.

    You can also use it as a dip sauce or as a salad dressing or in tortillas with tofu and veggies.

    Thank you for this recipe, I love it :-)
