Serve your guests with these seafood appetizers made using avocado - ready in 20 minutes.
Updated Dec 29, 2010

Ingredients

  • 1 ripe avocado, pitted and cut into chunks
  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise or salad dressing
  • 2 teaspoons lime juice
  • Dash of ground red pepper (cayenne)
  • Dash of salt
  • 2 large cucumbers, cut into 3/8-inch slices (24 slices)
  • 1 package (8 oz) refrigerated flake-style imitation crabmeat
  • Fresh cilantro leaves, if desired

Steps

  • 1
    Place avocado, mayonnaise, lime juice, red pepper and salt in food processor or blender. Cover and process until smooth.
  • 2
    Spread avocado mixture on each cucumber slice. Top with crabmeat. Sprinkle with cilantro. Serve immediately.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    The lime juice keeps the color of the mashed avocado from darkening. Making this appetizer right before serving time, though, is best.
  • tip 2
    To remove the pit from the avocado, cut the avocado lengthwise in half around the pit, and pull apart the halves. The pit will stay in one of the halves. Firmly and carefully strike the pit with the sharp edge of a knife. While holding the avocado, twist the knife to loosen and remove the pit.
