The nutritional content of recipes is calculated by a registered dietitian. Because ingredients and measurements may vary, the values we give are close approximations.


  1. Cover the chopped zucchini with a damp paper towel and microwave on high for about 3 minutes until tender. Drain, pressing lightly on the zucchini to extract any liquid. Let cool about 5 minutes.
  2. In a mixing bowl, add avocado, cilantro, onion, garlic, lime juice, hot sauce and salt. Mash with a fork until combined.
  3. Fold zucchini into avocado mixture.

Tip: To help dip stay fresher longer, place the avocado pit into the prepared dip!
