Cornish Blue and Avocado Salsa

Cornish Blue and Avocado Salsa

Last Summer I made a delicious Feta Salsa for a family BBQ. With the warmer days looming (hopefully!) I thought I would have a go at creating a new version using one of my favourite local cheeses - Cornish Blue. Nigella lovers will know that she made the Blue Cheese and Avocado combo famous with her Roqueumole, but I have taken her recipe as a base and personalised it. I used the salsa on homemade burgers in this instance, but it could also be used as a dip for crudites. It needs to be made as close to when you want to serve it as possible as the avocado will discolour (it's still fine to eat but wont look very appetising).


| Serves: 4  | Prep Time: 10 Minutes | Cook Time: -  | Total Time: 10 Minutes |


  • 2 ripe Avocado's
  • 125g Cornish Blue Cheese
  • 60ml Sour Cream
  • 1 Red Chilli finely chopped
  • 1/4 TSP Smoked Paprika
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • Salt and Pepper


  • Step 1: Mash the avocado's in a mixing bowl.
  • Step 2: Crumble in the blue cheese then stir through all the other ingredients. Mix thoroughly then transfer to serving dish.

  1. Delish Beth, I am sure this went down treat, especially with nachnos and a huge of glass of vino :)

  2. Oh yum! Can't wait for the weather to warm up a touch so we can enjoy this recipe.

  3. Roqueumole and pita chips would go down so well right now!!

  4. I bet this took a humble burger to a whole new level, sounds scrummy.

  5. Great idea to swap around the cheeses - I imagine Cashel Blue would be great too:}}

    Think I might change my dinner plans!!

  6. I never thought of using Blue Cheese in a quac, I bet it was great especially on a burger.

  7. Yep - I agree with Lucie - a glass of wine (or 3) with this would go down well!

  8. Oooh, I love this recipe. Thanks for sharing!

  9. This sounds wonder. Cornish Blue is my favourite blue cheese (not just cos I'm biased honest). Just wonder if it overwhelms the avocado at all?

  10. Choclette - I don't think so but if you're worried then just use less Cornish Blue. It really is wonderfull. You've got to try it

No Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie

This No-Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie is going to be my go to dessert this summer. A zingy lime cream encased in a sweet biscuit crumb - much like a no bake cheesecake...but better! It's seriously yummy and will happily sit in the fridge for a couple of days so there's no need to scoff it all at once if you don't want to 😜. It's quite rich too so the recipe made in a 20cm springform tin will easily feed 8 - 10 people, the perfect size for a family gathering or summer BBQ.

TOP TIPS FOR MAKING NO-BAKE ZINGY LIME CRUMB PIETry using ginger nut biscuits instead of digestives for a more grown up taste.For a 'fancier' dessert, pipe some whipped double cream around the edge of the pie and decorate with slices of lime.I whip the condensed milk, lime juice and double cream with a hand held electric whisk but you can do it by hand if you want to - it will give you a good arm workout!You can make the Zingy Lime Crumb Pie up to 3 days before you need it so it's a great ma…

Honey and Peanut Butter Flapjacks

These flapjacks are now my official weekday grab and go breakfast. I make a big batch on Sunday evening and I'm all set for the week. Oddly I don't really like peanut butter but it works well in this recipe. You can always substitute it for an extra 100g of ordinary butter if you wanted. A handful of raisins makes a nice addition too.
