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
