These Radish Avocado Cracker Bites are ready in 10 minutes and are absolutely addicting! Crispy, creamy, and tasty, they're a surprisingly delicious appetizer!
Hi. My name is Kate and I am addicted to avocados.
They are just so darn good!
Avocados are perfect with ANYTHING: Over burgers, inside burgers, in salsa, in egg avocado salad, in shrimp salads, as a "boat" to hold other salads, in tostadas, and even eaten sliced with a bit of salt and a squeeze of lime juice.
And of course, there's the whole avocado toast thing that has taken the internet by storm, although I feel like the bloggers who are posting avocado toast recipes are kind of cheating. I mean, I've been eating avocado toast for breakfast for years, it's not like they discovered this.
If you're an avocado lover like me, I'm sure you've experienced the joy of cutting into a perfectly blemish-free avocado.
I think my love for avocados is due to my love for all things creamy and my love of all things healthy - the avocado is the perfect combination of healthy and delicious.
So I've been getting creative with all kinds of avocado snacks, such as these Radish + Avocado Cracker Bites.
They're super easy to put together and fun to eat. All you need is a few radishes, your favorite crackers and an avocado to make a half-assed guacamole.
What's a half-assed guacamole, you ask?? Basically it's a mashed avocado with garlic, salt, and lime juice. You can definitely add some spice to it by chopping up half a jalapeño, or add some chopped tomato if you want to get fancy.
But I am trying to keep things simple. Smash, stir, spread, serve. Done and done.
These radish avocado crackers are a great snack to hold us over to dinner, and they are fun enough to be served to people when they come over.
Your guests can put together their own crackers, or you can make a platter of these and set them out. I actually like dipping sliced radishes into mashed avocado - I find that the crunchy spicy radish goes perfectly with creamy smooth avocado.
Do whatever floats your boat! You can't go wrong with this little avocado cracker appetizer.
These Radish Avocado Cracker Bites can be served with chopped chives, scallions, and/or cilantro leaves on top.
Now let me share a little trick with you...
The easiest way to make mashed avocado:
Use a mojito muddler!! Yep. Not a fork - that actually take a lot longer and doesn't make your avocado as smooth. A mojito muddler is the perfect tool to smash avocado. We barely make mojitos at home (though when we do, we make GOOD MOJITOS - see my recipe for a delicious Coconut Agave Mojito), but I use my mojito muddler to make guacamole and for avocado toast ALL THE TIME.
Just put two avocado halves in a bowl and mash away. When the avocado is mashed, add the minced garlic, lime juice, salt and pepper, then stir with the mojito muddler (such as this one) - no need to get another utensil dirty.

That is so yummy Kate! We recently added the avocados in our diet, since they're not common here in Greece. The primary reason was that they're very healthy, especially for the cardiovascular system. When we first tried guacamole, we combined it with grilled salmon and the result was AMAZING. The best part was, that we used the leftovers in the next day, on rye sandwiches (equally fantastic!). So, we're always looking out for new ideas to use avocados:) Keep them coming!:) Have a beautiful weekend! Panos and Mirella

Aren't avocados THE BEST? As a dip, as a spread, as a snack you eat with a spoon - all delicious.. my mom called me an hour ago to tell me about a snack she accidentally came up with when she realized she ran out of bread for toast - she sliced feta and put it on top of avocado pieces. She said it was really good!
