Pea, Avocado and Radish Stack

Share the love :)

I love easy recipes I can throw together in a quick minute. The other day I found this recipe for a Pea, Avocado and Radish Stack I thought I would serve alongside a big salad I was making.  I would call this lunch. But these also make a quick and easy appetizer.

The original recipe called for the use of jicama as a base for this pea and avocado spread.  I tried it though I would never do that again.  The jicama was so difficult to cut.  I am amazed I didn’t lose and finger or break the knife.  I did my best to cut up some uniform 1/2” planks out of the jicama but it was not easy.  In the end, neither Chad nor I even liked the flavor of the jicama and we ditched it in the recipe, choosing to use crackers instead.

I also decided to add a little finely minced jalapeno to the peas and the avocado mixture, just to spice it up a bit.

This would serve well as a dip or a base for a fresh vegetable wrap.  Here, however, I spread the dip onto crackers and topped them with a few slices of raw radishes.  Enjoy!

Looks great :-) I would definitely like it better on great crackers instead of the jicama.
