Pickled Avocado (Keto)

The people that pack rock-hard, under-ripe avocados into “ripe and ready” packaging are the first people I will come back and haunt one day! If you feel the same way, here is a great way to use up avocados that you have already sliced up, but are clearly not ready to eat. Simply pickle them in a clean jar along with vinegar, water and some other bits! I used mustard seeds, black peppercorns, coriander and chillies – but you can play around with other herbs and whole spices that will add a little flavour to your pickling liquid. I used one large avocado for this recipe and based the macros on this serving two people as a snack or condiment, so adjust accordingly. You could also dice up the pickled avo slices and use them in salads or Ceviche, like we did. Enjoy!

Pickled Avocado (Keto)

Acidic and lovely as a quick snack, these slices of pickled avo are a great way to use up avocados that are not yet ripe enough to enjoy fresh. (For my UK readers, scroll to the end of the recipe to see image ads of the products I use.)
Course Sauces / Condiments, Snack
Cuisine General
Prep Time 30 minutes
Pickling Time 3 hours
Total Time 3 hours 30 minutes
Servings 2 as a snack or condiment


  • 130 g (4.6 oz) hot water
  • 1 TB sea salt flakes
  • 130 g (4.6 oz) white wine vinegar
  • 2 chillies, (optional)
  • 1 tsp yellow mustard seeds
  • 1 tsp whole black peppercorns
  • small handful coriander, leaves and stalks
  • 1 large under-ripe avocado


  • Place the hot water into a bowl and add the salt, stirring until the salt dissolves. Add the vinegar, chillies, mustard seeds and black peppercorns and set aside to cool. Once cool, add the coriander.
  • Peel and slice the avocado and place inside a suitably-sized clean jar. Pour the mixture into the jar along with all the little bits. The pickling mixture should cover the avocado.
  • Seal the jar and store in the fridge for at least 3 hours before using. We left ours overnight - and it was delicious, so I recommend this.
  • Dice up and add to salads (or Ceviche, like we did), or simply tuck in, as is.
