Salsa verde:

  1. In the bowl of a blender or food processor, combine the avocado, salsa verde, cilantro, lime juice, and garlic.

  2. Blend until smooth, pausing to scrape down the sides as necessary. Set aside.

To Assemble:

  1. First, use a fork to separate and fluff up the flesh of the spaghetti squash.

  2. Divide the slaw into each of the spaghetti squash “bowls”, then add a big dollop of avocado salsa verde.

  3. Finish the bowls with another sprinkle of pepper, cilantro, and crumbled feta or pepitas.

  4. Serve, and enjoy!
