Avocado Feta Salsa

January 4, 2008 at 10:46 pm 6 comments

This is a recipe that my mother in law has made famous…and it’s my favorite salsa of all time. It’s simply amazing…there is just something about these ingredients, and the feta that makes it ADDICTING! People literally swarm around the bowl at parties…it’s gone within 20 minutes. Can’t wait to have you try it!

2 plum tomatoes
1 avocado, chopped
1/4 cup finely chopped red onion
1 clove garlic, minced
1 T snipped fresh parsley
1 T snipped fresh oregano
1 T olive oil
1 T red or white wine vinegar
4 oz. feta cheese, coarsely crumbled

In a medium bowl, combine all ingredients except feta cheese. Stir gently to mix. Gently stir in feta cheese. Cover and chill for 2 hours or up to 6 hours. Serve with tortilla chips, pitas, or homemade bread. Makes 12 (1/4 cup) servings.

    thank you so much for this heavenly, lip-smacking, delicious Salsa that made my evening yesterday. I was home alone, the babes asleep, hungry (what, me eating dinner at the same time as them? too stressfull, unfortunately. I just sit w/them and interact) when I got a message on bloglines for a new blog on WalkSlowly.
    The Subject? Your ‘new’ HappyFoody blog which I love all the time, where I went through all the archives several times when you stopped posting and where I cooked several really yummy dishes off.

    Anyway – I immediately made this salsa and ate it all on my own *blushing* with tortilla chips. As there was no feta cheese in my fridge I used goat cheese which was equally delicious and added a lovely creamy touch to this salsa. It will definitely be a keeper – thanks so much for this recipe!

    I’m so glad to hear that both of you loved this recipe!! I just can’t get enough of it…in fact, I haven’t had it for awhile. I may just need to make it next week!

    Whoa, this stuff is amazing. I actually made several weeks ago, but I’m making it today to bring to a party and I’m sure it will be a hit.

Words to Eat By

"It is easier to change a man's religion than to change his diet." -Margaret Mead

"I don't understand why asking people to eat a well-balanced vegetarian diet is considered drastic, while it is medically conservative to cut people open and put them on cholesterol lowering drugs for the rest of their lives." - Dean Ornish, MD

“Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
