Super Easy Avocado Feta Cheese Salsa Recipe

This is a delicious recipe that you can use with chips or you can serve it as a condiment with a main dish. The recipe is colorful and full of flavor. You can serve it as a snack while you watch a movie, or make it for an appetizer. The combination of avocado and feta cheese really makes for a tasty dish. You could also make it into a simple summer supper when the weather is hot and you do not want to do a lot of cooking. The attached pita chip recipe is a great way to enjoy this salsa.

This dish gives you fiber, protein, vitamins A and C, calcium and iron. Not only do you get great taste, you get a solid serving of nutrition, too. Serve this delicious avocado feta cheese salsa with beef, chicken, or lamb. You can even put it in a breakfast taco full of scrambled eggs. Use it to top off a burger if you are in the mood for something gourmet.

When you shop for your feta cheese, you want to look for a few things. You can find feta cheese made from goat’s milk or a combination of sheep and cow’s milk. You can find it in blocks or in crumbles. Choose one you like best; they can range from a mild flavor to a sharp flavor. Store your cheese in the deli drawer or on a shelf. You want the freshest cheese possible when you buy. Crumbled feta needs to be used quickly before it dries out.

The salsa is made by combining tomatoes, avocado, onion, garlic and herbs, along with feta cheese, and that is the special part of this recipe. While the mixture is chilling you can get busy making the pita chips. Of course, you do not have to serve those with the salsa.

You might want to serve it with tacos, fajitas or as a condiment for your meat, fish or salad instead. If you do want to make homemade pita chips though, this recipe is really good. You just need to brush oil or butter over pita bread and season them. They will turn lovely and crispy in the oven, and then you can enjoy the chips and dip together, as a lovely snack or appetizer.

Photo Description:

This unusual avocado and feta salsa makes a change from the tomato ones you might be more accustomed to. You can cut the chunks quite big like in the photo or make them a lot smaller. If you want more of a pico de gallo salsa, which means larger chunks, that would work well if you serve this as a side dish, but if you prefer a dip, then make the pieces small and you will be able to scoop them up easier with the chips. This is very easy to prepare and it makes a fantastic snack for dinner guests who are just arriving.
