Avocado Dip

photo (7)This dip, when made the original way (with feta), is affectionately called “Crack Dip” because it’s the kind that you put out at a party and people just hover around the bowl, not speaking, completely addicted and shoveling it in.

HUGE shout-out to my friend Suzanne, who gave me this recipe and brought it to many, many memorable parties over the years! Party-animal Suz, this one’s for you.

Avocado Feta Salsa

For serving 2-4 people, use the lesser measurements. If serving more than 4 people, use the higher measurements of each ingredient.

Ingredients

  • 2 – 4 avocados – cut in chunks (put in last, right before serving, to avoid browning)
  • 2 – 4 plum tomatoes – chopped
  • ¼ – ½ cup red onion (1/4 –1/2 of an onion) – chopped very fine
  • 1 bunch fresh curly parsley – chopped very fine
  • Garlic to taste (1 – 2 cloves) minced
  • ½ – 1 tsp oregano
  • 1-2 Tbs olive oil
  • 2 – 4 Tbs red wine vinegar
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 block of feta cheese, crumbled (optional)

Instructions

For best results, mix all the ingredients, except the avocados, the night before or several hours before serving so the flavors have a chance to marinate.  Then add the avocados right before serving.

Serve with tortilla chips, sliced red peppers, plantain chips, or alongside some protein. Yum.
