I am not a food blogger. In fact, I would be a terrible food blogger! I tried sooo hard to prepare the recipe I’m sharing today and take some shots along the way so I could have a nice, long, colorful blog post with lots of pretty photos, witty anecdotes, and helpful tips.
I’m just way to impatient to do it. So instead, make this. Today. Get some fresh tomatoes and herbs from a local stand, grab a few avocados and some feta at the store, and enjoy this summer, delicious, slightly Mediterranean version of guacamole–the chunky version. Mmmmm.
I stuffed mine in a pita pocket, this stuff is also fantastic with pita or regular tortilla chips or on some toasted baguette slices (drizzle the slices with olive oil, sprinkle on salt and pepper, toast for 10 minutes in a 350 degree oven and rub with a whole peeled garlic clove). So good.
Mediterranean Avocado Salsa
- two ripe avocados, diced
- 2-3 good tomatoes, seeded and diced
- 1/2 cup feta cheese
- 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 clove garlic, finely diced
- 1/4 red onion, if you’re so inclined (I never am, but I know plenty of you actually like onions) *shudder*
- 2 tablespoons fresh herbs (I used cilantro and basil, I’ve also used parsley and oregano), finely diced
Toss together and enjoy.
Doesn’t it look tasty, down to that stray tomato seed on the plate? Oh, and the other reason I’d be a terrible food blogger? My recipes are more guides–most of what prepare is pretty fluid and changes depending on what I have on hand. It’s all equally good, but a little harder to type out with instructions for others to follow. But seriously, try this. You won’t be sorry.
