Avocado and Feta Dip

I am going to come clean. I have a new addiction...to Feta Cheese. It is quickly becoming like Frank's Hot Sauce and Chipotle Chiles for me. I know, you're wondering where I've been? I've told you before I kinda live under a rock. Anyway, I just love it! It is tangy and delicious. This dip combines the Feta Cheese with avocados and homegrown tomatoes, more of my favorite things. I love to pile some of this on a bed of lettuce for lunch. It is the perfect summertime dip/salad.
Avocado and Feta Dip
1  large tomato, seeded and chopped
1  red bell pepper, chopped
1/3  cup red onion, finely diced
2  tablespoons olive oil
2  tablespoons White Balsamic Vinegar
1  tablespoon Red Wine Vinegar
1  clove garlic, minced
1  teaspoon fresh Oregano, minced
2  large Avocados, chopped 
1/2  cup crumbled Feta Cheese


In a medium bowl, mix the tomato, red bell pepper and red onion.


In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, White Balsamic Vinegar, Red Wine Vinegar, garlic and fresh Oregano.


Pour over the tomato mixture. Gently mix in the chopped Avocados and Feta Cheese.


Serve with corn chips, pita chips, flatbread or just grab a spoon!

Enjoy!

Cooks Note: If you don't have White Balsamic Vinegar feel free to use dark. The dip will still be delicious, it is just not as pretty!

  2. It sure looks tasty. I'm not real fond of feta...but I bet I could learn to love it the way you dress it up. *-*
