This is one of our all time favorites and a recipe that’s easy to duplicate.  In this version we introduce tantalizing new flavors to a now common party staple like “salsa.”  Something about the salty feta and creamy avocado make “Our World Famous Avocado-Feta Salsa” addicting.  This is California in a bowl, summer style.  Fresh herbs and tangy red wine vinegar compliment this dish to the fullest.  Clean, creamy and tangy.  Great as a classic dip or as an amazing garnish to fish, grilled chicken or any sort of taco.   Cheers to easy summer living!
