I recently purchased several avocados and then realized that I would need to use them all up before I went on vacation. (Side note: I'm in the Bahamas for the week! More on this later...) When I was assigned CJ's blog Morsels of Life for this month's Secret Recipe Club, I knew I needed to make something that 1) involved avocados and 2) wasn't baked! CJ has been blogging for a few months now and has a very similar philosophy to me when it comes to cooking: make food that is quick and tasty. I'm on board with that 100%, CJ!
I struck gold when I found the recipe for Feta Avocado Dip on CJ's blog. Unsurprisingly, I had feta on hand, since I usually have at least 3 types of cheeses sitting in my refrigerator at any given time. I was able to use my food processor to make this dip in just minutes and the results were so refreshing and delicious that it accidentally-on-purpose doubled as my lunch. I can't wait to make this again!
Feta Avocado Dip
slightly adapted from Morsels of Life
- 1 avocado, chopped
- 1/4 cup feta cheese
- 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic, minced
- 1/4 jalapeno, chopped
1) Place all the ingredients into the bowl of a food processor.
2) Process until the dip is as lumpy or smooth as desired.
3) Serve immediately with chips and/or vegetables.
