A while back we were invited to a friend’s house for a potluck. One of our friends brought an Avocado Salsa with chips. I immediately had to have some since I have mad love for anything that has Avocados in it. I took a bit of my chip and what do you know, there was some Feta Cheese in!!! I nearly lost my mind. It was simply put delicious. I mean, let’s face it we Persians love our Feta Cheese and how can I not like anything that has Feta Cheese in it??!!
Before I proceed further, let me say again how much I love Avocados. I can’t tell you what a happy day it was when I was first introduced to Guacamole when I moved to LA. I suppose that it is no surprise that about 10 years or so ago I was nicknamed the “Guacamole Girl” by my friends Dawn, Thomas and their family. There was a time that I used to take all the ingredients with me to their gatherings and make the Guacamole right in front of everyone. In fact I was totally reminded of my nickname just a short few weeks ago by Thomas’ mom!
This Guacamole with Feta Cheese has been a huge hit so far. I made it on Sunday for today’s post and took it with me to a gathering that I was going to. Everyone raved about it! The Feta Cheese adds a certain je ne sais quoi that will totally stimulate your taste buds! I hope you all will enjoy it as much as the rest of us have been!!!
