Avocado and Feta Salsa

When Daniel and Emma had their house warming/BBQ, they asked if everyone would bring something. Since I'm Uncle Favorite, I made several of Daniel's must-haves. The potato salad was a big hit, the marinated veggies were a BIGGER hit, and well, then there was the carrot cake, which is in a league of its own, thank you very much. Of course, many people brought salads and desserts and appies, which were all fabulous. And Chris did an awesome job manning the grill!
This salsa (which was made by my niece, Tricia, who got it from her sister-in-law, Tonia) was FABULOUS and yummy and different and a nice change of pace from the usual chips and salsa. It was kind of like guacamole, but the feta just brought a whole new dynamic to the table. Very easy to make and HIGHLY addictive!!!
 So, the next time you need to bring something to a party or BBQ, give this one a try. Then sit back and watch everyone devour it! LOVE!
Thanx again Trish!

2 plum tomatoes, chopped
2 avocados, halved, seeded, peeled& chopped (sometimes I add one or two more avocados)
1/4 cup red onion, minced
1 clove of garlic, minced
1 tbs fresh oregano
1 tbs fresh parsley
1 tbs olive oil
1 tbs red wine vinegar
4 oz feta cheese, coarsely crumbled
Pita or tortilla chips

Directions :
Combine tomatoes, avocado, onion, garlic, parsley, oregano, oil & vinegar. Mix well. Gently stir in feta cheese. Cover and chill for 2-6 hours. Serve with pita or tortilla chips.

I think the only thing I would change is maybe I would had a little squeeze of fresh lime juice. It's always great in a fresh salsa, and (besides adding a little citrus zing) it keeps the avocados from turning brown.
