This Fresh Avocado Feta Salsa is a Delicious Game Changer!
Does your family love feta cheese and fresh avocado?
These are two of my favorite foods separately, and if you pair them together as a creative appetizer dip, you get an unbelievably awesome snack you’ll be excited to serve at your next shindig!
It’s like a Mediterranean salsa mash-up that’s super yummy. Plus, I love that it’s super easy and simple to throw together at the last minute, and it doesn’t require a ton of effort, yet tastes fancy!
Love these FRESH tasting ingredients!
Of course, I love the avocado and feta combo, but then when you add in the onion, garlic, fresh parsley, and lemon juice, the whole mixture is beaming with lots of bright flavors. I added half a chopped jalapeno pepper, but you could always add more, or leave it out if no spice is preferred. I used parsley, but other fresh herbs like cilantro or basil would be yummy as well. This is something you can really get creative with and make your own and adjust to taste.
Hip Tip: I recommend you choose avocados on the firmer side if possible instead of super soft ones that may make this salsa mushy. Just something to keep in mind 🙂
Just chop up all the ingredients, mix together and serve with your favorite chips, crackers or veggies! It’s that easy.
Serve this salsa in any smaller type bowl, but if you’re interested in mine, I’m using this pretty mortar and pestle for serving as pictured in these photos.
If you plan to make this salsa a little bit ahead of time, I would leave out the avocados until right before serving to avoid browning.

I served mine with club crackers and melba toasts, and it was perfect basketball watching food over the weekend. You could also serve with some cheese whisps, celery, or another veggie dipper for any low carb eaters out there. This is such a great snack to share with friends! We enjoyed it and I know you will, too.
P.S. I would try to enjoy this within the first 24 hours of refrigeration, as avocado has a tendency to brown–but that’s assuming you couldn’t eat it all in one sitting like we did–ha!
