Avocado Feta Salsa

Every Sunday, Jesse and I wake up, make a pot of tea and some breakfast and then find an old movie on TV to watch. And every Sunday, you can guarantee there will be SOME old movie on. Our recent viewings have been Jurassic Park, Apollo 13, Mighty Ducks, Back to the Future, American Pie and Jaws. This morning, it’s Independence Day. It’s funny – I would normally not think to sit down and watch any of these movies, but I love our Sunday morning movie dates. And it’s always fun to be surprised with our feature film. No matter how tacky! *hehe*

What does this have to do with Avocado Feta Salsa? Absolutely nothing! *hah* I am just typing up this blog post during our Sunday morning movie date and I thought to mention our fun little tradition :) Do you have any fun weekend traditions?

As for this Avocado Feta Salsa – it’s amazing. My friend Rosanne brought it to our last book club meeting and I devoured it. It was quite embarrassing, as I inhaled more than my fair share. But I could not stop eating it – it was so addictive! It’s really easy to throw together and is best served with tortilla chips, pita chips or melba toasts. It also makes a nice addition to a sandwich. 

Hope you all have a very happy Sunday!


  • 4 roma tomatoes; chopped with seeds removed 
  • 2 tablespoons of finely chopped red onion
  • 2 cloves of garlic; minced (or more if you love garlic)
  • 1/2 cup of crumbled feta cheese
  • 4 tablespoons of chopped cilantro
  • 3 tablespoons of red wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon of dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 2 large avocados

Note: if you don’t want to use Roma tomatoes, you can use cherry or grape tomatoes (about 20) cut in half.

1. Combine all of the ingredients except the avocados in a bowl and chill. Gently stir in the chopped avocado just before serving.

    Yummy. I’m going to remember this for some future meal. Thanks.
    Our weekend tradition (well, we’ve been doing it for about a year) is to go out looking for birds. Sometimes we head north to Oak Hammock Marsh, sometimes southeast to the Sandilands, sometimes to places closer to the city like Fort Whyte Alive. It’s amazing the birds you see when you are looking for them.

      What a nice tradition! :) I love it – as you really get out and enjoy the great outdoors and learn about wild life. Sandilands was a place I loved as a kid. I’ve not been to Oak Hammock Marsh in a while. I’ll have to check that out again this summer. I love going to see the birds & ducks at Kildonan Park throughout the summer. :)

    That’s such a nice way to spend a Sunday morning! You’re lucky you’ve managed to find pretty decent movies so far too, I don’t think I’m ever that lucky when I try my chances at finding a movie on TV in the middle of the day! This salsa sounds fantastic, definitely bookmarking it for summer gatherings (or eating all to myself!)

      It’s true! We’ve definitely lucked out on movies thus far :) For some reason, Sunday mornings are good for movies. But Saturday evenings are horrible for TV. *hah*

    i LOVE your sunday morning tradition! i actually have a similar one, but it doesn’t include dayv since he sleeps in on sunday. but i did see that independence day was on this morning!(i watched tangled.) i do love that movie, though. on a similar note, dayv and i will often watch a movie series within a one or two week period. we’ve watched all the jurassic parks, back to the futures, godfathers, matrixes,screams, etc! we love watching movies ;)

    as far as this salsa, it looks delicious! i would totally make this(without the cheese). yummy!!!

      I love watching movie series!!! I’ve not watched the Matrix series in quite some time. I better put that on the list! The Back to the Future ones are so good. And we just watched all of the American Pie movies. Jesse wants to do a Star Wars marathon next. *hehe*

    Haha – that sounds like so much fun. On the weekends, The Boyfriend and I have a tradition of sleeping, then going out for pastries and coffee, and disc golf if the weather is nice enough. :)

    Also, this salsa sounds incredible… love the addition of feta!

    That salsa sounds so fresh and yummy – a perfect appetizer for eating outside in the summer! And its funny, your Sunday morning sounds just like what my Dad does, except his idea of “old” movies is much different than yours (ie. black and white), lol

    I need to get on making the vegan feta I have been meaning to try my hand at- I am with you, I could have totally eaten this entire bowl myslef in one sitting, YAY for book clubs and tasty food :)

    Love old movies – Justin and I can never get enough of the Kill Bill Series, Pulp Fiction or any old school Comedy! xxooxx
