In this Greek avocado feta guacamole, fresh avocado is tossed around with tomato, garlic, red onion and feta cheese! Get your chips ready!

This is what happens when you buy a Costco bag of avocados. Of course they went from rock hard to ripe in three days and I had six super ripe avocados on my hands. Good thing I can eat guac by the bucketful.

Besides smashing it on toast, I wanted to make was this fresh feta guacamole. It’s not an original recipe creation, but since the very first time I tried it a couple years ago I’ve been meaning to make it and post it to share it with all of you.

One thing I’ve learned over the past years of blogging is that there are some people who don’t like the idea of non-traditional ingredients added to guacamole. Once I was slammed and posted to a guacamole-hall-of-shame facebook page for putting blue cheese and bacon in guacamole. So all the guacamole purists out there… you might want to turn your heads. 😉

A couple Memorial Day’s ago my friend Lynne brought this Greek avocado feta guacamole to our other friend, Nichole’s house. It was literally gone in 3.2 seconds. It’s so fresh and the feta is so unexpected and really delicious.

How To Get Ripe Avocados To LAST:

The trick to storing ripe avocados so they last is a no-brainer, it’s easy and effective and has saved me SO much money. First  buy hard to the touch, bright green avocados and allow them to ripen on the counter. Once they are black, soft to the touch (NOT squishy) pop them into the fridge. Because here is where they will last for quite a few days! You guys this has changed my life and I owe this trick to my sisters. No more wasted avocados!

Next, squeeze in half a lemon.

Then give it a quick toss to coat the avocado in lemon so it won’t oxidize and turn that gross brown-green color.
