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.
First start by carefully running a knife around the length of the avocado, twist open and then remove the pit.
Next, take paring knife and make horizontal and vertical cuts.
Then use a spoon and scoop out the avocado and place it into a medium bowl.
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.
Nice up half of a medium red onion and add it to the bowl with the avocados.
Then mince and add a clove of garlic.
Grab about a 1/4 cup of fresh parsley…
…give it a chop and throw it into the bowl as well.
Scoop out the seeds of one roma tomato.
…dice it and, you guessed it… add it to the bowl.
Lastly throw in the feta. I eyeball it, somewhere in between a quarter and a half cup.
Season with a little salt and give it a stir, a taste and serve!
This bowl of Greek avocado feta guacamole is for me. Only me. Mu-ha-ha-ha-yum.
Man, I love my job.
Now I’m curious… what do you put in your guac?

THANK YOU in advance for your support!
Anyone who shames you for adding bacon (or blue cheese, for that matter) to ANYTHING deserves to be ignored. I would also add feta to that list. feta 4 life. This sounds incredible.
Love guacamole and this looks like a wonderful recipe. Costco has such great avocadoes, I eat them for almost a week straight once they are ripe enough.
Using this for my Memorial Day get together recipe!
People can snack on it before the burgers come off the grill.
Plus, it doesn’t seem to need to be refrigerated?!? Because everyone got sick on my M-I-L potato salad last year, can’t have that.
Well, this will be gone before it needs to be stuck in the fridge anyhow, right!!
Loving this combo of flavours! Yum!
My guacamole tends to disappear pretty quickly too. My recipe is close to yours. The only changes are I use lime juice, cilantro instead of parsley, I don’t put garlic in mine and I’m a sea salt girl who leaves the seeds in with her tomato.
Might have to try the feta – I’ve got a ripe avocado and some feta in the fridge…
Interesting combo of flavors that look like they should be served up very soon here. I learned from a produce guy that you can keep ripe, unopened avocados in your crisper drawer for about 7-10 days with good results, which is lovely for those Costco quantities. Thanks for a great idea.
I love feta and guacamole, I can’t wait to try combining the two!
I love all versions of guac….traditional and any yummy add-ins! This looks SO delicious, definitely trying it soon.
Oh, I know you mentioned in the step-by-step how much feta to put in but I noticed it is not mentioned in the printable? Thought you might want to add it for those of us who still like to print a paper copy! Ha
Thanks for the heads up Julie! 🙂
Yum! Great flavor combination! Wish I had thought of it 🙂
YUMO! I think I’d have to lower the red onion to less bc my husband hates too much raw red onion, but it looks super delish. I love that it has flat leaf parsley…sounds fresh! I wish I had that bowl to myself right now.
This is a beautiful Avocado salad that we are going to make for our dieting group, the avocados are incredible in this recipe and are great for the body.
I bought two huge bags of avocados to make guac for a party on Saturday. Were any of them ripe by Saturday? No, of course not. I woke up on Sunday with all 8 perfectly ripe. Guess I’ll be making this!! 🙂
This basically has all of my favorite ingredients in it. I can’t blame you for shoveling this into your mouth!!! Making this SOON.
I enjoy eating guacamole but I have never thought about adding feta before. What a great idea! I always have a large container of feta because I normally add it to my salads, but now I have another reason to eat them! Thanks for sharing this!
Will I get a reply! Hmmmm I think holding my chin.
Any case. Why do the seeds have to be taken out of the tomato. What if I can only get ordinary tomatoes! And can I skip the green stuff – not talking about the avocado.
Hi Judy! Of course I’ll respond… you have great questions! Removing the seeds is a personal preference, I remove them because I don’t want an overly wet and seedy guacamole. Feel free to use any tomatoes you have on hand, I prefer Roma because they are easier to dice. Skipping the parsley is fine too! Enjoy and have a great weekend!
YUM! This combo sounds incredible! SO trying this today.
I think I have a costco run to make…immediately!!
My weekend finished yesterday were I still working. Sunday is a work day here. Sucks!
I think I’m going to be craving this guacamole all day. This looks SO good!
Oh my goodness! I eat avocado toast with feta sprinkled on top once in awhile (I’m lying – it’s a weekly basis type thing). Everyone looks at me like I’m crazy because of the combo but man! Delish! This is an awesome recipe. I can’t wait to try it!
