Chilled Avocado & Feta Cheese Salsa

This is another summer-time favorite.  It came to me by way of a friend at a party, and we all could not get enough of it.  Fresh garlic and cilantro, sweet tomatoes and creamy avocado.  It was served with pita chips on the side, but I have since  enjoyed it  with pretzel and  tortilla chips and my new favorite, rice crackers.   The rice crackers make it a dish to be enjoyed by those that are gluten-free.  I found these amazing crackers,  even my kids,  love at Costco (see description below). I have also tried Wasabi rice crackers.  
  • 1 lb. grape tomatoes, quartered
  • 1  small red onion, minced
  • 1/2 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 avocado, sliced
  • 4 oz. container of feta cheese, crumbled
  • drizzle of extra-virgin  olive oil
  • salt and freshly ground pepper
  1. In a bowl, gently stir together tomatoes, avocado, onion, and garlic.
  2. Mix in cilantro and garlic. Stir in feta. 
  3. Drizzle with olive oil
  4. Salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Cover, and chill for 2 hours.
The crackers are by Crunchmaster (7 Ancient Grains (Brown Rice, Sorghum, Quinoa, Sesame, Millet, Flax & Amaranth)...oven baked to a crunchy perfection! Just a hint of sea salt added to make this whole grain cracker a tasty, low sodium, gluten free snack option!
