Avocado Feta Dip

Avocado-Feta-Dip-5

St. Patrick’s Day is on Sunday so this week we are going GREEN! We have to celebrate because we are the PEAS:) Green is our color and I love everything green. We have some fun green recipes AND a fun green giveaway for you this week! Make sure you visit the blog tomorrow to enter the giveaway, you don’t want to miss this one!

We are starting green week with an easy Avocado Feta Dip. And when I say easy, I mean EASY! Like this dip can be made in 5 minutes. There is no cooking involved, you just throw all of the ingredients into a food processor or blender and magic happens!

Avocado-Feta-Dip-3

Our Creamy Avocado Yogurt Dip is one of my all-time favorite dips. I love the stuff. I wanted to make that dip last week for an afternoon snack, but Caleb hogged all of our Greek yogurt. I was in the mood for dipping and had avocados to use up, so I looked in our fridge and saw feta cheese. Bingo! A new favorite dip was born!

Avocado-Feta-Dip-6

This dip is thick, creamy, and flavorful. The feta cheese adds the perfect amount of saltiness and blends in with the avocado perfectly! They are a match made in heaven.

I served the Avocado Feta Dip with pita chips and cut up veggies. Josh, Caleb, and I spent the afternoon snacking away! This dip was a hit with the entire family.

If you are looking for an easy dip recipe for parties or every day snacking, make this Avocado Feta Dip! Oh, and the lime juice keeps the dip from turning brown, so you can make it in advance-which makes it perfect for entertaining. I put our leftover dip in the fridge and it was bright green the next day!

And speaking of green, don’t forget to get festive on St. Patrick’s Day by eating this tasty green Avocado Feta Dip! The leprechauns might try to snatch it from you, so be careful:)

    Hey, I’ve got ripe avocados and used up the last of the yogurt on tartar sauce last night! But I have feta–so I can make this.

    One problem–the pigs ate up all the cilantro.

    Off to the store.

    Thanks!

    You had me until I saw “cilantro.” Can’t stand the stuff; when I try to eat it, it’s like I am eating dish soap (you know, the stuff you keep at the sink when you want to hand wash a dish instead of putting it in the dishwasher). Any suggestions as to what to put in its place because I really want to give this a go.
