I have made this numerous times for parties; I always leave with an empty bowl. Guests comment on the feta as a different but delicious twist on salsa. Definitely use 4 avocadoes instead of one. Don't use parsley or oregano, but in their place use fresh snipped cilantro. I also add 1 - 2 finely chopped jalapenos (depending on the amount of heat wanted). This recipe is easy to make and sooooo delicious! Read More

At first I made it as written, with the following exceptions as per other reviews: 1) Used 2 avocados, not just 1 2) Used cilantro instead of parsley. I also used about 4 cloves of garlic that I roasted the other day instead of one raw minced clove. I let it marinade...the flavor was good...I liked the taste of the red wine vinegar. But something was lacking, there wasn't enough "bite" for me in it. And I don't really see what the feta added besides calories; it added no extra flavor or texture that was necessary. So I added about 1/2 can corn and 3/4 can black beans. Now I have something to munch on! I will make it again, but with corn and beans in place of feta. Read More

This recipe rocks! Added cilantro instead of the parsley and a bit of fresh squeezed lemon. In my opinion, you can't have salsa without cilantro. Much much more tasty that guacamole! Read More

I made this for a 4th of July gathering, noting the numerous 5-star reviews, and received a unanimous thumbs-up. I would probably never have come up with this combination of ingredients on my own, but it works! Definitely go with the cilantro over the oregano/parsley. The beauty of this recipe is that you really don't have to follow the ingredient quantities too closely. I just kept adding (and tasting, naturally!) until I had the desired amount, adjusting the seasoning accordingly. This one's a keeper! Read More

Great salsa! I added cilantro (about 1/3 c)instead of parsley. I also sprinkled a bit of lemon juice. The oregano and red wine vinegar were suprisingly tasty in this salsa. Will make again!!! Read More

This stuff is awesome!!! I make it for almost every gathering I go to. It is ALWAYS requested. The only change I make is omitting the parsley and oregano and adding cilantro instead. It gives it more of an authentic salsa taste. Read More

YUM. I made this for the girls and work and it was devoured. I used 3 avocados minced garlic and fresh lemon juice instead of the olive oil. I also added a fresh finely chopped seeded jalepeno pepper. It was a very nice change from the ordinary salsa! Read More

LOVE THIS!! I make it way too much but can never get enough. Some nights my husband and I pop open a bottle of wine and just have this for dinner. Instead of the fresh parsely and oregano I use fresh basil. Read More

I love this recipe! I do not have fresh parsley or oregano on hand usually, but works fine with bottled seasonings too. The fresh taste of the avocado and feta together is wonderful. I get a long baguette bread slice it thin, baste it with olive oil and garlic and bake on 400 for 10 minutes, this is how we like to eat our avocado feta salsa! Read More
