Good Eats: Feta-Avocado Salsa

 Last night we hosted a fundraising dinner that is part of a local charity's annual "Dining With Friends" drive. The idea, at least originally, was that groups of friends would get together at each others homes for dinner and then all of the individual dinner parties would come together at one final party, The Red Party, for desserts, drinks, and dancing. As the event has grown, many people host their dinners ahead of the main event, which is what we opted to do. The theme for this year's Red Party is "Salsa!" (as in the dance, not the dish.) We played off of that theme and had an entree bar with various meats, cheeses, and shells, Spanish rice, re-fried and black beans, and a host of Mexican appetizers. One of the biggest "hits" was this super easy dish, that is great with pita triangles or plain old tortilla chips. Thanks go to one of my neighbors for sharing this recipe with me a while back! The amount here is perfect for dinner with a few couples, and can easily be multiplied for larger gatherings.

Feta-Avocado Salsa
4 plum tomatoes, chopped
2 Tablespoons Red Onion, finely chopped
