{avocado, feta & tomato salsa}

I'm a sucker for a good salsa.

But before I go into my latest favorite salsa...
let me share with you something first:

Being nine months pregnant is grand...except for the part where I want to eat a huge pile of food {growing baby and all} but then I feel stuffed after eating half.  Like last night, I really wanted a 3rd bratwurst {yes 3rd!} but I knew if I ate it would not be able to sit upright for the rest of the evening.  I would be in "feet-on-the-coffee-table-reclining-just-so-I-can-breath" mode.  

Which I sort of ended up being in anyway.
Like every night. 

Back to salsa.  
If you are a lover of avocado like me, you love to chop it up in salads, dips and of course, make delicious guacamole!

Well, for today's post, I thought I would share a view of a delicious feta, tomato and avocado salsa...which can be eaten as an appetizer with a fork, or a salsa with some tortilla chips.
Both ways are delish.

You will need:  2 avocados (chopped) 4 roma tomatoes (chopped) 1 small onion (chopped) fresh cilantro, feta cheese (4oz crumbled) 1/4 cup olive oil, 2 TB red wine vinegar, a pinch of cumin, and salt to taste.

Gently combine all ingredients and serve chilled, with or without the chips!

Oh, and go ahead, have that 3rd bratwurst.

Unless you're nine months pregnant...
then you might want to stick to the salsa.
