Creamy avocados, mixed with fresh ingredients like garlic and citrus: Guacamole is irresistible! I grew up with a very traditional Mexican guacamole, but I love to play with my foods and fuse two different cultures. If I had to favor one cuisine besides Mexican food, it would most definitely be Greek. I love the flavors of the garlic, lemon, olives and oregano present in a lot of the dishes. MORE + LESS -

    Drain the red onions and add them to the guacamole. Stir well to combine; taste for salt. Cover with plastic wrap, pushing the plastic down until it makes contact with the guacamole. Set aside for 30 minutes.
  • 4
    Preheat a nonstick pan to medium heat for 5 minutes. Brush both sides of the pita bread and toast in pan for 2 minutes per side or until crispy. Remove from heat and let cool. Slice into 8 wedges.

    Before serving, top the guacamole with crumbled feta cheese. Serve right away or keep covered with plastic wrap and chilled until ready to serve.
  • To extend the shelf life of garlic, remove the skins from the cloves and transfer to container. Cover with olive oil, seal with a tight lid and store in refrigerator. Use in any recipes that require fresh garlic.
