Feta Cheese and Avocado Hummus Dip: Chickpeas blended with feta cheese and avocado. A.K.A. My favorite ingredients blended as one!
Can you believe I’m posting about feta cheese? ‘Cause, you know, I NEVER talk about feta… SYKE! (Do people still say that?! I’m so 90’s…)
Props to me; I lasted exactly 1 week before mentioning feta cheese, again. I hope you didn’t miss those Feta Cheese-Covered Olives last week, but if you did, here’s your chance to fix that.
I don’t get it when people say “EW” about feta. Like, are you for reals?! And, what do you mean “it smells!”? It’s CHEESE! All cheese smells!! Am I right or am I RIGHT?
But, hey, how about this weather?! I know it’s totally cliche to mention the weather, but you have to admit that Summer just got really real. I was out there 5 minutes before I started to sweat, and I don’t sweat! I really don’t. I am the person that you hate at the gym. I run on the treadmill for close to an hour and then walk off with three drips of sweat. Which reminds me… am I even burning anything?
Because today is another 150% humidity day, I wanted to share something delicious and cold with you. It’s this Feta Cheese and Avocado Hummus Dip.
You know, I’m really good at making dip(s). I find things in the fridge that look like they can be blended, then I place them in a blender and have my way with ‘em. If it’s fruit, I name it a smoothie; if it’s savory, I throw chickpeas in there and call it hummus. My dad used to blend everything, too, and I remember one time he put a mango in the blender and gave it a whirl… Poor blender. Dad didn’t know that mangoes had a pit…
He’s foreign – give him a break.
This hummus dip is easily one of my new favorites. It’s guacamole meets hummus. SO GOOD! I ate it like nobody was watching… the scene was quite barbaric.
But, this has everything a great dip needs and it tastes like the ultimate treat! Served with Stacy’s Pita Chips (they didn’t pay me to say that – I just lurrrve their chips!), this deliciousness needs to come into your life!
