Recipe: Avocado and Feta Dip

In an attempt to keep from melting in the heat and humidity, we've been spending lots of time by the pool.  When it's hot and sticky outside, and all you want to do is submerge yourself in gallons of cold water, you need a quick and easy snack that won't keep you slaving away in the kitchen.  It's just a bonus that this one is a crowd pleaser too.  If you want to be really ambitious, grill some chicken, and throw this dip on top to make more of a traditional meal.  Even if you're not feeling up to grilling chicken, this one is great served with plenty of tortilla chips and an icy cold drink.
