I found some lovely tomatoes at Costco last week. You know the ones, they are about the size of a fifty cent piece and have a cute little vine attached. They are always flavorful and I have a hard time resisting a package of them. When I rounded the corner at the end of the aisle I was facing a bag of avocados that looked spendid. Part of them were starting to ripen and the others were still quite firm.
When I left, I had the makings of a great salsa or salad. Today the ingredients were going to become a salad. I had run across another very easy recipe in Cooking Light's 5 Ingredient, 15 Minute recipe collection.
I did vary the recipe just a smidge. I used the tomatoes from Costco which are larger than the grape tomatoes. I used Feta that had a garlic and herbs. The recipe called for feta with basil and sun-dried tomato. I used two avocados. I actually liked not having another herb compete with the oregano.
