Give Guacamole A Greek Spin With Two Ingredients
The creamy texture of avocados serves as the main canvas for guacamole, so it's easy to change the flavor profile from Mexican to Mediterranean with just a couple changes.
Kalamata olives and feta cheese give guacamole a delicious Greek makeover, adding flavor and textural enhancements to the smooth avocado dip.
Chopped kalamata olives are packed with umami, while crumbled feta is salty, sour, and savory, giving the guacamole a delightfully sharp flavor and extra creaminess.
You should also swap out the Mexican citrus, peppers, and herbs with Mediterranean counterparts. Try lemons, roasted red peppers, and parsley instead.
Because olives, roasted red peppers, and feta come in jars or containers full of preservative liquids, it's important to drain the liquid completely before adding them to guacamole.
