The Chemistry of Feta Guacamole

The magic of this guacamole recipe lies in the chemical reactions between its fresh ingredients. The lime juice not only adds a zesty flavor but also helps prevent the oxidation of the avocados, keeping them green and vibrant. The acidity from the lime and white wine vinegar also slightly breaks down the onions and tomatoes, enhancing their flavors and making them more palatable. Meanwhile, the feta cheese introduces a complexity that balances the creaminess of the avocados and the acidity of the other ingredients.

How do you make feta guacamole?

  1. Wash and slice the cherry tomatoes into quarters. Place them in a medium bowl
  2. Chop the red onion into tiny bits and add it to the bowl. I love to use a handheld food processor to chop these really fine.
  3. Grate the garlic & add with the tomatoes and onion
  4. Squeeze the fresh lime juice over the top and stir all the ingredients together
  5. Add the vinegar and stir again
  6. Chop up the cilantro and pour it into the bowl
  7. Dice the ripe avocados (don’t mash avocados) and place them in the bowl. Stir everything together.
  8. Top it all with the feta crumbles and fold it in.
  9. Cover the bowl and place in the fridge to chill for 30 minutes. This allows the flavors to meld.
  10. Serve with tortilla chips! Add a little salt or hot sauce if needed.

Storage Tips

To store, cover the leftover dip with plastic wrap, pressing it directly onto the surface to prevent air exposure, and refrigerate. It’s best enjoyed within 24 hours.

While guacamole is best enjoyed fresh, this version can be kept in the refrigerator for up to a day without significant loss of quality, thanks to the acidity which helps preserve the color and flavor.

Making Ahead

If preparing beforehand, you can mix all ingredients except the avocados and feta. Add these just before serving to maintain the best texture and freshness.

FAQs

Feta cheese adds a salty, tangy contrast to the creamy texture of the avocados, enhancing the overall flavor profile with its briny richness. It also provides a slightly crumbly texture that complements the smoothness of the guacamole.

You can prepare the guacamole a few hours before, but it’s best enjoyed fresh. If you need to store it, press plastic wrap directly onto the surface of the guacamole to minimize air exposure and refrigerate.

The lime juice in the recipe helps prevent browning, but for extra protection, ensure the plastic wrap touches the guacamole surface directly to reduce oxidation. The acidity and the physical barrier of the wrap help keep the guacamole vibrant. Also, make sure you are using fresh avocado.

If feta isn’t your style, you can try substituting it with another crumbly cheese like cotija, which is similar to salty feta, or even goat cheese for a different flavor twist.
