The Dinner Bell ~ Three Little Pigs

Once upon a time, there were three little pigs.....Biker Pig, Daisy Pig and Scout Pig.  In the summertime, Daisy Pig made a delicious dish......that they ate all up.....just the three of them.....in one setting.....even though it serves eight or more.

Thought the pigs at your house might like it.....

Avocado Salsa

THE STUFF:

2 ~ Avocados.....diced.
4 ~ Roma Tomato's......diced.
2 ~ Garlic cloves.....minced.  (Fresh is best, but I typically use the jarred stuff.  Faster and easier.)
2T ~ Olive Oil
3T ~ Vinegar
4oz. ~ Feta Cheese
1/2 c ~ Red Onion.....diced.  (My Pampered Chef Food Chopper, that magically arrived at my door three weeks ago.....is my new best friend.  Don't worry your buns, Sweet Biscuit.....I am not really cheating on you.)

WHIPPIN' IT UP:

~Put all the stuff in a bowl, and mix well.....but don't mix to the point that the avocado is mushed.....leave a little chunk consistency to it.

~Serve with Pita Chips.....recipe below.....or just grab a bag at the Piggly~ Wiggly.

Homemade Pita Chips

THE STUFF:

~Whole package of pita pockets.....(I get the whole wheat kind).
~Pam spray.
~Bit of Kosher salt, or salt seasoning of choice

WHIPPIN' IT UP:

~Cut the pita's into wedges.....like a pizza.

~Separate the wedges, so there are two pieces.

~Lay out on a cookie sheet.

~Spray with Pam.

~Sprinkle with salt stuff.

~Broil until brown-ish.

~Use to dip Avocado Salsa.

You might want to make the chips FIRST.....because if you make the salsa first, you will have to taste it.....and keep checking that it's okay for everyone.  Then you'll look down, and there is no more.....so you won't need to make the pita chips.

Don't be like me.....I'm on Weight Watchers....and gained a pound back this week.  It's the avocado salsa's fault.....and the stupid ice cream maker we got.

Ho hum.....

.....but the pigs lived happily ever after.

The end.
