I first had this Greek guacamole recipe at a party, then it turned up in our school’s cookbook, and the rest is history!  I’ve been making it for my friends and family ever since! This recipe takes a traditional Mexican recipe and gives it a Mediterranean twist! Avocados are a native Mexican crop, so guacamole isn’t part of traditional Mediterranean cuisines. However, I personally think the recipe is genius! By making a few ingredient swaps you end up with a Greek style guacamole that is perfect! This is one of those recipes that I always bring, if I’m asked to bring an appetizer, because it’s familiar yet unlike the guacamole recipes most people have tasted. One thing that is up for debate is whether this is a dip or a salad. It’s much chunkier than your typical Mexican Guacamole. It is great with tortilla chips, pita chips, and pretzel chips. It is also amazing on top of a burger or a grilled chicken sandwich. It is perfect in a gyro or served along side grilled kabobs. There is no wrong way to eat this dip. It is addicting, versatile, and absolutely foolproof!

Choose avocados that are ripe but still firm. Cut ripe avocados in half the long way around. Using a knife gently slice through horizontally and then vertical without cutting through the skin. Using a spoon scoop the diced avocado chunks into a medium bowl. Repeat this with all three medium sized avocados.

Squeeze the juice of one whole lime and one whole lemon over the diced avocado and toss. This adds flavor and keeps the fruit from browning.

Give it a toss. You can mash avocados. You don’t want to mash all of the avocado, the just enough to give avocados creamy texture, even though you want to keep it a chunky dip.

Many years ago I had the pleasure of making Greek Guacamole for Ree Drummund of The Pioneer Woman website and she told me that this dip was “life changing”. I think she might have even put a version of this appetizer on her website. So if that isn’t enough to convince you that you should make Greek Guacamole; I am not sure what you want from me here people!

  • Dressing Shortcut: The original version of this dip uses 1/2 cup Wishbone Italian dressing, 2 tablespoons lime juice, 1/2 teaspoon cumin, 1/4 cup chopped cilantro. I decided to change the dressing because Wishbone salad dressing may not be readily available everywhere and I wanted you to be able to make this with whole ingredients. However, if you want a shortcut I am here for you combine the above ingredients and use for dressing.
  • Garlic: I think I have mentioned before that my husband is not a fan of garlic so I always go light on the garlic in recipes. If you are a fan, then I approve of you adding up to four cloves garlic in this recipe.
  • Storage: This is best served the day you prepare it. If you need to make it earlier in the day, add toppings, and cover tightly with plastic wrap to prevent any browning, store in a airtight container, and refrigerate.
  • Greek guacamole is best served with tortilla chips, pita chip, warm pita bread, or the pretzel chips are good as well.
  • Alternative toppings and add ins: Serving the feta cheese on the side is an option if you do not eat dairy. Red pepper flakes are perfect if you prefer everything spicy; add in 1/4 teaspoon. Switch the black olives out for chunks of kalamata olives. I have also added chunks of red peppers for extra crunch and color. Fresh parsley chopped and added as a garnish also adds more of a greek twist.
  • Serving suggestions: This dip is also amazing served as a topping for grilled chicken, or on a burger, or as a condiment for a gyro sandwich. I love to serve this along side chicken or steak kebobs.

First, I would like to address my atrocious finger nails? I had a dip manicure about a month ago, and it just killed my nails. I have been trying to keep them hidden. Unfortunately there isn’t a budget for hand models at Eat2gather, so you will have to endure the grotesque nail beds a bit longer. OK. Now that I have that off my chest. This recipe is so versatile, I have plopped it on top of lettuce with some sliced chicken and Voila I had an amazing light healthy dinner!

I would love to hear from you if you make this recipe! Pin it. Give it some stars below in the recipe card, leave me a comment. Thanks so much for being here, Sheila
