Recommendations:

๐Ÿ“Œ For party-goers: serve in mini cups

๐Ÿ“ŒFor my dairy-challenged folks: I used this vegan Feta – Violife

๐Ÿ“ŒYou can always add red wine vinegar or lime juice for a touch of acidity.

๐Ÿ“ŒStore in an airtight container for up to 3 days. The 1st thing to go “bad” would likely be the avocado, so feel free to add in the avocado upon serving.
