Ingredients

2 Tbsp organic lemon juice

1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp black pepper

4 avocados

2 roma tomatoes, halved and seeded

1/2 red sweet pepper, halved and seeded

1/2 green sweet pepper, halved and seeded

1/2 yellow onion, peeled and quartered

Crushed red pepper, to taste

1/3 cup feta cheese crumbles

Instructions

Heat grill or grill pan over medium-high heat.

In a small bowl combine lemon juice, 2 Tbsp olive oil, 1/4 tsp salt, and 1/4 tsp black pepper.

Slice avocados in half and remove pits, leaving skin intact.

Brush lemon juice mixture onto flesh and skin side of each avocado to prevent sticking on grill.

In a small bowl toss tomatoes, sweet peppers, and onions with 1/4 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp black pepper, and remaining 2 Tbsp olive oil.

Grill avocados, flesh sides down, for 1 to 2 minutes or until dark grill marks form.

Flip and continue cooking for 1 to 2 minutes more. Place avocado halves on a serving plate.

Grill remaining vegetables for 3 to 4 minutes on each side or until charred and tender.

Transfer vegetables to food processor. Add crushed red pepper. Pulse gently to form chunky relish.

Top each avocado half with vegetable relish; sprinkle with feta cheese. Drizzle with remaining lemon juice mixture.
