Step 1In a large bowl, combine tomatoes, avocado, cucumber and shallot. Add vinegar, oil, oregano and pepper. Toss gently. Sprinkle with feta and toss again.
Be sure to buy your avocados a few days early. Look for firm green ones and let them ripen at home. The skin will darken and yield slightly when pressed. Cut the avocado in quarters then pull away from the pit and peel to dice.
