Tomatoes, avocado and feta combine well to add flavor and good fat to this easy grilled chicken recipe. Best served with a side of grilled vegetables – just lightly season with salt, pepper and a small amount of olive oil and throw them on the grill!

Make the salsa right before serving, and avoid refrigerating it—the texture of the tomato will soften and avocado can brown.
