We are assuming you have garlic, sea salt, freshly ground black pepper, butter, and olive oil. If not, be sure to add them to your list!


About an hour before dinner (or even a day or two before), grill the corn, peach, and three slices of pineapple for the salsa. Chop them up, reserve the juices, add the 1/4 cup chopped Vidalia onion, and set aside in a bowl. Make a dressing from the olive oil, lime juice, the juice accumulated from the pineapple and peach, and salt and pepper. Mix in the chopped vegetables and fruits, add hot sauce to taste, and set aside. 

Go ahead and make yourself a margarita to sip on while you gather your ingredients for the pico de gallo. Take a gulp or two of your drink, and then dice the tomatoes and the 1/2 white onion, mince the garlic, and toss everything together in a bowl, adding as much minced jalapeño and lemon juice as you like. Season with salt and pepper, and set aside to let the flavors marry.

With about 20 minutes left until dinner, heat up a saucepan with olive oil. Place two corn tortillas with a generous helping of feta cheese between them in the pan. While the quesadilla cooks, peel and slice the avocados. Remove the quesadillas from the pan and cut into quarters. Serve with a dollop of sour cream and a big heap of pico de gallo and sliced avocado on top. If you can, eat it outside.
