Avocado Toast

This healthy appetizer is so good, you may even want to make it with a salad or a side of Creamy Tomato and Basil Penne Pasta for an easy dinner idea during the week!

Toasted baguette bread, avocado, cherry tomatoes, basil and fresh mozzarella make up these bite-sized appetizers. Drizzle with a little balsamic reduction glaze that you can easily make yourself or you can pick up a bottle at the store, like I did!

Avocado Toast is a new-to-me treat that I can’t get enough of! The creaminess of the healthy avocado smashed with fresh black pepper and sea salt on a crisp, slightly warm piece of toast is to die for! You can then eat it as is or add all kinds of different toppings to make it unique.

I loved this quick and easy appetizer so much that I even made it on Good Day Marketplace where I share recipes, tips, and tricks each week! It really is that good!

caprese salad, avocado toast, appetizer How do you make avocado toast?

It’s easy! Just make sure to pick ripe avocados that aren’t too hard and not too mushy – right in the middle is perfect.

Cut the avocado in half, remove pit, and scoop the flesh into a bowl. Add the lemon juice and sea salt, to taste. Mash the ingredients together with a fork, keeping the texture slightly chunky. Spread half the mash onto each piece of toast. I like to add a little cracked black pepper and sea salt right on top.

What goes well with avocado on toast?

I like this recipe combination of tomatoes, mozzarella and basil that are the basis of a Caprese Salad,  but the options are limitless! Add smoked salmons, bean sprouts, any veggie is perfect right on top! How can you tell if an avocado is bad?

Cut open the avocado with a knife. If it’s dark green near the skin and pale green near the stone, it’s ripe. But if the meat is separated, stringy, and brown or black, it’s rotten. If the meat of a ripe avocado is exposed to air, it’ll brown quickly, but you can skim off the top layer and still use the avocado. Just add a little freshly squeezed lemon juice right on top if you won’t be using the avocado right away. It will keep it nice and green! 
With tomato and fresh herb season here, this would be a great choice for a healthy appetizer that you can make with ingredients that are mostly homegrown!
