Here’s a quick and easy appetizer idea that is perfect for any occasion! Caprese Salad Avocado Toast is one of my new favorites and it will become one of your favorites, too!
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!
With tomato and fresh herb season coming up, this would be a great choice for a healthy appetizer that you can make with ingredients that are mostly homegrown!
