Caprese Avocado Toast
Caprese salad meets avocado toast! This is the BEST avocado toast and it's so easy to make! It's great anytime of day!
Yield: Serves 4
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 10 minutes
2 ripe avocados
2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
Sea salt and black pepper, to taste
4 slices bread, toasted
4 ounces fresh mozzarella, sliced and cut into pieces, to fit the bread
1 cup grape tomatoes, halved
1/4 cup basil leaves, roughly chopped
Balsamic Glaze, for drizzling
1. Cut the avocados in half, remove pit, and scoop the flesh into a small bowl. Add the lemon juice, sea salt, and black pepper, to taste. With a fork, mash the ingredients together, keeping the texture slightly chunky.
2. Spread the mashed avocado evenly onto toasted bread slices. Top with fresh mozzarella slices, tomatoes, and basil. Season with additional salt and pepper, if desired. Drizzle with balsamic glaze and serve immediately.
Note-I like to use whole grain bread. If you need the recipe to be gluten-free, use gluten-free bread. If you don't have grape tomatoes, tomato slices will work too!
