I had good friends coming over for a lasagna dinner and I needed a quick appetizer to go along with it. The garlicky bruschetta from the week before had been on my mind and I figured it would be the perfect starter. I added an avocado to the mix which added some texture and made the bruschetta creamy. It was a hit, even with the little ones.
Garlicky Tomato & Avocado Bruschetta
3 tomatoes, chopped
1 avocado, chopped
3 cloves of garlic, chopped
4 TB olive oil
1 tsp balsamic vinegar
bunch of basil, chopped
olive oil for drizzling
Slice the baguette on the diagonal and place on a baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and bake until toasted.
Mix the ingredients for the brushcetta. Let stand for 10 minutes. Top the toasted baguettes with the mixture and enjoy!
