I’ll say it again – I’m addicted to avocados this summer. Every which way! In guacamole, on sandwiches, sliced plain with a pinch of sea salt. But this…to die for.
Avocado mashed with green onion and cilantro. So simple, so fresh and the BEST appetizer! I served ours on a multi-grain baguette that I drizzled with some olive oil, then toasted. I first had this years ago when my sister served it at a dinner at my mom’s house. I can see why she said she made it all the time!
Serving Size: 2
4 slices from a baguette
1 green onion
1 tablespoon fresh cilantro, chopped
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Lay the slices of bread on a baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil. Toast in the oven until they start to turn golden, about 5-8 minutes.
Meanwhile, cut and scoop out the insides of an avocado and place in a small bowl. Dice the green onion, using the white and green parts and add to the bowl. Add the cilantro and a pinch of sea salt and mash everything together with a fork.
Evenly distribute the avocado mixture onto each slice of toast. Serve immediately.
