Author: Gerry S. Recipe Provided By the California Avocado Commission from a consumer submission
Creamy avocado is mixed with a few special ingredients to make this Italian appetizer.
1 crusty french baguette
2 ripe, Fresh California Avocados
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon fresh minced garlic
1 Tablespoon fresh chopped basil
Heat the grill until very hot. Cut eight slices of the bread about a half inch thick and on the diagonal. Drizzle one side with some olive oil. Place on the grill and toast for about two minutes each side. Don't leave them as they burn very quickly! Once they're toasted, leave to the side and make the avocado. Place the avocados in a bowl and mash with a fork. Add the lemon juice, garlic, basil, salt and pepper. Stir gently to combine. Spoon onto each bruschetta slice. Drizzle some more olive oil over the avocado and serve at once.
As with all fruits and vegetables, wash avocados before cutting. Check out our tips for how to choose and use California Avocados.
