Avocado Toast

Avocado Toast

Avocado toast is the perfect heart-healthy breakfast or snack, and ours — garnished with fresh cucumber, radish and watercress — may have you swearing off jam and hazelnut spread forever.  


Tomato salsa:
1 tablespoon mint, fresh, stemmed, finely chopped
1/4 lemon, zested and juiced
1 tomato, finely diced
1 teaspoon white wine vinegar
Avocado spread:
1 avocado
2 tablespoons lowfat yogurt
1/4 lemon, juiced
30 pieces toasted crostini or melba toast
Pinch of cayenne pepper
1/4 cucumber, ribboned with a veg peeler
1 radish, thinly sliced
1/2 cup watercress (optional)
In a small bowl, mix together mint, juice and zest from 1/4 lemon, tomato and white wine vinegar. Set aside.
Halve the avocado, remove the stone and scoop the flesh into a bowl. Add the yogurt and the remaining lemon juice. Mash everything with a fork.
Spread avocado mixture evenly between the toasts (about 1 teaspoon each). Sprinkle with a little cayenne pepper. Top with 1 cucumber ribbon and 1 radish slice. Spoon tomato salsa on top.
