Chica’s “Move Over Tomato” Avocado Bruschetta

Leave a comment

For Greek Easter last week I wanted to make a fun and colorful appetizer. I have a small family (only 6), so I didn’t have to make a lot. I had some avocados and tomatoes and thought I’d mix ’em up and make a fun salad to top the whole wheat bruschetta (toasted crusty bread rubbed with garlic). It’s super simple and only takes a few minutes to throw together.

Tip: I spooned the avocado/tomato mixture into the hollowed avocado halves for fun. I had seen this done on a family vacation a few years ago in Maine with something that I ordered and thought it worked well with this recipe. :-)
