I just LOVE to entertain. Do you?
During the holidays, I like to put a twist to “normal” appetizers. Since I’m doing the Latin theme this year, I made this amazing avocado bruschetta.
The avocado cubes are folded into this sauce made of cilantro, garlic, vinegar, parsley and olive oil called chimichurri. So light and so delicious!
Festive Avocado Bruschetta
2 Tbs. lemon juice
2 Tbs. red wine vinegar
2 cloves garlic, minced (1 Tbs).
3/4 tsp. sea salt
1/2 tsp. red pepper flakes
1/2 tsp. dried oregano
1/4 tsp. ground black pepper
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsely
2 avocados, peeled, pitted and cubed
6 1/2 inch slices of grainy ciabatta bread, toasted ( I got this great harvest 12 grain bread from Whole Foods)
Combine lemon juice, red wine vinegar, garlic, salt, red pepper flakes, oregano, and black pepper in a small bowl.
Whisk in olive oil, then add cilantro and parsley. Fold in avocados.
Spoon avocado mixture onto toast slices and serve.
