Appetizers / Snacks
There’s much more to this guacamole ingredient than its creamy texture. Here, diced avocado mixes with cilantro, scallions, lime and garlic and tops crisp grilled bread for an easy bruschetta appetizer. This versatile superfood fruit berry (yup) can also be used in dips, salads, smoothies, and even baked into brownies (just to name a few). Plus, it delivers a whole host of health benefits.
Preheat grill to medium, or preheat broiler to high with rack 6 inches from element.
Combine cilantro, scallions, lime juice, 2 Tbsp. oil, and garlic for the topping; season with salt and pepper, then gently stir in avocado.
Grill baguette slices until toasted and grill marks appear, 2–3 minutes per side, or broil slices on a baking sheet until toasted, 2–3 minutes per side.
Serve topping on baguette slices.
