I love going to Zanatto's, a small and cozy local family market. They have a deli section and a really good salad bar as well. More importantly, they have an excellent produce section. Everything is fresh and I especially love the variety and their impeccable display (well, at least at 8 am it is). I always feel so inspired when I'm there. And today I was inspired by these beautiful baby radishes and my good friend, Devina's post on her blog. I love the marriage of the creamy avocado with the spicy radishes and the sweet and sour notes of balsamic on a crunchy toast. Ooh la la...it was super delicious! This would make a perfect light lunch or a gorgeous appetizer for a summer party. —themessimake.com
What You'll Need
avocado - sliced
baby radishes - sliced
slices of bread or baguette of your choice (I used whole wheat sourdough from Trader Joe's)
extra virgin olive oil, per toast
balsamic vinegar, per toast
salt, a pinch per toast
black pepper, 2-3 twists per toast
Toast the bread or baguettes.
Arrange the avocado and radish slices, 3-4 slices of each, per toast.
Drizzle 1/2 tsp EVOO on each toast.
Drizzle 1/2 tsp balsamic vinegar on each toast.
Sprinkle salt and pepper.
Thats it, they're ready to serve. You can even add parmesan or feta cheese if you want.
