Serves: 1

  • 2 slices of your favorite seedy whole grain bread, lightly toasted
  • 1 small avocado, cut in half, pit removed

  • 1 teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • Extra Virgin olive oil, for drizzling
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • red pepper flakes to taste
  1. Place the toasted bread on a cutting board. Using a butter knife, scoop out some avocado flesh and spread evenly on each toast, covering the whole area. Drizzle 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice on each toast.
  2. Place 1-2 two tomato slices on top of avocado.
  3. Place sliced onion on top of the tomato.
  4. Gently weave the cucumber ribbons on top making a lattice pattern.
