In This Recipe
Directions
  1. While bagels are toasting, mash avocado with the juice of half a lemon in a small bowl. Season to taste.
  2. Schmear each bagel half with avocado spread, then top with smoked salmon, red onion and capers. (I like eating mine open-faced.) Finish with a squeeze of fresh lemon and a twist or two of freshly cracked black pepper.
