Please tell me that you have introduced your taste buds to the wonderful world of avocado toast? While eating avocado toast, I feel as though the clouds have parted, bright rays of sunshine are beaming through and the angels begin to sing. This is no exaggeration. It is heavenly.

You may be thinking, why would I lather smashed avocado on my toast? Butter and jam work just fine for me!

Answer: The cool, creaminess of the avocado combined with the warm, crispy toast is one flavor/texture combination you do not want to miss!

I have always been one to experiment with toppings on toast. One of my favorite afternoon snacks was toast lightly drizzled with olive oil and topped with chopped tomatoes and feta. It is very simple to make and satisfying enough to hold me over until dinner.

I figured, why not take my current favorite snack of avocado toast and add a little Greek flare?! 

This Greek avocado toast is full of bright and creamy flavors and not to mention it is filling! After using one whole avocado for the recipe, I found this dish to be filling enough to be a meal on its own.

If you are looking for a lighter snack, I would recommend only using 1/2 of an avocado.

Greek Avocado Toast

Ingredients:

2 Slices of bread

1 Avocado

1/2 Whole tomato, chopped or sliced. Whichever you prefer

1 Tbsp Crumbled Feta cheese (I used reduced fat)

Black pepper to taste

Squirt of fresh lime juice (Lemon juice works as well)

Directions:

Prepare all of the toppings first, before you toast the bread. The combination of the warm toast with the cool avocado is something you don't want to miss out on!

Chop the tomato and set aside. Remove the avocado pit and scoop the avocado flesh into a bowl. Using a fork, mash the avocado until creamy. 

Toast the two slices of bread to the level of darkness you prefer.

To assemble, equally spread the mashed avocado onto each slice of bread. Top with the chopped tomato and sprinkle the crumbled Feta cheese on top. Season with cracked black pepper and a squirt of lime juice. (lemon juice works fine, the citrus is used to brighten the flavors).
