Avocado toast is a simple, creative and trendy snack: in fact, it is very popular among American celebrities and it has been all the rage on social networks for a few years now. You can eat it for breakfast, snack, lunch or brunch, and you can stuff it in many different ways: you can customize it according to your imagination and personal tastes, making a light avocado toast, just with toast and avocado cream, or adding bacon, sauces or whatever you like. In our recipe we have added salmon, cucumber and pink pepper to the avocado cream. What makes this toast special is the combination of the toasted bread and the softness of the avocado pulp. Here's how to prepare it in a few simple steps.
Divide the avocado in half, remove the stone and extract the pulp. Cut it into small pieces and arrange them in a bowl. Mash the avocado pulp with a fork or spoon, then add the Greek yogurt, lemon juice, salt, pepper and mix.
Toast the slices of bread in the oven: place them on a baking tray lined with parchment paper, grease them with a drizzle of oil and bake at 200 ° for 5 minutes. Alternatively, toast it in a non-stick pan.
Spread the avocado cream on the slices of sandwich bread, then add the salmon slices, the cucumber slices and the pink pepper. Serve and enjoy!
For the preparation of avocado toast, choose cereal bread or black rye bread, which go perfectly with avocado.
To make avocado toast choose a ripe avocado, with a bright green skin and soft to the touch, but not mushy. Use it immediately after peeling it, otherwise season it with lemon juice to prevent it from turning black.
Another popular version of avocado toast is the one with egg. To make it, toast the slices of bread, mash the avocado pulp seasoned with oil, salt and pepper and spread it on the slices of bread. Top with a fried egg on each toast and eat it immediately.
