Fresh Vegetables and Avocado

I just love fresh vegetables and I am not a huge carb fan. I always make an this for a summer special treat for my guests or quick lunch. Whenever we have a family get together, I love making this bruschetta. I actually leave the bread in a big bowl and let them spread it themselves. This spread is great right out the refrigerator or at room temperature.

I have even packed it just in a container and used cucumber slices for the dipping instead of the bread.



This avocado insalata bruschetta is like having a great little salad on your garlic toast.



You can even used sliced of zucchini instead of bread or even long slices of cucumber instead of making slices for dipping. Whatever you choose to do and how your healthy lifestyle diet is prefered, try this as a wholesome snack.


Avocado has so many health benefits. There are many articles written on how great it is for skin, bones, heart and can even ward off cancer. It's even great for digestion. There are so many healthy reasons to eat it.



I love growing my own trees here in Florida. We have an abundance of avocado here so this is something I am lucky to make all year long. I personally eat at least one avocado every other day. I love them on top of a regular leafy green salad. Anyway I can get avocado into my diet, I will make sure I eat it weekly.

Check out the photos and how to cut Avocado plus a Bonus GUACAMOLE DIP Recipe at the end!


As you can see I have provided many photos on how to cut up an avocado. They are easy to slice, chop or pit and best and easiest part is taking the knife and on a ripe avocado.

Taking the tip of that knife and just folding back the skin the whole avocado will peel back! It's so easy.

There are always ingredients in every recipe you can change up. If you aren't a fan of olives try another chopped item like fresh green hot peppers to give it a little kick.

when avocado is that nicely dressed, cannot refuse it! Great idea for a bruschetta! Perfect for a small bite with a chilled glass of white wine (dry please)

These are just about all of my fav salad ingredients. No salad is complete to me without an avocado!

Claudia said...

And wouldn't you know it - I'm looking at a ripe avocado! I also do an avocado bruschetta so am in tune with how tasty this. Your scrumptious addition of pesto is inspired. Again - you inspire.

Love avocado! I especially like the idea of putting this on bruschetta! I usually use avocado in salads and in Mexican themed dishes, but this would be great!
