avocado bruschetta

I’m pretty sure that avocados improve any recipe out there.

Crab salad [1]?  Better with avocados.

Parmesan cones [2]?  Fill them with avocado!

Chocolate cake [3]?  Ok, they’re not in the recipe so far, but I bet they couldn’t hurt.

But pair those delicious avocados with fresh summer tomatoes and crusty bread, and you might my favorite dish of the whole bunch.

Lots of recipes call for cheese in bruschetta, but that always feels a little too pizza-like to me.  On the other hand, a little richness in the form of some healthy fat is an amazing addition that makes this dish more satisfying, .

I’ve been on a big natural-fat kick, which is so great for my hair and skin.  Dishes like this are such an easy way to incorporate fresh, delicious, all natural foods into your diet — and delicious to boot.
