avocado bruschetta ♥

So I am in this avocado fix...can't get enough so here is a perfect appetizer..hey why not for St Patty's day (it's green!) ..with an italian twist..avocado bruschetta with a balsamic reduction yummy!

Serves 1 to 2
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
Sea salt
2 slices rustic bread, 1/2 inch thick
Extra-virgin olive oil
1 large garlic clove, peeled, partially smashed
1 ripe but firm Hass avocado
Freshly ground black pepper

Combine balsamic vinegar, lemon juice and a pinch of sea salt in a small saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to a simmer. Cook until vinegar reduces by half and has a thick syrup consistency, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and cool slightly.
Preheat oven broiler or grill pan. Brush bread slices on both sides with olive oil. Rub with garlic clove. Toast in oven or on pan until golden brown, turning once. Transfer to a plate.
Trim tip of avocado. Run knife vertically around center of avocado, cutting into flesh until knife meets the pit. Gently twist the avocado open and remove pit. Carefully remove the skin, keeping avocado intact. Thinly slice avocado halves crosswise. Arrange avocado slices on bread, overlapping in an accordian pattern. Brush with balsamic syrup. Sprinkle with sea salt flakes and generously season with black pepper. enjoy!  ♥
