When we lived in California, hubby and I enjoyed an abundance of delicious avocado dishes. Garnishing fresh seafood and mushed into mouthwatering guacamole, avocado was everywhere. We couldn’t get away from the gorgeous pale green fruit…  But, it’s not like we were trying!

It remains a major favorite in my house, and especially in the summer, avocado is all over our homemade salads, sandwiches, and the appetizers we make for parties. The only fruit we love more than avocado, though? Tomatoes!

Tossed with a tangy mixture of balsamic vinegar, olive oil and garlic, the tomatoes tasted candy-sweet on a bed of creamy smashed avocado.

Crisp sliced French bread served as the perfect base for these scrumptious, summery bruschetta. They’re as easy to make as they are colorful and salty-sweet. Serve them on the side of grilled meats and fish, or as a fresh party appetizer that guests will gobble up.

Every bite is better than the last and I know after one, you’ll agree. These avocado bruschetta are irresistibly good!
