Avocado Chimichurri Bruschetta Recipe-

Ingredients:
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 3 garlic gloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • Black pepper, to taste
  • 1/4 cup scallion infused olive oil (you could use regular olive oil, but the scallion-infused olive oil adds a marvelous complimentary flavor to this appetizer)
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro (coriander), chopped coarsely
  • 2 ripe, but still firm avocados, pitted, peeled, and diced
  • 6 (or however many you want) 1″-1-1/2″ thick slices whole wheat baguette, toasted
Directions:
  1. In a medium sized bowl, whisk together the lemon juice, red wine vinegar, garlic, salt, red pepper flakes, oregano, and black pepper, mixing well.
  2. Very slowly, add the olive oil, whisking constantly, until well-emulsified.
  3. Stir in the cilantro.
  4. Very carefully, fold in the avocado cubes, tossing to thoroughly coat with the olive oil mixture.
  5. Spoon onto the toasted baguette slices and sprinkle with additional sea salt, if desired.  Serve your Avocado Chimichurri Bruschetta immediately.
