The combination of tomatoes and avocado is nothing new, but that is what makes this recipe so great. It is vibrant, fresh, and made with only 6 ingredients!

The lemon zest is key as it adds a nice tang to the toast!

Why do I love this recipe? Well, this toast provides the “wow” taste factor and great nutrition benefits.

It consists of all the components that I look for in a healthful breakfast.

What bread do I recommend for this recipe?

The best bread for this recipe is a hard, rustic bread that can support the weight of the avocado and tomatoes. I recommend ciabatta, French, Italian, focaccia, or sourdough.
