Basil Pesto Avocado Toast with Tomatoes

 

Blackberry Farm Pesto blends are an easy way to stir-in big flavor. Fresh avocados mashed with our Basil Pesto makes a delicious and healthy spread that is a quick way to make a satisfying breakfast or open-faced sandwich for lunch.

Makes 1 cup of spread

1 ripe avocado, peeled, with pit removed
¼ cup Greek-style, plain yogurt or mayonnaise
¼ cup Blackberry Farm Basil Pesto
½ teaspoon salt
2 pieces of toast
12 cherry tomatoes cut in half
More salt to taste

Toast two pieces of your favorite bread.
In a small mixing bowl, combine the avocado flesh, the yogurt or mayonnaise, 2 tablespoons of Blackberry Farm Basil Pesto and salt. Mash the ingredients together with a fork until blended. You can make the blend be as chunky or smooth as you like. Spread the avocado mixture onto the toast and top with the cherry tomato halves. Dab on the remaining basil pesto and sprinkle with a little more salt if you like and serve immediately.
