A week or two ago when I posted my love letter to avocado toast, I got a comment from a reader who likes to make avocado toast with strawberries. I’ve heard about this combo and I’ve always wanted to try it. Strawberries are one of my favorite fruits, and I think we all know how I feel about avocados.
Today, strawberries were on sale at the grocery store so I decided that the time was ripe. I had some extra arugula on hand so I put that on the toast, and then I topped it with avocado, some sliced strawberries and goat cheese. I also drizzled on some balsamic because I love the combination of goat cheese, strawberries and balsamic vinegar. It’s a winning trio.
I think I’m going to try this recipe again soon and add basil instead of arugula. Either one works, but I have a feeling that the basil, strawberry, balsamic lineup will take the toast to the next level.
I heard this song at yoga today and I went up to the teacher after class to ask her the name. It’s the worst feeling to hear awesome music and then not be able to find the song–I don’t know about you, but it makes me feel pretty helpless. So I was glad when she obliged. It’s a great track for eating avocado toast or any food that you hold near and dear to your heart.
Avocado Toast with Strawberries and Balsamic (from me, to you)
2 slices of good bread
1 handful of arugula
1/2 an avocado
1/2 a lemon
Pinch of salt
2 strawberries, sliced
1/4 cup goat cheese crumbles
Pinch of pepper
Drizzle of balsamic vinegar for topping
Toast the slices of bread. Split the arugula between the two slices. Mash up the avocado with the lemon and pinch of salt in a small bowl. Spread the mash on top of the arugula. Add the sliced strawberries and sprinkle the goat cheese on top. Sprinkle some pepper and balsamic vinegar on top. Enjoy!
