Crostini with Avocado and Feta Cheese
Circle B Kitchen
Makes 4 crostini
4 slices of baguette, grilled or toasted
4 teaspoons of lime juice
¼ teaspoon kosher salt
½ teaspoon fresh cracked black pepper
1/3 cup feta cheese, crumbled
Fresh cracked pepper for serving
Slice the avocado in half, remove the seed and discard. Use a spoon to remove the avocado from the peel and place in a small bowl. Mash with a fork until fairly smooth. Stir in the lime juice, salt and pepper and set aside.
*Grill or toast the baguette slices and spread with the avocado mixture. To with the feta cheese and a good sprinkling of freshly cracked black pepper.
*My favorite way to do this is to brush the baguette slices with a tiny bit of olive oil (or spray with olive oil cooking spray) and sprinkle them with just a bit of kosher salt. Then I place them oiled side down on a very hot grill pan until they get some sear marks and then turn them over for just a minute. We love the charred, smoky flavor this gives the bread, without drying it out overly much.
