Take Two Tuesday: Avocado and Tomato Bruschetta

I was craving my Avocado and Tomato Bruschetta and thought it'd be great for a T2T. My original post was poised for Spring / Summer weather and thought it'd be nice to utilize some indoor equipment and still get these delicious bites. Try it out for your next appetizer, or use a larger loaf to make it suitable for dinner!





Avocado and Tomato Bruschetta
Time: 45 Minutes / Serving Size: 20 Pieces

Ingredients:

Dressing:
  • 1/4 Cup Olive Oil
  • Handful of Cilantro, Finely Chopped
  • 1/4 Tsp. Red Wine Vinegar
  • 1/2 Tsp. Granulated Garlic
  • 1/2 Tsp. Salt
  • 1/2 Tsp. Pepper
  • Juice and Zest of 1 Lime
Bruschetta:
  • 1 Baguette of your choice (I used sourdough)
  • 1/4 Cup of Olive Oil
  • 3 Garlic Cloves, Crushed
  • 4 Avocados, Diced Small
  • 2 Corn
  • 1 Pint of Grape Tomatoes, Halved
  • 1/4 Red Onion, Diced Small
  • Pinch of Salt
Directions:
Pour the 1/4 cup of olive oil into a measuring cup and add the three crushed garlic cloves. Put in fridge until needed.


DRESSING

Pour 1/4 of olive oil into a mason jar.

Finely chop the cilantro and add to jar.

Add in red wine vinegar, granulated garlic, salt, and pepper.



Zest and juice the lime.

Put the cap on the mason jar and shake. Leave in fridge until needed.

BRUSCHETTA

Fill a pot with water over high heat until boiling. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Half the avocados and give them a small dice. Add to a medium sized bowl.

Half the tomatoes. Add to bowl.

Dice the onion small and add to bowl.


Slice the baguette and place on baking sheet (you can use a rack like I did, or not). Take the garlic olive oil out of the fridge and brush on top of baguette slices. Place in oven for 6-9 minutes.




Once the water is boiling, place the corn in the pot and cook for 4-5 minutes.
 
Take the corn out and run your knife in between the kernels and core. Add kernels to bowl.

Season the mixture in the bowl with salt.

Take the dressing out of the fridge and shake. Pour in half into the bowl and mix. If needed, pour in more dressing until you've reached a desired state.

Place the mixture on top of baguette slices and serve!
