If Avocado Toast were a person they’d totally be celebrity that wouldn’t be able to leave their house without a swarm of security. Avocado toast is internet famous–it’s been blogged about, Instagramed about like a million times. And for good reason. It might be my most favorite, simplest snack/lunch in the entire world. Sometimes the simplest things make us happy.
This is a new take on the cult classic, involving grapefruit and hazelnuts (but pictured – because I can’t write a proper grocery list – pistachios, which work equally well). Grapefruit and avocado salads have been around for quite some time now, so I figured I’d put it all on a piece of toast, top it with toasted hazelnuts, some olive oil and a little salt, and call it a day.
Like other renditions of avocado toast, this too proves to be an awesome little snack that takes about 10 minutes to make. It’s a perfect lil’ breakfast or lunch situation, and fuels my obsession with things on toast even further.
This may seem like a crazy weird combination and it sort of is–but it’s so awesome. I promise. I made a hazelnut and grapefruit tart back in March and it was incredible. These things do work together! I shot a few other renditions of avocado toast too, with LeafTV. Those will be up soon – I’ll be sure to share them. The world needs more avocado toast, I thinks.
