Ingredients4 slices bread (your favorite type) 1/8 tsp. olive oil, or to taste 2 ripe, Fresh California Avocados, seeded, peeled and mashed 1 1/2 cups shredded or diced chicken 1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese 2 stalks celery, diced 2 small carrots, diced or cut into rounds 1/2 tsp. hot sauce, (your favorite) to taste 1 scallion, thinly sliced for garnish 1/8 tsp. flaked sea salt, to taste 1/8 tsp. red pepper flakes, to taste, optional
- Lightly brush bread with olive oil and place into a toaster oven or under the broiler in your oven. Watch carefully and toast to your liking.
- Add one half avocado, sliced, to each piece of toast. Using a fork, lightly smash the avocado across the toast. Alternatively, you can smash the two full avocados in a bowl, first, then spread onto the toast.
- Top the avocado toast with the chicken, if using, then evenly sprinkle on the blue cheese crumbles, celery, carrots and drizzle with as much hot sauce as you’d like.
- Garnish with scallions and sprinkle with flaked sea salt and red pepper flakes for extra heat, if you’d like.
Serving Suggestion: To add extra flavor and for sauce lovers dipping or drizzling the toast in ranch would be a great traditional addition.
Beverage Pairing: A tall glass of water.
*Large avocados are recommended for this recipe. A large avocado averages about 8 ounces. If using smaller or larger size avocados adjust the quantity accordingly.
