How do you make these Avocado Toast Recipes with Mint and Fruit?
Mix mashed avocado with chopped mint and lemon juice and season it with salt and pepper.
Slice and prepare all of the fruit.
Toast baguette slices under a broiler just until the edges are golden, and then rub a garlic clove on each one.
Divide the minty avocado among the baguette slices.
Arrange the fruit on top of each one, followed by a sprinkling of the Feta.
(More detailed instructions are below.)
Want to keep it vegan? Simply skip the Feta.
Strawberries, mango and grapefruit are always so lovely with avocado, and the mint brightens the flavors.
Now, add to that, the slightly salty flavor from the bit of Feta cheese sprinkled on top, and it’s perfection.
If you want a bit less hoopla, you can skip the fruit all together. The minty avocado toast recipe on its own is bursting with flavor.
And the beautiful green is oh-so-pretty.
You can throw these together inside of 20 minutes and you will be a star at the party you bring them to. Or at your own dinner table!
You can pretty much use any of your favorite fruits. Almost all of them will be divine with the avocado and mint combination. I think these three fruits are especially delicious with it, but the possibilities are endless.
A few more fruit toppings options:

As it turns out, I know everybody might not love avocado toast, but I adore it, along with most people I know. 😉
