Avocado Bruschetta Recipe

Easy avocado bruschetta is a flavorful snack that is killer for a party and also as a midday treat. The bright flavors are so satisfying, and the creamy addition of avocado is the best twist on the Italian classic!

I’m sure I’ve talked about it before, but bruschetta is my JAM.

I love the simple combination of bright tomatoes, sharp balsamic, and fresh basil. It’s my favorite way to celebrate the flavor of the tomato, and every time I eat it, I am transported right back to Italy.

There was this one afternoon on vacation in Sienna where I was sitting in the main square, sipping wine and enjoying the afternoon sounds of kids playing, chattering adults, and bustling tables of clinking wine glasses.

The bruschetta came to the table and in the first bite, it was like the life of the square burst alive in my mouth.

All those flavors instantly washed over my taste buds and then they lingered as I languidly sipped on a glass of red wine. It’s one of my favorite memories in Italy, and it’s the one that I think of the most when I eat bruschetta now.

You all know I love avocado, and the other day I was trying to think of a way to incorporate avocado into more Italian dishes. I already created this grilled avocado caprese chicken recipe, but I wanted something more snacky.

What’s better than bruschetta, am I right?

The addition of avocado to the classic bruschetta mixture is a natural fit, giving a little added richness and creaminess to the dish.

For me, it’s the ideal happy hour (or even lunch/dinner depending on how I’m feeling!) snack. It goes so well with red wine, white wine, cocktails, and beer.

You can hoard it all to yourself, share with a roommate or boo, or you can serve it up at your next party!

The good news? It comes together in just 5 minutes, and other than toasting the bread, there’s no cooking required!
