This is a summer dream. Let me know in the comments if you’ve ever seen these done before, I personally haven’t and I thought it was an amazing idea to combine the two together for anyone that couldn’t tolerate gluten or even wanted a lighter creamier version. Don’t get me wrong, I love my crostini and bruschetta but this is for anyone that wants a really fun and refreshing alternative.

Prep Time 8 minutes
Course Appetizer


  • 1 medium tomato any
  • 1 avocado ripe but not too soft
  • salt to taste
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1-2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 2-3 finely chopped basil leaves
  • balsamic is optional


  • Dice your tomato nice and small. You are more than welcome to take a little bit of the seeds out of the tomato if you want the bruschetta less watery.
  • Mix in the rest of your ingredients and stir. Cut your avocado directly and a half and take out the pit. Scoop a little bit out of each side (you can snack on it or use it for something else).
  • Fill each side with your tomatoes and optionally drizzle on a little bit of balsamic. You can take a small spoon and eat it as you scoop some avocado and some bruschetta.



You can absolutely take this recipe and serve it on some grilled Crostini. If you love feta I love to sprinkle it on instead of balsamic and it’s absolutely incredible. Feel free to do as you wish.
