Guacamole and Bruschetta

Two easy recipes I really love to make are Guacamole and Bruschetta. They are both so easy and delicious and make the perfect appetizers for any meal. I make them both without a recipe or measuring cup. Just throw all the ingredients together in any preferred amount. Here’s how I like to do it.

Guacamole

2 or 3 avocados

1/4-1/2 of a diced red onion

1-2 diced roma tomatoes

a handful of finely chopped cilantro

a squirt of lemon juice

a squirt of lime juice

finely chopped jalapeƱo (optional)

salt and pepper to taste

minced garlic

In a bowl, mash the avocados. Then add all the other ingredients and stir together. Serve with chips, spread on a sandwich, scoop on top of a salad, add to your burrito or any other creative thing you might like to do with it.

Bruschetta

One thinly sliced loaf of french or Italian bread. (or any long thin loaf of bread)

3-4 Roma tomatos

about a teaspoon of minced garlic

half a diced red onion

about 1/2 a cup of sun-dried tomatoes sliced up

2-3 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar

a handful of finely chopped basil

salt and pepper to taste

a splash of olive oil

Parmesan cheese

Fresh mozzarella cheese thickly sliced (optional)

Combine tomatoes, onions, basil, balsamic vinegar, olive oil, salt and pepper in bowl. Set aside in or in refrigerator.

Take your slices of bread and lay them on a cookie sheet. Drizzle olive oil over the bread slices. Sprinkle cheese on top. Place in the oven to broil on high for about 5 minutes. Keep a close eye to make sure they don’t burn and take out when cheese is melted and bread is a crispy golden brown. Add a slice of mozzarella and a scoop of bruschetta on top of the bread and eat!
