Prep:

15 Min

Cook:

5 Min

Method:

Broil

Ingredients

1/4 clove
extra virgin olive oil
4-5 oz
soft goat cheese (chevre, for example)
4
ripe avocados
6 small
baguettes (or similar bread)
6-8
tomato slices
cucumber slices
fresh basil, cilantro or flat leaf italian parsley (optional but tasty!)
1 tsp
green peppercorns in brine, crushed *or* capers (my addition but optional)
coarse salt

DRESSING:

3 Tbsp
fresh lemon juice
cracked black pepper
salt, to taste

Directions Step-By-Step

1
DRESSING: Put *1 tablespoon* of the lemon juice, little bit of cracked black pepper, and salt to taste into a non-reactive bowl; stir well. While whisking constantly, drizzle in olive oil to form a dressing; set aside.
2
TOPPING: Put goat cheese, remaining 2 tbsp. of lemon juice, finely ground black pepper and the flesh from the avocados into a bowl. Lightly mash with a fork; season with salt to taste.
3
Drizzle some olive oil on the baguettes then transfer baguettes to baking sheet and broil until just warmed through, 1–2 minutes.
4
Divide avocado mixture between the broiled baguette halves and spread to cover each. Top the baguette halves with tomato and cucumber slices, in any arrangement you wish. Drizzle some of the cracked pepper dressing onto each. Garnish with fresh herb of choice, a light sprinkle of coarse salt and if desired add a little bit of the green peppercorns in brine *or* capers.
