Summer Fresh Produce: Strawberry Avocado Toast

I can't think of a more delicious combination for avocado toast than to add strawberries and feta to the mix.  It's the perfect bite all summer long!

Strawberry Avocado Toast

Sometimes a quick snack or breakfast item is in order.  One that taste great but isn't hard to make.  Avocado Toast fits that category.  This version mixes buttery toasted bread with chunky avocado, sweet sliced strawberries, and a sprinkling of feta cheese, all topped with a balsamic drizzle.  This toast is SOOOO YUMMY!

This is such an outstanding sweet/salty/creamy combination of flavors and the toast is a simple as can be to make.  I toast a nice large piece of buttered bread in the skillet and use that as a base.  The rest is just chopping your ingredients and piling it on.  So flavorful and it's the perfect item for breakfast, brunch, or a snack.  You could even do these on little crostini bread slices and serve as appetizers!  We'll be making this all summer long.


What Ingredients do I need?

  • Bread - I either use a large slice of sourdough or country loaf.
  • Butter
  • Avocado - make sure it is ripe.
  • Strawberries - organic is best, and make sure they are very red and ripe.
  • Feta Cheese - a mild version works best.
  • Balsamic Drizzle - I use this one.

Substitutions and Variations

  • Use Ricotta Salata instead of feta cheese
  • Leave off the cheese
  • Use your favorite bread
  • Mash the avocado if you like and then top with the remaining ingredients
  • Leave off the balsamic drizzle
  • Add some fresh chopped mint
  • Use peaches or nectarines instead of strawberries
  • Use small French bread slices to make crostini

Kitchen Tips and Notes

  • For a little more decadence, I butter the bread and toast it in a skillet over medium heat. This produces a nice buttery, crispy toast.  You can use a toaster instead if you prefer and leave off the butter if you want.

  • Perfect for:
  • -breakfast
