Bruschetta With Avocado & Basil

Recipe Ingredients:
1 California Avocado, seeded, peeled and diced
1/2 lb Roma tomatoes, sliced lengthwise and diced
1/4 cup diced red onion
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons chopped parsley
1 tablespoons chopped fresh basil leaves
1-2 medium cloves garlic, minced
Freshly ground pepper and salt, to taste
1 sourdough baguette (about 10 oz.), diagonally cut into 1/2-inch slices and lightly toasted

Preparation:
In medium bowl, lightly combine avocado, tomatoes, onion, olive oil, parsley, basil, garlic, pepper and salt.
Top each slice of toasted bread with about 1 heaping tbsp. of the tomato-avocado mixture.
Garnish each with small leaf of basil, if desired.

Note: To prepare ahead of time or to keep mixture in the refrigerator for use as a quick snack, combine all ingredients except avocado. To serve, thinly slice 1 peeled medium California avocado and arrange 1 or 2 slices of avocado on each piece of toasted bread. Top each serving with about 1 heaping tbsp. of the tomato-avocado mixture.
