    I really like this for a chic appetizer. I think I will try making bread crisps next time (baguette slices rubbed with garlic on both sides, baked for 10 min at 350) and a sprig of cilantro on top :-) - 4/7/14

    So tasty and easy to prepare. I used a two ounce slice of Tuscany bread and counted it as two servings. Easy to adapt recipe for one person. Used half a lemon and a small avocado. Mashed with pastry blender. Saved half of the mixture and diced tomato and onion for next day for another tasty treat!
