Crostini is a traditional Italian appetizer consisting of small slices of grilled or toasted bread, brushed with olive oil, and boosted with amazing toppings.

The toppings can be as simple as a dab of cheese and herbs, or it can consists of veggies, fruits, sauces and herbs. The Avocado and Cherry Tomato Crostini is an outstanding combo of mashed avocado and cherry tomatoes on slices of French bread, drizzled with olive oil and sprinkled with sea salt.

Creamy avocado combines beautifully with succulent sweet-sour cherry tomatoes giving us a very tasteful crostini, which is ideal to serve as a starter at parties.

This is a fab snack or starter to serve. Baking the baguette and then topping with Avocado and cherry tomatoes is just the perfect combo. Nothing beats the crunch of the Crostini and the sprinkling of sea salt as a topping.
