Avocado Toasts with Olive Relish Tomatoes and Balsamic

Don’t settle for plain avocado toast — top it with a savory olive relish, tomatoes, and a drizzle of balsamic vinegar! This makes for a filling and satisfying weekday breakfast.

A smashed avocado on toast with lots of salt, pepper, and lemon juice is a pleasant snack, but add a relish of buttery green olives spooned on top and you’ve got my attention.

When shopping for your olives, look for canned green olives. They have a buttery flavor and meaty texture that we love in easy recipes like this one.

Tame the onion’s pungency by briefly marinating it in lemon and vinegar; You still get plenty of onion flavor without the sting. Then stir in the tomatoes, chopped olives, and capers to complete the relish.

Load it on the toast and add some crunch with toasted pine nuts. You’ll never get tired of this avocado toast.
