Avocado Toast with Lime Mayo #improvcookingchallenge

Welcome to our monthly edition of the Improv Cooking Challenge!  This month we are enticing you with avocados and lime. I love love love this combination and had the perfect recipe to share.  My family loves avocado toast and I thought I would share this simple version with you.


The #ImprovCookingChallenge is a monthly blogging event where two ingredients are assigned to a month. The event is hosted by Nichole at Cookaholic Wife.  Bloggers can make any recipe they like as long as it features the two ingredients. If you are a blogger and would like to join us, please visit our Facebook page. You can also read more about the event on our home page. If you’d like to see previous creations, check out our Pinterest board.

On to the main course!


Instead of a recipe, I am going to tell you my process.  First gather up bread for toasting, 1 small avocado, 1 T mayo and the juice of 1/2 of a lime plus salt and pepper.  Peel the avocado, cut in half.  Smash 1/2 of the avocado and slice the other half. Sprinkle some of the lime juice on the avocado to keep from browning.  Mix the mayo with the lime juice. If the mixture is too runny, add more mayo until the right consistency.  Toast bread.  Remove the toast immediately and spread the mayo. Next spread the mashed avocado and top that with the avocado slices.  Sprinkle salt and pepper to taste.

This is my basic recipe for avocado toast.  Here are some of my favorite variations:

Sliced hardboiled egg to the top.
Add chopped red onion to the top.
Chopped bacon to the top.
Fried egg to the top
Leftover grilled corn on the cob to the top.
Goat cheese sprinkled on top.
Sliced smoked salmon and a sprinkling of dill on top.

The varieties are endless!  One of my friends loves her avocado toast with sliced tomatoes and fresh mozzarella with a drizzle of balsamic vinegar.  Doesn't that sound delicious?
