Today I have a really simple fresh heirloom tomato avocado toast with balsamic drizzle that highlights some of summers amazing flavours! The juicy field ripened heirloom tomatoes are just bursting with goodness that goes so well with to sweet and tart balsamic reduction and basil, not to mention the cool and creamy mashed avocado. I always enjoy a simple avocado toast and it’s so easy to change up the toppings, though this has to be one of my favourites! I served this heirloom tomato avocado toast with balsamic drizzle with a fresh raspberry and mint limeade and peaches! What a nice summer meal!
