-The Gluten-Free Gal’s Guide


  • 1 Medium Avocado
  • 2 Slices of Gluten-Free Bread (I used Udi’s Gluten Free Multigrain Bread)
  • 3 or 4 small Fresh Mozzarella Balls
  • 2 Campari Tomatoes (you can use any type of tomato; this is just what I had in the fridge)
  • 2 tsp. Balsamic Reduction 
  • 1 tsp. Lemon Juice
  • Fresh Basil
  • Salt


  1. Toast your bread to the desired amount.
  2. Cut your avocado in half in half, remove from the skin, and discard the pit. 
  3. In a small bowl, mash the avocado with your lemon juice.  This helps keeps the avocado green and adds a light citrusy flavor. 
  4. Salt your avocado to taste. 
  5. Slice tomatoes, mozzarella, and basil.  
  6. Scoop a heaping amount of avocado on top of each slice of toast.  Spread so that the whole slice of bread is covered.  
  7. Top your avocado with your sliced tomato and mozzarella. 
  8. Drizzle balsamic reduction on top of the tomato and mozzarella. 
  9. Sprinkle the fresh basil on top (to preference)
  10. Serve and enjoy!
