Crositinis as perfect to serve as starters at parties. They set a very upbeat mood right at the beginning, with their attractive appearance and irresistible taste.

Olive oil brushed slices of grilled or toasted bread are topped with yummy ingredients, ranging from cheese and herbs to sauces and veggies. The overall mouth-feel and taste of the crostini is an interplay of all these ingredients.

In this delectable version, the crostinis are topped with an innovative combination of avocado, coconut oil and freshly-grated coconut.

As a result, the Avocado and Coconut Crostini has an appetizing flavour and refreshing mouth-feel. Make sure the avocado is ripe, and cut it very lightly and neatly so that the crostini looks appealing.

Relish other avocado based treats like the Avocado Grapefruit and Strawberry Salad and Avocado and Feta Mash .

Love your collection of Crostini recipes. Avocado and Coconut go really well on a well baked Crostini. The sea salt usage is a must.
