Sometimes, the best lunches are the simple ones that happen on a slice of bread. Today, I am going to share a recipe that’s less of a recipe and more of a guide to one of my favorite lunches. This is a summery take on one of my all time breakfast favorites: lox and cream cheese on a bagel. The avocado melts into the toast like some sort of magical green butter. Top that off with some thin, salty slices of lox and some briny capers, and you have one of the simplest delicacies of life.
- slices of your favorite bread
- freshly ground pepper
- mixed greens
- olive oil
Toast your favorite bread until nice and warm. Spread the avocado (I usually do about 1/4 avocado per person) onto the bread. Top with thin slices of lox. Sprinkle with capers and freshly ground pepper. Toss greens and about a tablespoon of olive oil and serve on the side.
