I’m back from my trip to Switzerland – it was absolutely incredible. Its beauty totally exceeded my expectations. I’ve got a few travel posts coming over the next few weeks to talk more about the trip but for now, a recipe! This month’s Recipe Redux theme is “Get your fruits and veggies in shape – show us how you’re serving the bounty of gardens and orchards in shapes like ribbons, noodles, cut-outs, or other creative cuts.” Now I don’t have a spiralizer (hoping to get one on my registry!) so veggie noodles were out of the picture. But then it hit me…the latest food photo trend…avocado roses! I’m sure you’ve seen them taking over your Insta feed.

I wanted to test it out for myself to see what all the hype is about. They’re super fun to make and I loved shooting them but to be totally honest, if it’s just me and no one else is watching, I’ll stick to smashed avocado toast to save time :).

Avocado Toast 3 Ways

If you want to try avocado rose toast, first watch this video by fellow food blogger Healthy Nibbles and Bits and then try these 3 avocado rose toast variations:

1. Fried Egg + Avocado Rose + Red Pepper Flakes + Sea Salt
2. Smoked salmon + Fresh Dill + Capers + Avocado Rose + Sea Salt + Black Pepper
3. Sliced Radishes + Avocado Rose + Ground Pink Peppercorns + Sea Salt 

Avocado Rose Toast

These avocado rose toast variations are delicious. Each has a unique flavor profile and the creamy avocado brings each one together. One of these would make a great snack or breakfast. I ate the smoked salmon and radish toast for lunch yesterday :). Avocados are a great source of healthy fat and over 20 different vitamins and minerals so get avocado rose’ing already.
