Cucumber Mint Crostini

The spread ingredients on this crostini, are crumbled feta cheese mixed with avocado.
As an experiment the spread mixture taste really good together with cucumber and chopped mints.
crumbled feta cheese is salty,so I add just little bit honey to reduce the saltiness in the spread mixture and avocado adding creamy taste to it.










 Ingredients :
- Ciabatta bread or french baguette
- Olive oil for drizzle
- English cucumber
- 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
- 1 small ripe avocado
- 1/2 tsp honey
- little bit chopped mints


Preparation :
preheat oven on 350 degree F
slice ciabatta bread or french baguette in 2 inch thick
drizzle slice breads with olive oil, Bake In the oven for about 2-3 minutes,let them cool.

Meanwhile, cut avocado in half and pitted,and scoop with spoon into small mixing bowl
mix them with crumbled feta cheese and just little bit of honey to reduce the saltiness from cheese,and smash with fork or spoon until the mixture are smooth.
spread into slice bread and topping with thinly sliced cucumber and sprinkle with chopped mints and little bit crumbled feta cheese.
* great recipe for appetizer or potluck party *

Simple yet so attractive, love all the pics and I noticed that you are getting better in the way you present the food you made.

I can eat cucumber everyday and in fact, whenever I need veg, its slices of cucumber for me.
