Ingredients

1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved
1/4 cup basil, finely sliced, plus more garnish if desired
4 slices whole wheat or whole grain bread, toasted
1 avocado, halved, pit removed
1/8 tsp. ground black pepper
1/4 cup fat-free, shredded mozzarella
2 tsp. balsamic vinegar

Directions

Halve each cherry tomato and finely slice the basil leaves.
Toast each piece of bread.
Slice the avocado in half and remove the pit. Use a spoon to remove the avocado’s flesh from the skin and place it into a bowl. Add the chopped basil and pepper. Mash together with a fork.
Divide avocado mixture between each toast piece, spreading a layer onto each one. Place each toast onto a plate.
Add tomatoes onto the avocado cut-side-down. There may not be space for all the tomatoes, depending on how large the bread is. Divide shredded mozzarella between each toast and drizzle with balsamic vinegar. Garnish with a few basil leaves, if desired. Serve.
