As common as avocado toast has become, there are still so many ways to make it an unique and refreshing snack. I was inspired by this recipe from Zucchi and slightly altered it by incorporating lemon juice and crushed red pepper flakes. Instructions below!

1) Toast the slices of bread lightly in the toaster. They must be crispy but still soft, don't overdo it!

2) In the meantime, cut the avocado in half, remove the flesh with a teaspoon and place it in a bowl. Add a little salt, pepper, and lemon juice then crush the avocado with a fork to make a cream, which you will spread on the first slice of bread.

3) Dice or crumble the feta and sprinkle it over the toast. Garnish with crushed red pepper flakes then drizzle Zucchi EVOO to add flavour. Enjoy!

Zucchi's US activities & Blending Events would not be possible without the Flavor Your Life Campaign, which works to educate North American consumers on the benefits of authentic extra virgin olive oil hailing from Europe. Funded by the European Union and the Italian government, the Flavor Your Life campaign represents a consortium of European extra virgin olive oil producers; all with the overarching goal of empowering North-American-based-consumers and providing them with the best European brands of extra virgin olive oil.

Flavor Your Life hosted an extra virgin olive oil tasting at Il Gattopardo in New York on June 29th featuring Giovanni Zucchi. The Flavor Your Life sponsored event not only informed guests on what makes extra virgin olive so favorable, but also on how to check for it's authenticity and how to properly cook with it. Guests at the event also had the opportunity to blend their own, personalized olive oil. Together with the Flavor Your Life recipes card, guests are now able to create the experience again in their own homes.
