Avocado toast is the trendy thing to eat right now. I don’t want it to be trendy though because it is my favorite! I eat avocado toast almost every day. I don’t want it to go out of style because I need it in my life. So, I am calling avocado toast a classic. It is the new black and it is here to stay!

And classic doesn’t mean boring. I just made Caprese Avocado Toast and I am telling you it is FAR from boring. It is THE avocado toast of the summer!

Caprese Avocado Toast combines two of my all-time favorite things, caprese salad and avocado toast. Simple, yet genius! I don’t know why I haven’t been eating this ALL of my life. The flavor combination is perfection!

Summertime is the perfect time for this toast too! Tomatoes are soooooo good right now and our basil plant is exploding! Plus, it is beyond easy to make. No cooking is involved, unless you consider toasting the bread cooking, but I don’t. My trusty little toaster does all of the work, not me! And this toast is good anytime of the day, for breakfast, lunch, snack time, dinner time, ALL of the time!

Change up your everyday avocado toast and make Caprese Avocado Toast. You can thank me later:) It is a CLASSIC!

  • 2 ripe avocados
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • Sea salt and black pepper, to taste
  • 4 slices bread, toasted
  • 4 ounces fresh mozzarella, sliced and cut into pieces, to fit the bread
  • 1 cup grape tomatoes, halved
  • 1/4 cup basil leaves, roughly chopped
  • Balsamic Glaze, for drizzling


  • Cut the avocados in half, remove pit, and scoop the flesh into a small bowl. Add the lemon juice, sea salt, and black pepper, to taste. With a fork, mash the ingredients together, keeping the texture slightly chunky.
  • Spread the mashed avocado evenly onto toasted bread slices. Top with fresh mozzarella slices, tomatoes, and basil. Season with additional salt and pepper, if desired. Drizzle with balsamic glaze and serve immediately.
  • Note-I like to use whole grain bread. If you need the recipe to be gluten-free, use gluten-free bread. If you don’t have grape tomatoes, tomato slices will work too!

  1. This is EVERYTHING. I have been eating avocado toast with a soft boiled egg like it’s my job, but I am TOTALLY open to switching it up for a little caprese action. YES PLEASE. Pinned!

  2. Ooh la la, that looks good! You haven’t been able to tempt me with avocado toast until this version. Must rush out and buy the ingredients!

  3. I refuse to believe that avocado toast is a trend too, because it is TOO good to ever go out of style! Love this version! I also have all of the ingredients to make it right now!!! 🙂 Love when that happens.

  4. Oh, boy, these could become a delicious habit! I eat avocado toast nearly every day, but you have just inspired me to up my game 🙂

  5. As if avo toast wasn’t good enough, this caprese sends it over the top! I’m with you– avocado toast is a classic and IS here to stay 🙂

  6. Served this as an appi for a birthday dinner, and everyone loved it! The balsamic drizzled on top is just the perfect touch. I prepared all ingredients and everyone built their own toast to their tastes – it was fun and everyone had just the balance of ingredients they wished. Great summer treat…and easy!

  7. This looks so gourmet, I can’t even… Amazing. I’m like on a toast/burger strike today. I’ve already pinned a bunch of recipes, but I think that this will be the first to try out. I love avocado and always appreciate a good toast with it.

  8. When I put this through a calculator, it comes up with 478 calories per serving. Does that seem right to you? I thought that was awfully high.

    I love the recipes! We have identical palates! And you passed my test. haha. I always get irritated when Caprese recipes do not call for fresh or Bufala Mozzarella. The cheese for me is everything! I’m exploring all toasts at the moment. My fav right now is Cherve with fresh mint sprigs and tomatoes from my garden baked on my husband’s homemade Denver sourdough baguettes. It’s heaven. Keep it up! #bookmarked #inspired #illbefollowing

    Obsessed with this. I never cared about avocado toast before, I really am not a huge fan of avocado. But your pictures drew me in. And OMG I can’t stop eating it. I literally eat this for breakfast 2-3 days every. single. week. The balsamic glaze is what puts it over the top for me.

    After a visit to my local farmer’s market I had everything needed for this recipe. It’s wonderful,easy and combines some of my favorite flavors. We served it with a big salad, so no cooking required. Love when that happens.

    This recipe is fantastic and I was not an avocado fan until this recipe! I put extra virgin olive oil on both sides of Dave’s thin sliced powerseed bread, put in oven on broil flipping til both sides were toasted. When it came out of oven I rubbed both sides with a cut clove of garlic. Made the avocado as above. Didn’t have fresh mozzarella so used shredded from the bag. Sprinkled a little Italian seasoning on top. Added cut tomatoes and balsamic glaze! Ate it 2 days in a row for lunch and counting! Thank you so much for this recipe.
