There is something called an apperitivo in Italy. It is where you can go to a restaurant only pay about $10 for a drink and get free food from a buffet line. I only did this a couple of times when I studied abroad, but every single time that I did my favorite food to eat from the buffet was bruschetta. There isn’t much better in life than bruschetta, except for one thing: tomato and avocado bruschetta.

Traditional bruschetta isn’t made with avocado, but I will find any excuse to put avocado on anything. I already put avocado on toast and top it with slices of tomato, so I knew a few added ingredients couldn’t make it taste bad. I was right! The olive oil, balsamic, basil, garlic, and spices only enhanced the flavor into a big bite of deliciousness.

Another fun fact about bruschetta: you are probably pronouncing it wrong. Bruschetta is pronounced like bru-sketta, not bru-shetta.
