Avocado Smash

Simply Smashing: Avocado Smash

The Family Circle staff has fallen for the avocado smash, sold at the Australian coffee shop, Bluestone Lane, in our NYC office building. No need to head Down Under (or to the Big Apple)—this potassium-and-protein-packed mini meal is easy to whip up.


  • In a bowl, combine 1 peeled and diced avocado, 1 tablespoon crumbled feta, 1 teaspoon lemon juice and 1/8 teaspoon salt. Smash with a fork, leaving some large chunks.
  • Spoon onto a slice of toasted multigrain bread. If desired, top with sliced grape tomatoes, red pepper flakes, more feta and a drizzle of olive oil.
