One Happy Thing: Avocado Toast with Sea Salt
A few tips: Make sure your avocado is perfectly ripe. Crunchy or otherwise underripe avocados just won't do. It needs to be so creamy that you can practically spread it with a butter knife. The toast should be made from good bread, though I suspect this would still be swoon-inducing even on Wonder Bread. My favorite is homemade sourdough with a touch of wheat. You can butter the toast or drizzle it (and the avocado) with olive oil; I am constantly changing my allegiances between the two. If there is no sea salt on hand, a pinch of kosher is a fine substitute.
If you've never tried avocado toast, please do so immediately. You can thank me later.
