Avocado Caprese Toast

I love the combination of fresh mozzarella cheese, ripe tomatoes and basil.
Also known as an Insalata Caprese  or a appetizer salad
that is in the style of Capri.  (an island off of Italy)

A heartier way to have a caprese salad in the form of brunch
or lunch is on toast.

Take some of your favorite crusty bread and cut it into slices.  
If you can-  toast or warm the bread so it's a little softer and simply warm.

Mix your combo of ripe tomatoes fresh mozzarella cheese and basil 
cut in chiffonade  (long strips)  in a bowl and add a sprinkle of salt 
and drizzle a little olive oil. (about 2 TBSP)

While the caprese contents are marinating in your bowl--
take your ripe avocado and mash it up with a fork or a potato masher.

The only thing you have to actually cook is an egg. 
A poached or egg cooked over easy is best so that 
the egg yolk drizzles onto your toast.

To dress your slice of bread-
take your butter knife and smother your bread with the mashed avocado-
then add the egg on top of the avocado and top with the caprese salad.
