So, so, easy. Look for ripe but still firm avocado; use plenty of lemon or lime juice; and don't mush it all up too much. It's good to still have itty bits of feta breaking up the rich creaminess of the avocado.


1 ripe avocado, halved and stoned

1 tbsp dill, finely chopped

1 tbsp mint leaves, chopped

Sea salt and pepper

1 tbsp lime or lemon juice

100g feta cheese, crumbled

Half red onion, finely sliced

100g cherry tomatoes, halved

2 thick slices toast

2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil

Extra dill or mint for serving


Roughly chop the avocado and place in a bowl with chopped dill, mint, sea salt, pepper and lime or lemon juice. Smash roughly with a fork, then lightly toss with most of the crumbled feta.

Pile on to hot toast (buttered or brushed with extra-virgin olive oil), and scatter with remaining feta and extra dill or mint.

Toss the cherry tomatoes and finely sliced onion with extra-virgin olive oil, sea salt and pepper and serve on top or alongside.
