This crispy baguette topped with creamy avocado, melt-in-your-mouth salmon, fresh onion and basil comes together in 5 minutes tops. I pair it with a peppery arugula salad tossed with roasted asparagus and cherry tomatoes that add a divine sweet and buttery flavor.

Avocado toast has become one of my favorite quick meals — and even a favorite in general. The key is to start with a bread that toasts into crusty perfection, which is why whole wheat baguette is my go-to. And what takes it over the top is mashing the avocado separately, versus slicing it. I know that seems like such a simple step but the creamy, smooth, spreadable texture against the delicate salmon and crunch of the toast and onions is sublime.
