Avocado Chimichurri Bruschetta


This was in Vegetarian Times, September 2008. My neighbors request it every time they have a get-together. It's absolutely fabulous, and the first chimichurri recipe I found that really tasted like the real thing. You could use this without the avocados on meats as well. "Cubes of avocado are folded into chimichurri—an Argentinean sauce made of chopped parsley, cilantro, garlic, vinegar, and oil—to create a Latin variation on bruschetta, a classic Italian starter."
