Avocado Toast with Greens

Top everyone’s favorite trend, avo toast, with herbaceous herbs and tender greens, and a drizzle of tangy balsamic glaze.


4 slices brown bread (house- or bakery-made)
4 Ready-Set-Serve Avocado Chunks
1 tsp. Ready-Set-Serve Lemon Juice
1 tsp. kosher salt
16 oz. blended greens and herbs
1/4 C balsamic glaze


Mash avocado chunks with lemon juice and salt. Spread equal portions on four slices of brown bread. Top with greens; drizzle each with one tablespoon balsamic glaze.


1 bunch Markon First Crop Asparagus, steamed

1/4 C Markon First Crop Basil

2 T Markon First Crop Chervil

2 T C Ready-Set-Serve Lemon Juice

2 cloves Ready-Set-Serve Peeled Garlic

1 tsp. lemon zest

1/4 tsp. cumin

1/4 tsp. coriander

1/4 C extra virgin olive oil

1/2 tsp. kosher salt

1/4 tsp. red pepper flakes

16 large shrimp, cleaned and threaded onto skewers to prevent curling

1 tsp. kosher salt

Olive oil + 2 cloves Ready-Set-Serve Peeled Garlic, for poaching

Edible petals and micro greens for garnish


Slice tips off asparagus and reserve. Add basil, chervil, one cup steamed asparagus stalks, lemon juice, zest, cumin, coriander, salt, pepper flakes, and oil to a food processor and blend until chunky.

Heat oil and garlic until just bubbling. Add shrimp skewers so that shrimp is fully submerged. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook until shrimp is opaque and cooked through. When shrimp are almost cooked, add asparagus tips. Remove all with a slotted spoon and drain on a wire rack.

To plate, arrange tips in a decorative manner. Place shrimp next to asparagus and ladle sauce on top of each one. Garnish with edible petals and micro greens.
