  • 1 clove garlic, halved
  • 3 tbsps extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 ripe avocado, peeled, stoned and diced
  • 100g (31/22 oz) Goat’s Cheese log, rind removed and crumbled (available from deli counter)
  • Juice 1 small lemon
  • 1 tbsp chopped basil, plus 12 small sprigs to garnish
  • 1/2 small red onion, finely chopped
