  • Handful of rocket leaves
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

  • Mix the remaining olive oil with the tomatoes and a little seasoning. Spread on a baking sheet and cook for 10 mins or until the tomatoes are softened.

  • Peel, stone and dice the avocado and toss on the lemon juice to avoid browning.

  • Spoon the tomatoes on the baked bread. Top with the avocado and rocket and drizzle with balsamic vinegar and serve.
