Green is one of my favorite colors in general, but especially to eat. Just check out our Instagram feed – more than 50, it looks like 500 shades of green!
Today’s toast is one of my favorites because it tastes as great as it looks! Lime and mint add freshness, the zucchini gives a good crunchy texture, and the avocado balances out the crunch with smoothness. This combination makes for pure green bliss.
