I discovered my new favorite quick meal at Bartavelle Coffee & Wine Bar in Berkeley.  Luckily, this is so easy to make and so good for you, not to mention colorful and light.  I team it up with either a salad or fruit.  Beloved in Australia for breakfast, I’ve noticed it lately on more and more menus.  I like to pair it with the famous Upstairs bread from Acme bakery that is named for, and used at, the upstairs Cafe at Chez Panisse.  But it also works nicely on a more common bread.  I toast my bread carefully under the broiler because my toaster just can’t do the job right. 

2 thick slices of good bread
          Toast lightly and cut in half.

olive oil 
          Drizzle on the toast.

1 avocado, quartered
          Place halved quarters on a bread half.  Squash gently with a fork. 

1 lemon, quartered
          Drip over avocado.

sea salt
          Sprinkle over lightly.

Serves 2.
