Purslane and Garlic/Avocado Appetizers

Purslane and avocados just beg to be combined! The rich creaminess of our Haas avocado is the perfect compliment to the crunchiness of Purslane.

Ingredients:
Purslane
Mashed Avocado
Sea Salt
Garlic
Mustard/horseradish mix (no yellow dye!)
Rye bread

This little bite appetizer uses Purslane in place of a lettuce or sprout filler.


Combine crushed garlic,  avocado, sea salt and mash with a potato masher. Don't use a Cuisinart because it will become too smooth. Coat each piece of bread with the mustard/horseradish mix. Spatula bread with avocado mixture, and top with fresh Purslane. Cut into fours and hold in place with a decorative tooth pick.
