Dice the red onion, garlic, cucumber, capsicum and tomato as directed. Combine in a medium-sized bowl with the lemon juice.
Toast the bread in a toaster or oven until golden and crispy.
Spread a thin layer of mashed avocado over the toast.
Add a scoop of the vegetable mix onto each slice of toast.
Drizzle balsamic vinegar over the top and season with cracked pepper if desired.
Garnish with torn basil and enjoy!
¼ red onion, diced
1 clove garlic, minced
½ cucumber, diced
½ capsicum, diced
1 large tomato, diced
¼ lemon, juiced
4 slices wholegrain bread

You can substitute the bread for a gluten-free option if required, or another type of brown, grainy bread.
Aim for bread with sodium of less than 300mg/100g and without added oil if possible. Check that the first ingredient has the word "wholemeal" – if not it will likely have refined flour as the main ingredient.
