Recipe Thursday: A Toast to Millennials with Avocado Toast and Rosé

Millennials get a bad rap about avocado toast. But really, who can resist a perfectly assembled piece of crispy bread topped with impeccably seasoned creamy avocado? That’s just the blank canvas. Think of all the creative combinations of ingredients you can add on top: Eggs, bacon, garbanzo beans, fresh herbs, pico de gallo, cheese – the possibilities are endless. This week we’re toasting millennials’ – or any person’s – love of avocado toast. We’ll start with a protein-packed version from Serious Eats, Avocado Toast With Smoked Salmon, Goat Cheese, and Capers. Avocado and smoked salmon are delicately accompanied by tomatoes, capers, and thin slices of red onion. Goat cheese provides an extra tang, while a squeeze of lemon juice and fresh ground pepper bring everything into balance.

An optimal wine pairing for this treasure, and a millennial favorite, is rosé. Try something a little different, such as the Austrian Diwald rosé, made from 100% Zweigelt. With a refreshing burst of acidity and notes of red fruits, the brightness inherent in this wine is the perfect counter to the richness of the goat cheese and smoked salmon.
