Sunday Morning Sumac-Avocado Toast

Sunday Morning Sumac-Avocado Toast

If truth be told, we could eat this mouth-wateringly delicious avocado toast for any meal, on any day. A splash of balsamic vinegar and the citrusy kiss of sumac are perfect foils for the creamy avocado. This is also divine with Za’atar sprinkled on top. You be the judge. And of course, you can top this off with a poached or fried egg. So many possibilities!
