Take a trip to Italy (sans any travel) with this savory tower of toast. It’s packed with simple yet customizable ingredients: whole-grain toast, layered with creamy mashed avocado, antioxidant-rich tomatoes, cheesy mozzarella and fresh, torn aromatic basil leaves. Feel free to tailor the ingredients to your liking by adding arugula, pickled onion, pesto, roasted red pepper, eggplant, sliced figs or strawberries—the possibilities are endless. You then bring it over the top with a drizzle of thick and tangy balsamic glaze (OMG, this is so good). It’s a toast to boast about!

Note about the balsamic: You can either buy thick balsamic glaze at the market or make your own by simmering standard, thinner balsamic vinegar in a small saucepan for 10 to 20 minutes until it reduces and becomes rich, thick and glossy.
