Avocado Toast With Smoked Salmon, Goat Cheese, and Capers Recipe

Vicky Wasik

This bagel-and-lox-inspired open-faced sandwich combines avocado and smoked salmon, cut through with tomatoes, capers, and thinly sliced rounds of red onion. Goat cheese takes the place of cream cheese for extra tang, while a squeeze of lemon juice and a little fresh black pepper bring everything into balance.
