  • 2 Tbs. red wine vinegar
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced (1 Tbs.)
  • ¾ tsp. salt
  • ½ tsp. red pepper flakes
  • ½ tsp. dried oregano
  • ¼ tsp. ground black pepper
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • ¼ cup chopped cilantro
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 avocados, peeled, pitted, and cubed
  • 6 ½-inch-thick slices whole-grain or ciabatta bread, toasted

Preparation
