Mexican Salsa and Bread

    • 1 loaf French bread, sliced in half
    • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
    • 1 tsp. ground cumin
    • 1 tsp. garlic powder
    • 1 (16 oz.) jar mild salsa
    • 1 1/2 cup Mexican blend cheese, shredded
    • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese, shredded
    • 2 avocados, diced
    • 1 1/2 tsp. fresh limejuice
    • 2 tsp. fresh cilantro, finely snipped
    • 2 tsp. scallions, finely chopped
    • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
    • 1/4 tsp. celery salt
    • Salt 

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Lay sliced French bread cut side up onto a baking sheet.
  3. In a small bowl combine oil, cumin, and garlic powder and stir.
  4. Brush the seasoned oil mixture onto the cut side of both bread halves with a pastry brush. Spread salsa evenly on top of bread halves. Sprinkle the halves with the Mexican cheese and top with crumbled Parmesan cheese. Place into 425 degrees oven.
  5. Bake 8 to 12 minutes, or until cheese is melted and bread is good and crusty.
  6. While the bread is baking, prepare the relish.
  7. In a medium size bowl, mix avocados, limejuice, cilantro, scallions, garlic, celery salt, and salt to taste and set aside.
  8. Remove the bread from the oven. Allow cooling a few minutes.
  9. Using a serrated knife, slice bread halves across into 2-inch strips.
  10. To serve put salsa bread strips on a nice plate or platter with avocado relish in a separate bowl.
