Mexican Salsa and Bread

Mexican Salsa and Bread

This would make either a great dish to take to the party or a great gift from the kitchen.

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 lime juice
                    2 tsp. fresh cilantro, finely snipped
                      2 tsp. scallions, finely chopped
                        1 garlic clove, finely chopped
                          1/4 tsp. celery salt

                            Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
                            Lay sliced French bread cut side up onto a baking sheet
                            In a small bowl combine oil, cumin, and garlic powder and stir.
                            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.
                            Bake 8 to 12 minutes, or until cheese is melted and bread is good and crusty.
                            While the bread is baking, prepare the relish.
                            In a medium size bowl, mix avocados, lime juice, cilantro, scallions, garlic, celery salt, and salt to taste and set aside.
                            Remove the bread from the oven. Allow cooling a few minutes.
                            Using a serrated knife, slice bread halves across into 2-inch strips.
                            To serve put salsa bread strips on a nice plate or platter with avocado relish in a separate bowl.
