The fresh taste of the avocado in this recipe made my heart smile! I hope you like it as much as I did!

serves 4 ( 7 points +)

  • 1 ( 8 oz) French baguette
  • 1 avocado
  • 2 T. fresh lemon juice
  • 2 T. low-fat Greek yogurt
  • 1/8 tsp. sweet paprika
  • 1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper

  • 3 T. frozen corn, thawed
  • 2 T. finely chopped green pepper
  • 1 T. basil leaves
  • salt and pepper to taste

Cut baguette in half and then slice open so that you have four pieces. Toast in a toaster oven or in a regular oven on 400 degrees until crisp.

Mash avocado with 2 T. lemon juice. Salt to taste. Spread avocado over toasted bread.

Combine yogurt, paprika, cayenne pepper and 1/2 tsp. lemon zest in a bowl; set aside.

In a medium bowl, combine crab, corn, green pepper, basil, salt and pepper. Stir in yogurt mixture.

Place crab mixture on top of avocado mixture and serve.
