The fresh flavours, vibrant colours and the satisfying crunch of the bread, tick all the boxes for my ideal lunch (or starter). The combination of ingredients in this dish, may look a little strange, but trust me, it really works. The creamy avocado contrasts with the juiciness of the blueberries, and the lime zest brings the two together. The saltiness of the feta adds another dimension to the flavour. Give it a try, you won’t regret it!
