Instructions

  1. Coarsely mash avocado in medium bowl. Add chives, lemon zest, 1 tablespoon of lemon juice, 1/8 teaspoon of salt, and 1/8 teaspoon of pepper and stir to combine.
  2. Spread avocado mixture evenly on one side of each slice of bread. Top each with 2 slices prosciutto.

Notes
Flavorful baby arugula is a versatile green to keep on hand. Use it to add a peppery punch to sandwiches and salads but also as a great substitute for basil in pesto or for spinach in a dip.
