I am always looking for new ideas for simple meals. This is an easy and delicious meal that makes a great lunch or a hearty snack. It combines tasty ingredients for a low-carb diet plan.

Ingredients

  • Mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • Parmesan cheese, grated

  3. Sprinkle mozzarella cheese on top.
  4. Place slices of avocado all over.
  5. Add olive oil and salt on top.
